Default Boom

This is the ceiling:

This *was* the shower:

This is the remains of 34 bottles of stout:


The culprit? Lack of climate control. This was in un air conditioned basement apartment, the outside temp reached 95+ for at least four days running.
10 bottles out of 44 survived. 4 of those went to Canada with me (where I was when this happened).

Conditioning beer does not like heat.

Haha, that's awesome.

On the upside, I cracked open the first of the remaining bottles this evening, with my landlord (who has been understanding). Its pretty good if I do say so myself. Hes not much of a stout fan, but still enjoyed it.

Damn man! I'm glad no one was around that when it let off.


Your pics are gruesome!

Awesome. Epic explosion! I'd call the Canada trip a really lucky break.
