Not to sound like a jerk or anything like that, but seriously this should be a no brainer.

same goes for your immersion chiller that always has a bit of water left inside the coils.

Great picture. It takes a bit of balls to come on the forum and not only admit a mistake, but display pictures of it. Might keep someone from making the same mistake later.

Making fun of the guy that does this does not take balls.

Ouch. Sorry for your loss.

Star San is not a good storage solution, people. It wasn't designed for that.

I store Star San in mine all the time, I live in So Cal so the chances of that happening are slim but from now on it's going in the garage....

Why? I store all my kegs dry then rinse them out and sanitize them before filling.

I just poured a little beer on my carpet for your fallen homey, remember the good times you had with the keg. The partys she was taped at. Every time you were thinking dam I hate bottling. RIP.... I think it would make a good lamp or mail box.

Just curious. - was it pressurized? I was thinking about this while transporting a couple corneys full of beer - I had them at 30psi for the trip thinking that the higher pressure would lower the freeze point - but I may have that backwards -- chemistry class was a long time ago.

Thanks for posting and I bet you never do that one again. Maybe you just helped out another brewer from this post, Bravo

Trivia: we can be thankful that water, unlike most other chemicals, expands when it freezes. Otherwise, lakes would freeze solid as the ice sank (it wouldnt' float!) and there would probably not be any life on this planet.

Water is fairly unique in this property. It does become more dense until it reaches about 40°F degrees, but below that it starts to expand. Once it crystalized into ice at 32°F it expands almost 10%! That's why ice floats, and it's also why your keg looks like it does now. Your keg is a small price to pay for life on earth.
