new beer harmful?


I just kegged my first 2 brews and can't resist tasting the odd cupful to see and taste what it's doing.
It tastes pretty good already - 4 days old.
Does it harm either me or the beer to draw it off this early?

You're fine. Nothing wrong with "sampling the wares" as they mature. It's a good way to "taste for yourself" the final stages of finishing.
Enjoy!

when you sample you are looking to see if you can see a bacterial infection, a black line around the rim. tell yourself that, anyway. stop when you are kissing the carpet. dug88 > You're fine.

Obviously new beer is not good for one's mental state :-)
My question really was whether live yeast in the new beer could cause stomach upsets; but being English I didn't like to be that blunt...

Live yeast will often (but not always) give a person gas. So take some Beano or Gas-X with it if you're concerned. If you don't care about a little flatulence, then be sure your significant other is around when you begin farting so she can complain about it. ;)

Beano is an enzyme that breaks complex sugars into simple sugars. It wouldn't do anything in this case.

Bullshit. Complex carbohydrates (long chain carbs) account for most flatulance. The body can't break them down but bacteria (the good ones living in a symbiotic relationship in our gut) can and do, producing gas, mostly methane, in the process. Steve W.

You know... that makes perfect sense! You learn something new every day I guess.

seems fairly highly regarded around here and it suggests the yeast layer at the bottom can have the descibed effects, so I guess beer that hasn't had time to settle also could.

Yes. You're gonna die. But before you do... send the rest of the batch to me for analysis, ok? :-)
Actually, mini-tastes (assuming proper sanitation is maintained) is a good way to learn about the process, in my opinion.
