Sacrifice to the beer gods.

Post by brhenrio » 1 year ago

Well i have been delaying putting holes in my fridge in case i want to convert one of my freezers into a keezer. Got home last night and smelled stale beer coming from garage. My most recent brew along with 20lbs of co2 had been sacrificed and were on the garage floor and almkst all dried up. It was a really good beer too.

I closed fridge door and tap handle opened. Filled fridge and then slowly drained to the floor drain in my garage. I have just been using my taps like picnic taps until i can make a decision on what appliance i want to put holes in. The picture shows it best what i have been doing.

Sorry to hear that. Yea, I've been there as I am sure it will happen to most of us sometime. I see you have air in your fermentors, so to make the beer gods happy you just have to brew another batch.
