Not a problem for naturally carbonated beers.

Except maybe that you're pushing them out with CO2?

He means if kegged. If you keg condition, you still need to use co2 to push the beer out of the keg.

Unless you use a cask...

I just bought one. Won't be able to cask all my beers, since I can't finish them that quickly. However, all "special" beers (for thanksgiving, parties, etc.) will likely be cask conditioned and served via gravity tap.

Might even try it with a lager, though I'd obviously have to deviate from traditional methods to try and make it work.
Corn is a fine adjunct in beer.

And don't buy stale beer.

Ah, thanks. I don't use kegs so didn't understand the reference to pushing.
