I'm by no means an expert, but I've been doing what you're describing (purging with CO2 and then storing) for my last few kegs. Its nice having something on reserve.

Good luck with the kegerator!

I just started a 10 gallon batch of this BIAB style. 26+ lbs of grain dry weighs a heck of a lot more wet. This is the most amount of grain I've used in a recipe, at least that I can recall, and it...

Aye, that's the truth, though in my case it serves the purpose of satisfying my BMC drinking friends (are they still actually called "friends" at that point), and it helps keep my beer cooler longer...

As others have mentioned, if you have any thoughts of kegging in the future, 6 kegs isn't all that many. I have 9 now, and its my goal to get and keep most of them full as much as possible.
