Just got home from being away from the weekend and the thermostat in my keg fridge must be on the fritz.

I know have two frozen kegs.

Anyone else ever had frozen kegs ?

Eagerly awaiting two kegs to thaw,
Doc

Doc, I have also had a couple of kegs freeze on me a few years ago :angry: . I was a bit concerned at the time but didn't have any problems with the kegs or beer. There was no noticeable change in the quality of the beer - THANK GOD :)

Phew.

Thank god for that.
I'd be really pissed off if I had to lose the full keg of Robust Porter and the half keg of Australian Strong. The Weizen hadn't completely frozen but that keg was down to 2/5 ths anyway.

So tonight I'm drinking from the keg that is in the lager fridge in the shed (that is currently cold conditioning an Oktoberfest).

Beers,
Doc

thats it after a week end away your hanging for a tasting of your beer.
being frozen just makes it hard to drink.
