I know it's just like waiting for any other beer I've brewed, but something about the new setup makes it feel like I am back in October '08 waiting for my very first batch to carb in the bottles so I can try one. Anyone else experience something similar when making the switch to kegs?

Never bottled much, but I certainly remember the joy of trashing the 5L mini-keg system I had and going to cornies.

One plus on kegs: you can try a shot and not have to waste a whole bottle.

Don't try the keg! But do try the beer inside it.

Never did the bottle thing. I couldn't get myself to clean 40-50 bottles.... ARRG!

Went straight to keg, but you are right! That first pull/draw from the tap was as exciting as anything I've done! Like a 5yr old waiting for that X-Mass bike!!!!

Cheers and may your Keg provide you lots of suds!!
