My beer just exploded!
« on: May 15, 2007, 11:51:55 AM »
One of my home brews has just gone off bang ? literally - and blown the top off the containment vessel (cool box) that was supposed to keep the beer in if the worst happened.  shocked003

Now have beer all over garage and a nice ?cascade? effect from the garage ceiling?  noooo:

Oh what a frightful mess. And probably an unpleasant aroma too. I mentioned this to Dorothy and she recommends some rubber gloves and some Flash. Good luck.

We once had a similar incident with a Christmas Pudding we were boiling. We still have a mark on the kitchen ceiling, but we try not to talk about it. Actually, we try not to talk about quite a lot of things. Dorothy says that "careless talk costs lives", but she has a long memory.

STOP PRESS!

Terror cell discovered (by accident) when the fiendish bomb making factory blew up killing a canary, seriously frightening the cat and causing a wireless operator at GCHQ to fall off his stool!

Neighbours were quoted as saying "And they seemed such a nice couple.. doesn't bear thinking about.. was a bit strange tho.. always fiddling with computers and boxes of cables.. had to be up to no good"

The Syrian Embassy denied any connection with the terror cell and denounced the barbaric use of alcohol as a weapon against Islam, reports of a local fall-out of Pork Scratchings was thought to be malicious gossip.

It doesn't it goes sticky and then it is even more difficult to clean up. Run along now and find a mop.

Well if you can salvage any of the brew you could always try flogging it as a Bombardier knock off  lol:
You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe

I was left to my own brand of cooking point: I got myself a Fray Bentos steak and kidney pud in a tin, and put it on the stove, I had made a small hole in the lid as the instructions said on the tin, placed the whole thing in a large pot of boiling water, job done. So off I went to watch the telly while my dinner was cooking.  About 20 minuets later there was a very loud bang from the kitchen, I thought the window had blown shut in the wind. When I went into the kitchen to dish up my pud, I found it all over the kitchen, the bastard thing had exploded, it took me all weekend to clean up the mess, when my wife got home she was delighted I had kept the kitchen so clean  whistle:
