Default I kegged it!

Midwest Supplies sent me this today:

my http://www.midwestsupplies.com/brew-...-co2-tank.html

It arrived in 72 hours from purchase. I have already put BeirMuncher's Nierra Sevada in one keg after 3 weeks primary. I sealed, set co2 to 30 psi, layed keg on side and gently shake for 1 minute. Put keg in fridge for 2 hours on 30 psi, purged, set to 10 psi and Amazing!

Thank you homebrewtalk!

My wife was home all day while I was at work. I think the keg is less full...

You kicked the keg in only two days. You will never know how good it would have been after 4-6 weeks of cold conditioning. There are advantages to letting it age a little!

Lol, good job with the first one, now get to another! You don't realize how fast that keg will go when all you have to do it open the tap and pour, lol

Just tap my second keg after 1 week of being in the fridge. Its a Janet's Brown recipe. The beer is very clear and quite tasty!

Congrats! I have a 3-faucet kegerator and can't seem to keep 3 kegs on tap, my wife and I kill them too quick. I think Im going to start doing 10 gallon batches LOL. I doubt we'd be enjoying the hobby quite as much if we were having to deal with all those damned bottles.
