I feel like it builds character to have to bottle before you keg. My friends that start brewing, I tell them that they should start off bottling. I did it and i want them to suffer too

I bottled, then kegged, now back to bottling. No interest in kegging anymore. Bottling can impart flavors that are not possible with kegs.

Especially if you carb naturally; Like the keg is a big bottle?

I started off kegging (less room for equipment, less hassle, etc)... Glad I did!
