Default How Long Does a Corny Keg Last For You?

I just got my kegerator going 4 days ago and kegged my nut brown and the SWMBO Slayer and im already out of the nut brown! It was a damn good beer! My friends and family had quite a bit and loved every drop, how long does your beer last??? I still have 3/4 of the Belgian Blonde =)

Mine last anywhere from 6 hours to over 6 weeks. If I'm the only one drinking, a keg will last a month or more. If I have a few parties, the time is reduced drastically.

If it is a popular beer and I have several people drinking from it, it can go in a week pretty easy. On the average a corny will last a month or longer.

One day if it's really good and people come over. If I'm the only one drinking it (unlikely) it probably goes three or four weeks.

Usually just me drinking it and it lasts on average 3 weeks.

Maybe a month or longer for bigger beers.

Bitters, milds etc (and really good beers) will last about 2 weeks.

From as little as 2 hours to 3 years depending on the type of brew and if I want to share.

If it's just me and the wife drinking - I think I floated the first keg in about 2 weeks ('twas a heavy drinking period). Now it takes me a month or two.

I go through my drinking phases - generally I'll drink 24 ounces a night. Sometimes I keep going back to the keg. Sometimes I never make it there. I think my average is a keg a month (wife's drinking is negligible enough not to count).

5 gallons = 640oz

640oz / 20oz (Imperial Pint Glass) = 32 glasses

32 glasses / 2 glasses a day (average) = 16 days

Though, I have four taps and 10 kegs total.

when I only had a single tap kegerator it would usually last between one night to 5 days. I now built an 8 tap kegerator and they are much more spread out, ciders and stouts last months but lagers and pale ales still go within a few weeks. I have a lot of friends who like to drink beer.

3 months so far. I also drink plenty of commercials that I want to try. Probably faster lately, since I've had a lighter beer on tap. But now I have two taps going. I usually am the only one drinking it.
