While trying to shuffle a second keg into the fridge, which turned out to be quite a bit more difficult than I first anticipated... I knocked the thermostat and managed to freeze everything in it.

I can see frozen beer in the beer line, and a longneck I opened had ice in it, so I suspect the keg is at least partially frozen.

Have I killed my brew?

Thanks
Ben :)

Thanks Linz!

I to had this problem, i have been brewing for our local comps here and i must have knocked the thermostat in my lager fridge and have managed to freeze 6 full kegs.

My question is not have i stuffed my beer but will it have a unhealthy affect on it considering they are all for comps.

They will be fine, you need to bring them back up to kegging temp and leave for a while for the beer to reabsorb the gas. You will not even know the difference.
