Default I friggin' love keggin!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry total newb comment, but I finally get it.

I tested with a Root Beer for the kids, better to blow a $10 soda than a $40 beer. But everything went exactly as planned. I will qualify that by saying I read a lot before jumping into something new. The sticky's, particularly Bobby M's, are excellent. Took a bit of time to read all 22 pages but at least 50% was worth it.

If you are on the fence like I was for a long time, pull a Nike and "Just Do It"! Took me shearing off the spigot on the counter with 5 gallons in the bucket to take the plunge. I now have 2.5-3 gallons stout and it is still sticky between the slats of the hardwood flooirng where the other half fell.

Just remember to toss out all the rubber pieces and hoses used with the root beer. You'll never get the smell and taste out, and your beer will taste like root beer.

I LOVE my kegerator! It completed my life the first time I pulled the handle and beer flowed out cool,crisp, and carbed. That day falls right behind the day my daughter was born in level of importance. So it is day number two in the best days of my life. Well tied for number two. The day my divorce was final is up there as well. Screw it. It was a great flipping day, you know what I am trying to say.

Wait until you get your first leak that drains the entire CO2 tank, or when you have 4 kegs waiting to be cleaned all at once, or when you realize there are numerous different styles of kegs and parts don't match or mix between them....etc etc.

Kegging is a godsend and I definitely could never survive without it now.
