Default One step closer to kegging

I just picked up 2 cornies for $15 each. Just in time too, I have 5 gallons of apfelwein and 5 gallons of APA that I was going to have to bottle soon. Now I guess I have to finish my bar and kegerator this weekend... Wait for additional posts most likely involving me, unnecessary powertools, my blood, and lots of swearing...

Willie approves of my new acquisition...

Nice! You got your CO2 bottle, regulator, and all that jazz yet?

A friend of mine is a glassblower and he's getting me a rental tank from where he gets O2 for his torch, I got the rest of the setup on ebay, nice chrome tower and everything.

Awesome -- you are going to LOVE kegging. No more bottle scrubbing, no more secondaries (and the carboy washing that goes with it), and beer on tap!

But now you are going to want a lot more cornies.....

I have kegged 3 batches but only drank 1. The other 2 are still conditioning and will be ready soon. Kegging is awesome. I still use a secondary to make the beer as clear as possible. Instead of taking 2 hours to bottle it takes 15 min to keg I will post some picts of my old rusted fridge that I sanded and repainted. Enjoy the kegs! Also no more bottles for SWMBO to count to see how many you have had!

good deal. My LHBS has a second hand one for $100. Was going to buy that just to get me started whilst I looked around for cheaper ones. I am over bottling too!
