Default Addicted To Brewing!

This has got to be the best hobby in the world! I try and brew 2 times a month so I'm never out of good beer. I brew 5 gal at a time and my x-tra fridge has 10 cases of 22's. My prob is I wan't to keep brewing as much as possible but don't have the room for bottles. I picked up a Cornelius Kegging system but havn't used it yet. Is ther a easy way to get started kegging ? Lame mans directions?Step by step? I have a 5 gal keg and all the parts to start just don't want to mess up my brew with to much co2. Any help? Cheers

Man....I wish I could keep beer around by only brewing 2 times a month! I need to do about 5 batches a month just to keep up. But I agree...this IS addictive!!!!

I've literally spent a small fortune on it. . . and I never seem to run out of things to buy.

Addicted to brewing? OK, so what's your point?

It's not "how much" it's "how often".

I drink almost every day. I lived in Germany for 9 years, so I always have beer with my meals when I am at home or eating out.

I still can't get used to going to Micky D's/Burger King, etc., and NOT having a beer with a burger like you can in the rest of the world....damned US laws.

Funny how we have such strict laws in the US and so many people with alcohol problems.

I also drink almost every day. Let's say I have half a litter at a dinner time, few more on weekends. Some times wife wants glass or two. Kids are not at the drinking age (yet). Rounding up to 5-7 litters a week. Sure you have friends over... Sounds like couple 5 gallon batches a month should be OK. But 5 batches a month, that's why I have asked.
