Has this happened to you.....

So I'm siting here on a cold winters night. my German mustard has arrived and by the way, its perhaps one of my greatest pleasures in life. anyway, I've got a keg that I'm drawing off, and i lift it feeling the weight to determine how much is left....for the record I've done this a few times over the last week. so tonight I pour a pint, and lift and am certain I'm at my last pint. yet, something magical and mystical happens...its not the last pint; Au Contraire, somehow the beer fairy has shown up and keeps the beer flowing. not one pint, not two, but three and still not a sound of gasping C02.  Not sure if its just  me, but this is one of life's simple pleasures.  ::)

It only happens to me when I'm trying ti kill an almost empty keg to put another one on tap.  I keep drinking and drinking and there's still beer left....

um right....yeah, that sucks  ::)

For me, it's always when I have another beer to keg in the morning. I'll think, "there can't possibly be more than two or three pints left…" Famous last words.

Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

On the other hand I have found that when bottling for competitions, the keg in question rarely has enough for three full bottles.

THIS!  Need a keg, swear there is 1-2 pints left, wife comes down a few hours later and asks why I'm drinking so much.  She doesn't believe the magical keg story for some reason..... ???

I was just thinking last night that this Porter I am into is lasting a long time.  Now I know why...

Mine are disappearing fast lately.  A German Pilsner just tapped on Saturday kicked about halfway through the football game on Sunday.  The crew was thirsty!  I think I got that one right...

I know when a keg is getting close. The best pours are always at the end.

Myles does this more often than I can remember. Haha. He'll commit to killing the "nearly empty keg" and then spend 3-5 days trying to do it. I swear, as soon as the keg hears what his plans are, it starts generating magic beers.
