Default kegging isn't always quicker w/ pix

http://members.cox.net/driverd/Copy%20of%20SSPX0187.jpg


1st time kegging, I read for a week. Well I hope the pix turns out, I know you like them. I was giddy and in a great mood, 3 homebrews in when I got careless. I knocked my bucket off the counter top when I was getting ready to clean it. I found out there are a lot of nooks and crannies in these blinds. Took me an hour to clean up. Thank god SWMBO was out shopping for a Halloween outfit.

at least you got the beer into the keg before you knocked if off the counter.

Agreed. The mess afterward was bad but if after 4 weeks I knocked the fermentor over, I would have been heartbroken. Thanks for the warm fuzzy.

You should have just walked away and took the chance that your wife wouldn't notice.

If that's the worst you've had, then count yourself lucky. I had a 32oz bottle of yeast slurry/trub explode in my bar. Floor to ceiling, cabinets, liquor bottles, me, etc... splattered with a greenish, baby poo like (smell too) substance. I still find spots of it now and then, no matter how much I clean.
