Default Bottled a wee heavy yesterday and almost fainted

Yep. I took the top off my fermenter yesterday at bottling time and took a big whiff, and I must have sucked in a few liters of CO2 and dropped to my knees as my brain was quickly deprived of oxygen. It felt like my head got shocked with an electrode! Pretty funny, and I know Im not the only one.

I've done it too. Don't stick your nose in a fresh kicked keg to check out how it smells.

Y'know, I've heard this BS from multiple people on this site. Sniffing a fermenter has no ill effects. To prove it, I'm gonna do it right nowiop;/fg;k/dsz

At least you didn't go headfirst into the beer. I doubt you sanitized your head...

That's funny. I've never done that, but now that I know, I am going to think about it everytime I open my bucket.

I think most brewers have pulled this at least once.

Also, if you're searching for a leak in the CO2 system of your chest freezer kegerator, don't lean over the edge too far! The bottom is one big pool of CO2, what a way to go...

You could have an Open Kegerator service and have a couple of taps serving up Dead Guy's IPA. What a Hoot...

I just watched a special on Discovery Channel about that lake in Africa that was sequestering millions of tons CO2 at the bottom. It erupted and killed around 1700 people up to 16 miles from the lake, as well as thousands of livestock, by suffocation. Not a good thing to breath in.
