Where there's a will there's a way! Just think of how many new homebrew addicts I will spawn from this one encounter, though. Out of 300 people there will be many that will appreciate and some that will have to create the "power of the brew".
Dang, I just thought of this: I should definately bottle up some of the good stuff just in case the kegs go dry! Maybe put some in champagne bottles for ourselves at the head table (I guess I'm greedy and manipulative LOL).

WOT, you managed to swing a better deal than me! I have a buddy that I've introduced to homebrewing and mentioned that "if we just had a kegging system, we would have it made." He said let's go get it! Since we live in Charlotte (where the ebrew store is located) we went over and picked up this same system. We went in 50/50 and the system stays at my house. I though that was a good deal until I read your scam. I'm VERY pleased with the system. The kegs were in excellent shape, with only a few ounces of soda in the bottom and very easy to clean. The were pressurized when we picked them up and have held pressure for a month now (including the one full of beer). I don't think there is a better deal anywhere than what Jess is offering.

That is good news! Don't worry, your scamming skills will improve with time, young grasshopper, feed your addiction Next time you go in to Alt. Beverage, tell Jess I said thanks for the time he spent on the phone helping me get started in this new endeavor. He seems like a real genuine guy and I wish him all the best. My name's Brian but I doubt he'll remember me.

And remember, don't drink up your last keg before the next one is under pressure

You're one hell of a horse trader! But 300 people??? You've got a LOT of beer to brew- those three corny kegs will never be enough. Three cornies roughly equals one half barrell. I had 300 people at my wedding we went through 2 1/2 half barrells. at least you'll enjoy all that brewing Have fun!

You'll need at least 3 times that number of 5gal cornies. Unless they are mostly wine drinkers. 3 cornies equals one 15gal beer keg (standard half barrel keg).

BTW, you can also rent a proper portable beer tap from a beverage supply place. That's what a lot of events held at halls use. Propbably a clip on model with 3 taps on it or three single tap clip ons. Just hook up to your beer lines. Nicer pour than a party tap and looks nicer too.

When's the wedding?

I was simply letting him know what the standard beer keg size from the liquor store was. Since one of his soda kegs is one third the size of the beer kegs his parents were thinking of or one sixth of a full barrel sized keg, if that's what the mega-swill was available in for $100.

Here's the deal:

We're also getting a keg of swill and another on reserve, PLUS my 3 homebrew 5 gal.'s. That way the pi$$ drinkers can swill away and/or drink on the HB. I plan on bottling up a case or three of "private reserve" stuff for the head table and the parents, since they are so generously accomodating my drinking habit nowadays. The wedding is at my grandparent's house in August, so I have some time to blow messing around with a batch or 2 to get it right. I figure I should start brewing in April - June to get 'em ready for August. Got a Red Ale, Amber Ale, and American Cream style set to go. Gonna fill up a keg before then (maybe a nut brown or amber) to drink on and see how it ages... Anyway, what my mom said was she dropped way too much money on beer at the hall for our wedding and this bar bill is going to be less anyway so what the heck. I wasn't going to argue with her

Yeah, and youu can return unopened beer kegs anyway. Get the half barrel (15g) ones or the poney keg 7.5g sized ones so you can return them without having to open a big keg and having it half full later.
Though that can be a good thing if it's a good microbrewed beer.
