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?
The only thing more asinine than stupid rules is the enforcement of rules simply because they are the rules.

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.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"

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

Bottles, Party Pigs, Kegs out the side of frig in garage....Now a Sanyo small kegerator with two taps right in my computer room! Trash can rigged up for two taps on the go, I am a happy drinker.
If I had a nickel for every beer I drank....I would be retired already.

Emphasis on drank, sober since August 28 2011

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!!
