Default New Lesson Learned...

I've been brewing a little over two years, and kegging for all but two batches of that. Yesterday, I went to disconnect the blown cider keg (and the other kegs) and clean the lines with BLC. I've never de-pressurized my kegs before pulling off the liquid post. I will be in the future. I ended up with a face full (and ceiling full) of the dregs from the cider keg.

Just how in the world do you think it got to be this old?"

Sometimes the poppet does stick. I always de pressurize before unhooking.
