|I want to share with you a tale of woe... |
It all started like every other day, got home from work played with the kids, spent some quality family time over dinner and watched "an Idiot abroad" with the wife . Off to the BrewShed i go, Pot glass in hand for my nightly ritual of testing ,tasting and general pondering about everything beer . First up refrac test of the American Amber that i'd lovingly prepared earlier mmmmmm tasting good, ferments finished and dry hopping had started jolly good i say. Next stop beersmith and EZYwater to continue planning my next beer, an oatmeal stout, pauses for a second , licks lips geez i could go a beer.
I grab the tap handle open her up she lets out a couple of spits then nothing WTF i say. As i open the lid of my chest freezer kegerator (you can see where this is going ) i notice a lot of ice around the insides , i grab the keg give it a shake and nothing FROZEN F...ING SOLID as are the three other kegs, i start saying to myself " its still good, its still good " i convince myself it'll be fine.

I start thinking , i saw the person formerly known as my 18 month old son Archie suspiciously playing near my kegerator yesterday looked down and he'd hit the deep freeze switch. Bugger.
Now the next bit is a bit fuzzy, i think i may of blacked out.
Just as i worked out who the culprit was, i realised my 6 year old Magnum of Chimay Blue (which i had bought when the person formerly known as my son was born) was sitting next to my frozen popsicle kegs.
I reached in and my worst fears we're realized .
