Call it a phase or whatever, or at least I hope it is... But my last 2 batches are getting on my nerves right now.

I kegged my DC raspberry stout a couple of weeks ago and tapped it today to see how it tasted.

Tonight, I kegged my AHS Holiday ale after it had been in the primary for a month.

The DC stout was rather tasty but could use some more time to age, but definitely not a daily drinker (the jury is still out on this one) At any rate, the sweet cloying smell of the reminants of my DC stout in the glass, and the sweet spicy cloying smell of the holiday ale just rubbed me the wrong way tonight.
Maybe its the reminants of this flu/cold **** and feeling like ass in general. But these beers just pissed me off tonight. Im gonna drink a Boddingtons now.

I'm fighting something off too. My home brew is pissing me off also. I was blaming the way I feel on my home brew. I'm drinking scotch and water tonight.

For me, those kinda beers are perfect candidates for 3 gallon batches....if I really dig 'em and they get zapped quick, I'll just brew it again.

I agree smaller batches might be a good idea. If you are kegging and making something other than a session beer, it might be worth bottling that batch. No need to tie up a keg. Unless you love stout and are into it as a daily drink.

I would hate to have a big raspberry porter or a holiday ale in a keg come spring. To me, an October Pumpkin Ale is a prime candidate for bottling.

If this bothers you get a blichman beer gun, some bottles and empty that sucker when you get tired of knocking them back.

Im thinking that the beer gun (or other suitable alternative) might have to be whats on the buy list next. I just recently got into kegging cause its something new and cool and blah blah blah...

With that comes the fact that you now have 5 gallons... 5 WHOLE gallons... 5 WHOLE GALLONS that will sit there and take up space until you drink it.

Noone told me that kegging would have this downside to it damn it!

If your beer is making you angry you might as well switch to whiskey and really get your crank on.

The beverage of choice for murderers and sports writers the world over.

Whiskey, it's not just for breadfast anymore.
