    Two weeks ago I kegged a FWK that had been sitting in the fermenter for nearly three weeks. All went well until I finished and went to attach the CO2 lines to my keg - the gas cylinder was empty. It was also too late in the day to get a refill. I attached the gas line anyway and put the keg into my fermenter

    Eighteen hours later I finally got some new gas and purged the keg.

    Two weeks down the track and I've had my first sample. This beer isn't as good as the other FWKs that I have done and I'm wondering if 18 hours without a CO2 head means that I've oxidised my beer. I'm going to let it sit for another four weeks and see if it improves but if the general consensus is that I've stuffed it I'll probably get rid of it.

    My experience with an oxidised brew (very hoppy double IPA :() was getting the taste of "wet cardboard". You getting anything like that?
