So awhile back I made this big stout that finished high, which I didn't worry about since it had tons of unfermentables in it. I bottled it, and it ended up overcarbonating, so I figured I'd use it in my liquid bowl in the smoker. A friend of mine was over one day and he had some...he loved it, once the foam subsided. So I gave him a couple sixers, told him to keep 'em cold.

So he came in today, said that, last night, he was sitting around watching tv and all of a sudden, POP! POP! He opened his pantry...covered in stout and broken glass. I'm a terrible person.

Too bad for him. Not really so bad for you.

Ah - the importance of following instructions. Now he has a mess and no beer.
