Have beer downstairs, which i accidentally froze, while trying to cool it, and forgot to take it out the freezer. It's now thawed, i've been a little concerned becuase of the gases, if it is consumable, but kept around for visitors, so that i could drink the descent stuff, which has now ran out.

Any advise would be good

If it smells like hydrochloride then it is ok to drink.

hydrochloride?! That doesn't sound like anything I'd want to drink.

From what I understand, as long as the beer bottles don't explode in the freezer, it may taste a little "off" when thawed, and almost certainly be completely flat... but if your guests don't mind odd tasting flat beer, it won't kill them or anything.

(however, if you're likely to give your guests frozen beer, please remind me not to visit your house... ;) )

Sure, you can drink it, but it's flat. Just don't shake the can to mix the liquid with the frosty chunks to defrost it faster and then open it, or you'll be washing the ceiling.

It may be a little late by then.

i'm quiltily kicking in to half a bottle of a gorgeous liquer called Amarula - which is amazing, and i really should not drink it, but its getting harder to resist.

The weak fabric of my soul.

Thanks Marcia, not only you web guru's guru, you're also very useful when it comes to beer consumption as well, i think i'm going to finish this class, and get on the case with the beer.

It is completly thawed. to the point that it is warm, but its in a CAN.

You can drink it (not that I have ever tried that before ;-) well maybe) but it tastes awful. (Could be the flat thing, mentioned by others)

Is that the cache of PBR you've been bragging about lately?

Adam, its just like pavlov's bell. I still have found memories of all that consumption on an epic scale at pubcon.

The words i wanted to hear, i've never had such an underlying feeling that everybody whats to know that i am consuming my beers fit for a guest.

Warm beer, cold beer, frozen beer, it's all beer. They sell beer on a stick.

Late last year, Halle, Germany, tavern owner Bernd Helbig introduced "beersicles"
at about $3.50 each

With that said, it is safer to drink flat beer than it is to serve it. ;)

I do this almost every weekend. I generally fall asleep (on my keyboard) with one in the freezer and it's fine the next morning. (er... I mean evening).

Little flat, but I think bottled beer seems to kep it's fixx a little better than cans...

I think she feels, that the beer that was leaving for guests, is a little creul, just in case it kills them. Which it turns out is not the case, and i am happily sipping the first of many.

Red wine, is my choice for the evening ;)

Proudly. :) In the extreme, if I do say so myself.

Brewing my second batch of homebrew this weekend as well... the first batch is still waiting in its bottles for a tasting, but no need to let that hold up the assembly line, y'know!

nice, you know it is always interesting to taste the beer through out the maturing process because it gives you a better appreciation for it.

Though some are better than others in their green stage. Some are horrendous.

Cool girl ;)

I tried brewing my own many years ago but my ex-girlfriend was a bit of a nutter and kept adding bottles of spirits to it...

Ouch!

The stout was extremely green at bottling (after being in the fermenter for 5 days, then in a secondary fermenter for a week)... it will have been in the bottles for two weeks as of this Sunday, so I figure I'll give it a try, and if it's still needing to mellow, I'll move it to the garage and forget about it for a month or so.

The next one will be a pale ale, and I've heard lighter beers mature more quickly, so perhaps it won't try my patience as badly. ;)

Soon, I won't even have to stoop to commercial microbrews! (I blame 4eyes and all that real ale he made me drink while I was in England... he ruined me.)

<added>kept adding bottles of spirits to it
Scary! Everyone's kept their hands off mine... so if it's lousy, I've got no one to blame but myself.</added>

What patience Mivox. When I get a hankering for a beer, I just can't wait a month.

Hehhe... I never said I'd quit drinking in the meantime. A lot of microbreweries use the same style of bottles that homebrew shops sell, so I consider it an investment in bottling equipment. :)

that's why you keep rolling out the batches.

I did tons of it when I lived in Montreal but you can't buy kits or anything here. You have to go to place where they brew it for you, you just come in and stir it. I have heard that, here in Vancouver, it is actually illegal to brew it in your house. That would explain why you can't seem to get the kits anywhere.

I have even done a few batches with my Dad where we started from scratch, boiled barley and all that, good fun.

Nothing brings a family together like brewing beer. *sigh*

Home Brewing > and a man called caine

incompatible, by any modelling association. I could see it now, i would arrive back home with a handful of buddies, after telling them how good the homebrew that i started making a couple of days before is. End result, no beer, puke all over the place and a load of drunking debauchery.

Just today I told myself I don't need anymore beer for a couple weeks. I could lose a few pounds before ski season...

damn it...

pass me a chimay!

Ohh.. have you ever half frozen a beer and then screened out the frozen water to get just the booze.. I've never done it but it sounds like a good experiment...

wait, is it friday?
