Default Explosion!

Good news is that I spent the night at the phillies game. Bad news came from my wife via text message that my coffee stout exploded! Here are the pictures everyone always asks for.

At least you don't have to worry that you fermentation hasn't started yet....? I'd be scared my SWMBO would kill off my brewing after something like that

Same for me. Never had one blow up on me but several batches that did blow off pretty good. Cheap insurance.

Why is it that this kind of stuff ALWAYS happens when the SWMBO is home alone with your brew???? After you get done cleaning up the mess and swearing to always use a blow off in the future I would suggest a night out with her for her great patience and undestanding of your obsession!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! She actually laughed about it. Homebrew has brought us closer.
