I considered buying a keg but realized my beer would sit in it, hot, uncarbed, and unextractable

Lol at the OP. It's not that I can't afford to keg, its that my liver would never hold up. For some unknown reason the decision to open another bottle weighs heavier on my conscience than pulling the tap.

before brewing my own most of the craft brews I bought came in bombers so I started saving them. expensive yes but over time I ended up with over 10 cases of bombers. I use to bottle 25 gallon batches (split between a friend or two) and I couldn't imagine doing that with shortys

HA, awesome post!

Yup, yup. I'm poor and brewing the cheapest way I know how. I figure I'm better off spending money on quality ingredients for now.

But hey, you're right. If we jumped right into kegging and got super-awesome AG setups, how could we *truly* appreciate it without having first been bottling boobs and stove top suckers.

I don't consider us suckers at all! We are the grass roots,common clay of brewland. I think one of the reasons folks keg is that it's cool to pull your own tap,like in a bar/pub/whatever. I have such a comfortable,easy within reach bottling day setup,that I'm actually beginning to enjoy it. (kinda sounds like Max Rougitanski,doesn't it?) Besides that,I get a lot of bottles of ale to case up. Plenty of good brew to pull some for the fridge. It's also interesting that I've got bottles from around the globe. Different shades of amber,brown,& the like. Different shapes as well...all give an interesting view of my brews. Not so with a keg. Besides valuing patience over more instant gratification. But that's me...

Kegging is also a real pain with beersmith. I mean, all the default aging periods are 30 days now, and every time I make a batch I have to go in and edit it to 1 day.

It just couldn't be more bothersome.
