Gravity after kegging

(1/1)

radamson:
Hi - it seems I forgot to take the final gravity of my last beer before kegging and force carbonating. Is there a reason I can't simply take a gravity reading from a sample poured from the tap, adjusted for the cold temperature, of course?  Will dissolved CO2 affect the specific gravity at this point?
Thanks in advance,
Rick

Cheers!

bonjour:
Dissolved CO2 should have minimal impact BUT. . .

CO2 bubbles in solution however could have a large impact on the gravity reading.  Make sure that you de-gass the sample and you should be fine.

Just agitate the beer for a minute or two and take your reading adjusting for temp.

I just pictured someone yelling at their sample "Drill Sergeant" style!  :D
