A sight no-one wants to see…

I did some brewing prior to nipping off on a month long holiday.  I came back, noticing that the fresh gas bottle was registering empty.  I naturally assumed I had a gas leak from one of my JG fittings.  I was wrong…

Opening the lid, I was greeted with a sight that no brewer wants to see – precious beer all the way up to the compressor hump.  One of the poppets had leaked and the gas cylinder had emptied a full keg of wonderous dry-hopped pale ale and then itself.  Bah.

I guess the only upshot of this is that a) my gas lines don’t leak after all; and b) I have proven the keezer to be water-tight.

  1. Water tight? Isn’t it beer tight? 😀
