I have 4 right now. I can fit 3 in the keezer, but I only have two gas lines.

I need 1 more corny, that will be specifically for mead use. sparkling melomels are the shiz-nit. and since I won't drink tons of mead in one sitting, I won't mind switching the QD over to dispensing a few mugs...for now.

I've got 6 or 7 floating around the apartment and I love it.

Ironically though, I skipped bottling directly and I kind of like it (the one time I've done it). I'll be using a BMBF from now on though, so forget my blasphemy.


on keggers.

I'm still pretty new to kegging (only 3-4 months now) so I'm still getting the hang of that. Speaking of which I have an oatmeal stout experiment to keg tonight.

I'm in the process of building a big kegerator now that will have 5 kegs on tap and 5 more in cold storage. So, I picked up 4 more cornies and now have 21. I use one to keep star san in and the other 20 will hold 10 batches of beer.

I just drove down to a soda distributor and picked up 20 kegs for the local club. So right now I have 37 kegs in the house. 4 of those are mine and 16 will disappear.

I have 21 5's a 10 and 2 3's
I have 4 that are out of commision and need to be gone over and super cleaned. The rest are in the rotation, I find my self brewing more than I can drink and the only way to give it away is to bottle it and thats a PITA

I have a makeshift kegerator with 3 kegs and two taps right now, want to go get a big chest freezer and set it up with 4 or 5 taps. It's so much easier than bottling.
