Aaaaaarrrrrrrgh!
« on: July 01, 2017, 05:59:14 PM »
Woke up to 4 batches of beer on the garage floor. The magnetic tap list white board fell down perfectly and opened all 4 faucets. At least I have an excuse to convert my other fridge and get rid of the current old one...

F**k !!!!!!!! The odds of that opening all 4 taps must be like winning the lottery, but in reverse. Really sorry to hear that, Chris. Better fire up the strike water - can't be out of homebrew all summer!

Ouch! A lot of labor went into those four kegs! Now probably a lot of labor to clean up the garage floor.

Yeah pretty bummed and I don't even have anything in the fermenter as I had just kegged a hoppy lager that i didn't even get to touch. My wife is awesome though. She said I should brew tomorrow and Tuesday. My brother in law said we can do a double batch at his house so I should be back up pretty quick. I have a sack of pilsner so may go with a pils or smash so I don't have to go to the lhbs if I do brew tomorrow.

I did get the newer bigger fridge converted over and all my faucets and lines cleaned so that's good. It had been way too long.

 :(  >:( Well, at least it was the garage.  That could ruin a lot of stuff if it happened inside.

That may be the saddest thing I've ever heard. You're taking it remarkably well. I'd still be punching holes in the garage wall and flinging kegs about.

I am also impressed with your attitude.  I had a couple of bad days recently, but yours put it into perspective.  Thank you for sharing.

I think the wife was surprised I didn't cry. Seriously. I might be surprised myself.

Yikes.. that's like Shakespeare level tragedy.... Sounds like you've got a good support system though.

Cheers to the future!

What does beer licked up off of a concrete floor taste like?  ;)
