Default Well this blows...

Of course this happens with the Octoberfest I lagered all summer.

Anyone know if Northernbrewer carries two foot straws?

That just made me run to the garage and check the 10gal I kegged and put on gas this morning. That sucks.

Ahhhhh.....my condolences.

That happened to a truly awesome Pilsner that I brewed and lagered for months in hopes to enjoy over the summer. Was a loose cobra tap that I used to sample the beer that got mine.
I got only one glass before my kezer became a wading pool.

Auto-siphon comes in handy to purge the keezer.

Siphon it, filter it, and keg it. Only if it was that simple, sorry for your loss.

Thanks for the auto-siphon suggestion - worked like a charm.

There's still a few tastes left in the keg. Of course it's tasty.

Oh the humanity!

My condolences, when I have a mishap it usually is on the beer I worked forever designing, and refining a recipe, LOOOONG brew day, or something similar.

A quick ordinary bitter, or simple hefe? Never going to have a stuck poppet, never going to have the cat rub up on a tap handle and dump, nothing bad ever happens....

A three step decoction mash martzen that has lagered for half a year, or a wee heavy that took 12 hours to brew, aged for months in the fermentor, then racked to a whiskey barrel for another 2 months before racking to a keg and carbing up with intent of bottling from the keg???

Yup those ones ended up in the drain
