I've got five, because it takes time to buy fifteen without shelling out a bunch of cash all at once.

I'd like to pick up a few more and use them for keg carbing. I brew much faster than I can drink (I'm actually throwing a ball lock adapter on our kegerator at work so I can bring in my excess homebrew). I've had trouble getting good carbonation dumping sugar right into the kegs and carbing at room temperature - need to dial that in before I commit more kegs to the process.
I just counted and I have 15. I think they're copulating - must be all the beer.

I have 6 but I want more but they are too much. I would love to use a few as secondaries to age batches. With that in mind what are the best deals on kegs I might even start doing pin lock at this point.

10. They are addictive. Though 1 is a POS that never seals. I am considering getting the thicker gaskets for it though to see if it helps. Stupid lid presses down 1/2-1 inch when closed. Managed to get it to seal once with >30PSI on it.

Got spares to keep my pipeline going. Keg collection is addictive though. It does seem best to have at least 1 more than you have taps for, just to keep the pipeline going.

I have 6 five gallon and a single stackable 2.5 gallon from Adventures in Homebrewing. I bought my 5 gals from the eBay seller mentioned earlier. I'm not kegging yet, but know I will. I've read some recommend to have twice as many as you need. When I started 6 months ago, I went ahead and tried to buy a few from the eBay seller. I was wanting ten as I planned on having a 5 tap kegerator, but I think the 6 I have now will be fine. I would actually like to have more of the stackable 2.5s. I think 4-5 more of the stackables should be plenty for my keezer. Then I could just use the 5 gallons for house beers, lagering, and aging.

I think I have around 10. I do mostly lagers. I have 5 or 6 lagering, a few on tap, one with starsan and a couple empty. I need to remedy that.
