Default How many kegs do you own?

How often do you get to fill them up?

Keezer or kegerator?

I have 8 5 gal and 1 3 gal. Fridge has 3 taps...may add a 4th for the 3 gal that will fit in there as well on the back "hump" next to the 20 lb CO2 tank. But the 4th tap on the manifold is what I use for the beer gun....oh well. 3 kegs are currently empty but 2 batches are in fermenters. I've never been able to get them all full.....I still bottle some beers.

9.
Right now, I have in them:
1. English Style IPA
2. Nut Brown Ale
3. Captain Hooked on Bitters (ESB) (Red Hook ESB clone)
4. Blue Balls (Blue Moon Clone)
5. Vienna SMaSH
6. Root Beer
across a keezer and upright converted refrigerator
7. Star San
8, 9 waiting for next brews - #8 about to be used to condition/dry hop a Sierra Nevada Celebration clone.

Sometimes when they are getting close to empty I will just bottle the rest as I am afraid I will run out of kegs/space to keep them cold.

none. The funds don't allow that much at the moment, but it is on the list.

Started in July an have done extract, partial mash and all grain. Just got 2 ten gallon ss pots. Craigslist buy, extra heavy duty ones, $100 for both. Have ordered valves, sight glass & thermometer.

4 kegs and I fill appx every 4 weeks 1 keg so if I brew once a week or so they stay regularly filled. And I have a 7.2 cf keezer I made using a build right here on hbt.
