I just came home from work and pulled a pint of my belgin pumpkin ale I am serving on Beer Gas with a stout faucet.

Half way through the pour and the keg kicked... I wish I had those first several pints that I kept trying thinking man I screwed this up, it doesn't taste right.

So my question is when do you stop being so sad when your brew is gone?

This is only my second AG and 5th brew all together the first 3 being kits.

What will keep me going and get me very excited is my Hennipin clone that is ready to go into the keg!

Just have another tap going and another keg carbed in your pipeline to swap with the empty one.

You'll never be sad again.

Only sad for the 20 minutes it takes me to clean the lines and hookup another keg.

Tonight I'm drinking the last bottle of my Bell's 2 Hearted clone that I brewed in May.
The good news is I have a new batch of it sitting in the keg, waiting for me to pull the handle.

So, to answer your question..., 2 minutes after I finish the bottle.

I should have a fridge big enough for two kegs soon. Right now I only can have one on tap and there is no place for me to cool one down before hand.

Even still it is sad when a good batch is done even if I have a better on waiting for me.

I just hold a wake for the beer, with more beer, and all is well.

As was already stated, only as long as it takes to hook up another keg.

You clean the lines for each new keg?

However long it takes to drink enough to forget the one that just kicked!

I like this one, and this will be my new tradition.

This time I had a Zombie wake and brought my first AG brew back from the dead for a remembrance pint. I found a growler behind the keg that just kicked.
