Neither were your answers. If you actually play along, you'll get a pretty good guess.

How do you think breweries figure out how many fermenters and kegs they need? Math holds the answers....

I have 9 as well. With 6 taps flowing in 2 kegerators at home. I currently have 7 of the 9 full of homebrew, with two more batches in the ferment chamber right now. Only one of the kegs is about to kick, my stout, but I have a friend who bought a corny for HIS kegerator that I brew beer for who likes it and I'll do a double batch of stout next time around.

8 ball, 2 pin and 2 sankey. All 5 gallon. 1 pin always has water the sankeys are for a portable set up and the rest rotate through a 5 spigot keg-o-rator.

I brew mostly in the winter because the conditions in my cellar are perfect for fermentation with temps at 62. I fill as many as possible and set aside for conditioning. When I'm ready to put one on tap I dry hop in the keg. It works for me.

I have 8, and am ordering two more tomorrow. I never thought I'd "need" more than 2. I have room for 4 in my kegerator, and use the outside fridge for carbing and aging.

I have 15 functional and 11 have something in them. Like others have said, get a pipeline going and get stuff aging that enjoys aging.
