Thought it would split at the seam before coming out the top.It kinda reminds me when I get inpatient and put beers in the freezer and then forget about them.

Sorry for you loss

That's why ice floats, and it's also why your keg looks like it does now. Your keg is a small price to pay for life on earth.
+ this and it would be really difficult to make/chill beer without it. Side note if I remember correctly is also the only chemical (H20) that can be seen in all three forms in the same place, ice,water, and steam.
