    I'd grab a 2l plastic bottle, fill it up and force carb it (go buy a carb cap if you don't have one) chill it and drink it. If you like it enough to drink the 2l in one night, then keg it. If you don't like it enough to get through a few pints its probably not worth kegging.

    Now that's solid advice. Thanks.

    Maybe I'll table this for a bit. I'll get a carbonator cap in the mean time.

    So I dumped one bucket. Then I felt like I was murdering puppies, so I kegged the other bucket. I think I dumped the bucket that had higher FG. The one I kept was S-05 with a FG of 1.004 or something.

    I tasted it again. I can't taste any sour, just a slight bitterness that feels like the hops. But I can't be sure. Either way that keg is getting torn down when it's emptied. Also, is an overnight bleach soak enough for the buckets?

    As long as the bucket is cleaned and there are no deep scratches in it 5 min of 10% bleach will kill anything. Overnight is good too, just make sure the Cl smell is out of the plastic before using them again.

    Overnight seems like a bad idea.

    Three weeks is fine, just air it out for a month or so before use.

    I asked the LHBS guy about this same problem I had, he recommended against the bleach solution as it's hard to get the smell out. He recommended filling the bucket with Star San.

    From a guy who sells sanstar and not bleach.... It will take some time to get the smell out, but it'll come out. It'll take more time the colder it is so if your in a hurry put it next to a radiator.

    I'm drinking this now. It's thin. Like weird thin. I'm reading that thin mouthfeel is an indication of infection. Not really any off flavors, frankly not a ton of flavor period. It's very meh.
