Howdy, I accidently used 1/2 amount of the bittering hops I should have in an oatmeal stout a couple months ago.
I thought it might be fine but since kegging I've had a few tastes and it's a no go. Too sweet and malty (not in a good way) .
Is there any way to bitter a beer that's finished fermenting and in the keg?

Boil up more bittering hops in water and add this tea to the keg, you will be able to adjust to taste and add more again if needed.

I just did this recently, in a brew that came out at a higher OG than I expected, I inreased the amount of hops at a 30 min addition in the recipe to get the IBU I wanted then boiled the additional amount for 30 minutes in a litre of water, which i got about 300 mL of tea from.
