I had a 10 gallon lager batch in 2 corny kegs in my temperature controlled chest freezer. I was doing something in there and for whatever reason took out the temperature probe and forgot to put it back in making the freezer run 100% of the time. Froze both kegs solid before I found out. That beer sucked and I was looking forward to the batch.

Dropping a big ass binder clamp into my kettle just before it hit a boil, it got wedged under my element and I couldn't get it out. Sooo frustrating....

Not a big deal, but a friend and I simultaneously opened 2 bottles of a very over-carbonated saison, subsequently spraying the entire contents all over the kitchen. Wife was pissed.

I broke a floating thermometer in the brew kettle. The little steel weights sunk to the bottom. I went ahead and fermented and bottled as planned, but the beer had a rusty flavor to it

I had a crimp in my wort chiller hose today. The hot water caused the vinyl to stretch and explode like an overfilled water balloon while I was watching.

one time we had a kit that had extra LME in it. It was first beer we brewed and they claimed there was irish moss in there as well. So long story short, I confused the extra LME with priming sugar and the priming sugar with Irish Moss and then not too much later, boom, bottle bombs. We saved a few bottles and put them in a growler (that my brother released the pressure on every day. Anyway it came out really carbonated. Like worse than Champagne.
