Welp, I called on my neighbor and we just floated that sucker. I just put Hobgoblin keg in its place. Mission accomplished. Sorry, no porch couch / code nazi drucken rants.

I finally gave in and bottled to sixers and a handful of bombers off a keg of saison that I've had since August.. even then I hadn't killed the keg so I regretfully dumped the last gallon or two.

I don't feel sorry ever for someone who lives in Santa Rosa. No way.

I dragged the family up there in August and had a blast.

Happened with my first chocolate cherry porter keg... Poured multiple beers a night trying to kick it went i lifted it and it was light... Took about another 12 beers to kick.. Or two heavy nights of drinking

I would have let you have free reign on the keg. I like saisons infrequently and I need more space for kegs to justify keeping 5gal of one.

I floated a saison around the same time. I was glad to see it gone. Belgians need to be bottled always. New rule.

Oh, yes, I have done this, actually decided why not bottle a quart? Seal it up, see what happens. I don't think PET ever really explodes. Took me until this afternoon to finish it off.. then I could hardly get up and walk to clean it out. Took a nap after that. I will refill it tomorrow.

I finally got a decent supply of bottles. Rebottled a bunch of stuff from horrible plastic bottles and mason jars. Now I have a big glass of witches brew from the leftovers of the various rebottled batches.

It's horrible, and about 14% alcohol.... I just spotted another mason jar hiding behind a box.

I think I'm pushing too hard. I'm a bit toasted right now. GD thing won't kick. Gonna be a long night.
Hitting a keg hard right now.. guestimating it had about 10 or so left in it lets do this
