Last night I had two kegs of carbed Hefeweizen that I wanted to take to a party. One had 1 gallon in it, the other 2 gallons.
Thinking I didn't care about sediment (being a Hefe and all), and being a little druck, and being too lazy to set up my usual keg transfer QDs, I just opened each corny up, and poured the little into the big. I was quickly treated to the sight of foam climbing up the keg, and flowing non-stop out the top.
The tower of foam would have been a beautiful sight if it hadn't been caused by my own stupidity. And I ended up with less than the original 2 gallons in the keg.

Feel free to share your own moments of stupidity.

I think the police need to be involved for it to be an official "dumbest thing I've done so far"

I think..

I have mentioned it on here before, but I feel obliged to (again) admit...

1) I used to put boiling wort directly into a glass carboy
2) I use my pool as a chiller.
3) One night, after doing both, I lost 5 gallons of wheat beer into my pool; broken carboy. Giant glass/wort/algae mess.

after taking my gravity reading between my Primary and secondary today i drank the beer that was in my test sample to taste. The alcohol was kind of potent withouth the carbonation. So, in that is a question. Is that much of an alcohol flavor gonna stay in it even after secondary and bottling or will it mellow out...
