Just tapped my keg of dry stout (on Tuesday) and my keg of marzen (tonight). My first kegs ever! Both beers are fantastic. Made a black and tan with them tonight. Very tasty!

Nice! I will be doing the same thing in the next few days. I can't wait to pour from the kegs for the first time.

The black and tan looks delicious.

nothing like having a few kegs on tap. you get used to having good beer whenever you want it, instead of s.o.s. (sh@@ off the shelf, bmc, whatever you want to call it). drinking a great vanilla porter right now, aged 4 months... awesome stuff ... congrats on joining us

you are correct, elpenoso. I guess I've had so few B&T that I didn't realize it. Guess I'll have to pour one for breakfast!

It depends on the FG of the beer. When I did a black and tan, my IIPA was on the bottom and the stout was on the top. By the way, an IIPA and stout is a good combo, too!

Congrats on the keg system.
