Just wanted to take a moment and say thanks to everyone that helped me get the kegerator set up..That being said here is the back story..
Wife got me the Mr. Beer for xmas.. instantly pulled it out and made the pale ale extract it came with.. subbed out some of the "activator" for a cup of clover honey and stuck it in to ferment.. just bottled a week ago and tasted yesterday.. I have to say for my first batch im not impressed, but it is drinkable (tastes suspiciously like Miller High Life). I only bottled 3 bottles because I bottled a little prematurely so I left the rest in the fermenter.
A couple days ago I found a deal on CL for a commercial kegerator from a bar that just closed down.. Got a screaming deal on it so I picked it up instead of the starter kit I had been looking at.. While I was at the LHBS picking up a CO2 tank and regulator for the kegerator I noticed they had the corny keg conversion stuff and some kegs so I picked one up and I also picked up the latest edition of "How to Brew". Stopped by the liquor store and picked up a 1/6 keg of Shipyard and a 1/6 keg of Sea Dog.. Now I have beer running all the time and three open taps
I still need to run all of the tubing for the corny keg setup today and eventually I would like to be running my right tower with three homebrew kegs and the left tower with two commercial kegs..
Getting past the point though.. first question is, I am thinking about kegging what is left of the Mr. Beer kit and enjoying the "champagne of beers".. any worries other than amount of CO2 used to force keg only 1.5 gallons in a 5 gallon corny keg?
Last question: I am looking at this starter kit from Williams:
Is it truly the best deal around right now?? I dont mind paying for the bottling equipment that comes with this since Im sure I will be bottling from the keg some to give to friends and take to meetings and things.. Thanks for all the help and HBT IS THE BEST!!!
