How many kegs?
 
How many kegs do you own and use regularly? I have nine cornies that I use all the time. A friend of mine just bought a bar and brought me 20 pin lock kegs that were in the shed behind the place. I"m not sure what I will do with them. I thought about rebuilding them and keeping them for future use but I'm not sure I need them. I have a few friends that brew but they are not serious enough to give them to. Maybe I should just fill them all.

I have 7 plus 2 2.5gal but I can only fit 5 max in my fridge at one time.

I have 7, but only 2 are in working order. The others need seals and/or missing parts to get working.

I'd hold onto the kegs. I only see the prices rising on them. If you don't end up needing them, you can probably get some decent coin for them in a while.

I have five, 5g ball lock kegs. One has Gatorade in it, one has a BierMunchers brew in it, the third a strongly hopped and high ABV IPA that is being force carbed. The other two.. waiting in the stables to be used. Doubt I'll ever get all five online at the same time.

Cornys make excellent secondaries. Get a nice barleywine or even regular wine program going and let em age!

I like the idea of a long aging barleywine or RIS in the keg. Usually I try to fill them all before summer and let them condition in the cool cellar. If I want to bring one out I can dryhop it before serving.

I have 7 cornies. 5 in the keezer and 2 aging and carbing offline so that I can hopefully always keep 5 taps going. I do 10 gallon batches and have 8 carboys and ferm chamber holds 6.

20 might be a little overkill though too. Im sure you could get a couple taken off your hands for a fair price in the classified section here on HBT.

I have 7x5gal pin locks; one sanitized, one just kicked (great APA my wife loved), the others are holding: apfelwine, IRA, Tripel, Mild, Braggot. Gotta clean & sanitize the APA keg then transfer my Saison & Christmas ale tomorrow to free up fermenters for the weekend:)

This. If they're pin locks, I'm in for a few at a reasonable price.
