So I just went out to my storage shed to grab a cornie to keg a beer that's ready and this is what I found. This keg was full of starsan and look what happened. I live in the Colorado high country and it's been real cold lately. Anyone who lives where it's cold be forewarned!!!

Wow. I guess filling them only a quarter of the way in cold areas makes sense. That is insane.
