Default An Empty Keg Of Sadness

I kegged my first ever batch a few weeks ago, a IPA of my own recipe. While watching hockey I went down for a refill and gurgle gurgle and foam.
This is a very bad time for me...

I see it more positively. An empty keg means you get to drink something new!

That was me last night, and like my keg, the Flyers came up empty in OT. Bummer.

Ahh! That stinks, especially during playoff season. My second keg is just about done (they each took 2 weeks), and there's nothing ready yet. But my Apfelwein is drinkable I'm glad HWMC is still on his low-carb diet, otherwise the beer would probably last just one week!

I guess I drink more each night than I thought, since I was the only person that pulled a beer off of it. Luckily I have an ESB ready to put in this keg and a rye IPA fermenting. Hopefully I can find another keg before its ready.

There are few sadder moments in life than when a keg of your favorite beer kicks. I am truly sorry for your loss.

Well, that is the circle of life, and a new thread announcing the tapping of said keg is indeed a great joy, bringing a new beer into the world.

But here today, we mourne the loss of one fine beer which gave its entire existence to bringing others joy.
