The story starts about 3 months ago when I decided to start kegging seriously. I found 7 kegs on CL that I managed to pick up very cheap. They all needed cleaned resealed and new poppits. three cornies and 4 firestones. after a stop by the LHBS I learned the difference and ordered the parts for the firestones. I never got around to doing anything to them except stripping and cleaning. well today was the day that my original three were in use so I prepared one as I had an IPA to transfer and dry hop. after sorting parts, sanitizing and assembling I placed the hop bag in and filled it. oh the heavenly smell of hi hopped beer. I placed it back in the keezer and hooked up the CO2. it leaked. I grabbed the star san and sprayed to locate the leak, main seal. OK, open it and replace the seal. hit it with CO2 again to find the relief leaking, I had put the wrong one in. fixed that. hit it with CO2 again and it still leaked(a lot) but the star san wasn't helping. I assumed it was leaking from the gas in and to verify swapped connectors and hit the liquid out with gas. as I did this beer flowed out of the liquid out down the keg and all over the inside of the keezer. just then I realized what a DEE DEE DEE I was. yep thats right I forgot to put the seals on the out side of the fittings. I installed the seals and filled it with CO2. then peeled of my t-shirt to clean up a little over a quart of beer from the keezer floor and under the three kegs in it. the down side is the lost beer
The upside is now the house and my t-shirt have a wonderful hop aroma. I hope everyone gets a chuckle out of this. oh the taste from the hydrometer vial tells me that this will be an excellent beer if I can wait long enough.
