I don't understand the purpose of the line, "I don't need to drink to
have fun." Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and
sticks when they've invented the lighter?

Keep going untill you get to 88 mph, then the keg will go back in time and refill itself.

And if it doesn't, well you gave it your best and at least it will be empty, awaiting more brew.

Good luck!

Cdub, I heartily wish you success in your quest! I was in this same predicament a few short weeks prior.

Know this, your keg is a wily and resilient bastard! He will not waiver from his purpose. Nor will he resign his duty before his life blood runneth out.

The answer lies not in your stars but in yourself.

Endeavour to persevere, my friend!

Man I never try to drain my kegs cuz they drain so fast!! Do you guys bottle off of every keg for later sampling or do you just drain them and leave them to memory?

I have at least one beer left from my last 3 or 4 kegs. Usually when I get close to the bottom I bottle whats left, and try to make the last few last awhile.

I already have one of these bottled in the fridge, so I'm just goin for it

number 5.... no end in sight

The keg does not know win or lose, joy or sorrow. It does not understand goals or aspirations. It may well not even know that it has an adversary.

Like rainfall, it only knows to continue until it is no more.

It knows yes or no, spew or spit.

The outcome is entirely up to you.
