Default Kegged beer goes FAST!

Holy crap! I just kegged my 1st batch 2.5 weeks ago. I picked up my keg yesterday and is REALLY light. Its almost kicked!

I've never consumed a 5 gal batch in this little time. Maybe its becuase its a session beer, maybe because I had some pals over for a brew day, but DANG it went fast.

That is all!

That's what happens to me every time I brew my favorite style, gone in a flash.

I was kicking a keg every 6 days not too long ago. Between me, the wife and friends, I was flying through it. Lately I have been monitoring my intake a little better and can almost make a keg last 2 weeks. Closer to 10 days probably. 64 oz per day flowing out of the kegerator really isn't all that much.

I have decided to keep plenty of my favorite affordable commercial beer on hand to help assist in preventing this. Unfortunately it only seems to be preventing me from drinking mass quantities of the home brew & does nothing to prevent the wife & friends from consuming....doh.

I figured that out as well. I figured it was probably because when I pour from a keg I use a pint glass and pretty much fill it, where as a 12 ounce bottle of beer is just that. Doing some simple math I learned I was getting 40ish pints from the kegerator vs 52ish bottles. Its the same amount of beer, just served at different volumes.

My pipeline got destroyed at our superbowl party. I have three batches in primary's that won't be ready for 2-3 more weeks and none in a serving kegs. Next year I must prepare better.

You and me both. I went from three almost full kegs to three 1/4 full kegs with a stout sitting in primary. Might have to buy some microbrews while I replenish the supplies.

Wedding killed my pipeline. I was too busy to brew for a while but still pulling off 1-2 beers a night. Ive currently got 2 in 2ndary; 1 in primary - trying to get the pipeline back in order.

Yup....two primaries isn't doing it for me. Just when I think i'm caught up I have three empty kegs. I just picked up a third primary, I hope this will help keep my pipeline going!!!
