Default I love bottling

1 keg will never match the joy I get from so many beautiful bottles! I can't be the only one who loves bottling beer.

I missed that they legalized marijuana in Tennessee. Congratulations on your new freedoms.

I only do bottles. I have no interest in going the keg route. I agree, bottles are beautiful.

I haven't showered in three days. I've been packing things into a Uhaul truck for the last two, and I just finished putting in baseboard trim downstairs in our new remodel home after painting 1500 sq feet of walls, removing 500 sq feet of Rastafarian color themed carpet and putting down new laminate flooring. Now I get to do crown moulding and wiring so I can put my tv above my fireplace and play some much deserved video games.

tired. not poopy.

I like having bottles around so I can give them away. other than that I prefer to keg.

It's nice to have some bottles, but I hate bottling!
I also love pouring a draft beer and enjoying it. Something about out of the tap that makes it better to me.
I wish you lived near me. I would feed you beer and let you run the bottling for me since you enjoy it so much.
I've got some pumpkin ale that I'm going to bottle soon. Only because I think I'm going to be drinking the same pumpkin ale next year. I can't imagine pumpkin ale being something that I would want to drink on a regular basis.

Sorry about the carpet, hope you got a shower.

I like bottling so I can cellar beer. I'm looking forward to being able to have vertical tastings of my dubbel, biere de garde, etc.

I don't mind bottling. The simple repetitiveness is sorta relaxing.

I also don't mind it at all... I have a system, I get set up, and it's a mindless task that is rewarding and isn't really all that bad. Sort of a meditation time to reflect about whatever, sometimes beer, maybe work. It almost works to de-stress me.

That being said though, I also appreciate the simplicity and storage savings of my kegs...
