I always thought you keggers were crazy...
 
for having so many freaking kegs around. That was completely foreign to me as some who was bottling.

Now that I have kicked my first two kegs, have 3 brews at various stages of readiness and grain on the way for 3 more brews... the heavens have opened and I have seen the light.

I ordered 4 more cornys today and now I'm wishing I would have made it 8.

BM's stash of 15+ kegs now makes perfect sense to me (although his ugly junk does not :p ).

I'm happy with 8 kegs and two serving faucets. Some of the guys with like 4+ faucet keggerators may benefit from a few more. Aged beer tastes better, plain and simple.

I have 6. That will have to do me for now due to money and space.
I wish I could pick them up for $25 each.

I am up to five cornies under one serving tap and feel close. I'll get _at least_ four more when I add a second tap to my system. Maybe ten more.

BM has whipped out his ugly junk for all the world to see... it's no secret.

Yeh... thats the idea... keep em filled so you always have the good stuff on tap. Well, I prefer not to brew in the summer due to heat - so I kinda use the reserves to get through june/july/august without having to brew.

I have 4 (only a 2 keg kegerator) and at $55CAD a piece I can't afford more for a while. I have a hard time keeping them filled too. As soon as I float one I pretty much have to brew immediately to refill it.

anticipate... brew early and try to time kicking a keg. Even if you go long its not gonna hurt to have your brew in secondary for 3-4 weeks.
