PSA: Responding to bottling issues with "you should keg"
This is perhaps my very biggest pet peeve here on HBT.

Some guy will post a question about bottling, or relate a issue he has had. Within half a dozen posts, some enlightened genius/comedic mastermind will respond with a comment along the following lines: "if you really want to fix your bottling problems, keg your beer! Hurr hurr hurr."

I'm not talking about those who advocate kegging in a "this versus that" type of discussion, nor am I bashing those who may bring it up in other appropriate situations.

No, I'm talking about the so and sos that seem to believe that they are somehow superior because they keg, and seem to gain some perverse joy out of annoyingly interjecting themselves into bottling discussions.

Some people bottle because it is more convenient for sharing or trading. Some bottle because they don't own kegging equipment, and may not want to invest in it now/ever. Some may just enjoy bottling.

Forums, and real life, would be better if folks would follow Wheaton's Law. If you aren't familiar with it, look it up.

Now, go ahead and flame me, keggers. :rockin:

I agree. I havn't posted any new threads here on HBT about bottling because (thus far) I have found solutions to my questions already on here. I may have found these answers a little more quickly if I hadn't had to scroll through all the "You should just keg :p" in every thread.

I enjoy bottling because it's easy to share, it's cheap, and my current living situation/income doesn't allow kegging. Even if I did keg, I would still bottle half my batches.

I keg, then bottle...how's that for the worst of both worlds?

Its okay to be a dick on TV, so I would imagine the internet qualifies as well.
I would add that I get sick of whiny people too.

If you kegged, you wouldn't have this problem...:mug:

ever try to smash a keg on a bar top so you could menacingly wield the razor sharp remnants, telling everyone in the room that you'll cut them from skull to scrotum if they don't stop bitching about you playing a threepeat of europe's "the final countdown" on the jukebox???
it works much better with a bottle.
i hear you homebrewdad. "you should keg" is a pretty crappy answer...
