This is a reminder (mostly for myself) to check your lines every once in a while.  I lost this much beer while carbing a new keg.  The disconnect had come unscrewed a little bit...   It served as a good opportunity to clean out the keeper though.

Ouch! that's a lot of beer! Hopefully it didn't drain your CO2.

The first beer I kegged had a leaky outpost (slow leak)... I didn't lose nearly that much but it still made a mess of the fridge and garage floor after a couple of days. The ants in the garage had a great party.

So, why do you need a hammer to make beer?  haha  :wavebeer:
Give a man a beer and he'll waste an hour, teach him how to brew beer and he'll waste a lifetime.

Well, I do need more CO2, but I think it was getting there anyway.  And when do you not need a hammer!?  Haha.  Also, note the mop bucket in the background...
