Default Left the tap open? D'oh!

Without fail, EVERY time I reassemble my picnic tap and hose and head out to dispense some beer, I leave the tap OPEN when I snap the QD onto the out post. WOOOOOSH, beer fountain all over the floor. Or, last night, my work pants. Boo-urns.

Anyone else have a problem like I do? Anyone else do something utterly retarded, EVERY time, without fail?

(My other is taking an OG reading. I always forget until 2 hours after I pitch my yeast.)

yep, done that several times, store the picnic taps open, and sometimes forget to close them before use. Somehow remembered to close it last night when I tapped my new IPA.

Uh, nope, but I have left the tap open once on my kegerator. Got quite a beer bath, but only ONCE!

I've done the same thing as EdWort. And like him it only happened once, now I always check the tap first

Yeah. I told myself after it happened the first time that I would check it every time, too.
We see how well that's worked out, since it's happened three more times this week.

Not every time, but I've also left the fermenter's spigot open on occasion and smacked the taps while working around the kegger. My former brewing buddy snagged a tap while wearing his Roadcrafter & filled a leg up, crotch to sock.

Bummer on the tap though...
