Okay guys I'm in trouble, I'm supposed to bring my corny to the office xmas party and I've been taste testing all week to make sure everything is perfect, I now have a half of keg. Can I rack some more beer to fill it up? Any problems I need to be aware of?
Thanks
John

Do you want to blend the beer already in the keg with other beer? Why not merely bring the half full keg and serve it until it is empty? Or bring a second keg of another beer.

Bill, I brewed 10 gallons of the SNPA and still have the other half in a carboy waiting to be put in my only usable keg. I didn't know if mixing a carbed with non-carb could lead to taste problems or any other unforseen issues

I have done similar things - if anything the flavors are improved through blending. Just make sure you allow for yeast flocculation if the new beer isn't yet chilled. Force carbbing should be no problem.

"Why not merely bring the half full keg"

because it is not half full, it is half empty.
maybe he should wait until the party is half over to show up.

seriously, there should be no problem with the keg beer.

It takes 3 days to get a beer up to pressure, and about 2 days if you add more beer that is flat. that is the only thing you have to worry about. I mix beers in the keg all the time, and sometimes in the glass too.
