30 this month. Been brewing for...well, quite a bit longer than 9 years

Used to tick me off so much that I could brew great beer, but not buy it. Seems silly...

Your on!! (3rd as well)

I figure I can slow down a bit once I have a decent enough stock but getting it there has been some effort. I can see where the bottling is going to get on my nerves soon...

I'm 50. I started brewing about 10 years ago, but didn't brew from about 1999-2004.

I've been brewing again like a crazy man since last May when we purchased a new house.

Desert...I agree, bottling will suck. Janx and other keggers are warming me up to that idea...although I like bottles. I'd like to build a cabinet to store tons of 'em for aging.

Ah, built the shelving under my bar this last weekend 12 case storage capability

If I get to kegging, I plan on having growlers around for portability when necessary. Already got two that I get filled at the microbrew bar that is way to close to home (1 mile). I got the extra fridge but its filled with that annoying food & soda... Now retrofiting the bar would be nice it's already plumbed/wet. Have to undo the shelves.

Hey Nut, once you go keg, you'll never go back! I keep some of those 20 oz EZ Cap bottles just in-case I decide to lose my mind and bottle some (and it hasn't happend in two years!). I have a friend that homebrews and will not keg. He's paranoid that it'll go too FAST!! He just doesn't understand...........

...........Oh yeah, I have been brewing for about a month now and it is very addictive. I'll be brewing my 3rd batch this weekend. Between my brew and visiting these forums every day, when i get home from work it seems like im craving a homebrew! Im excited to get some more brew bottled and get a taste of variety.
