Help!! I just found my keg of light pilsner totally frozen in the garage. I had forgotten about it during that artic freeze we just had the last couple days in Michigan. I went out today to check on it and it is frozen. Is there anything I can do or should I just write it off and start over?

I brought in 11 kegs and 8 cases in various stages of icecubediness yesterday.

They're thawed out now and I hope they're OK.

The brew is fine. Just check the keg for leaks.
