Back in July of 2012, I made a batch of NB’s Oud Bruin de Table (http://www.northernbrewer.com/shop/oud- … n-kit.html)
It has aged undisturbed since, and I was thinking that now might be a good time to bottle, etc.
However, when I went to look at the carboy, there’s a nice 2 inches of some sort of sludge on the top of the beer. I’ve never worked with an aged beer, and was wondering if this means it’s so shot that a taste test to figure out if it’s shot is not advisable.
I’ve never really worked on any sort of aged beer before, and I’m kinda bummed that after nearly 2 years I might lose the batch. I really appreciate any advice.
