Hey guys im building my first kegerator. Thinkin bout puttin 2 taps on it. I have room inside for 6 cornies and my co2 tho. Can i carb kegs and store them until a tap is freed up. Not real sure how long the beer will keep. Any suggestions. Keep in mind i havnt kegged yet and truly appreciate any guidance given. Thanks

A manifold and six gas lines should work fine for you. If you want different pressures you'll want a few smaller manifolds on secondary regulators.

The beer will keep for as long as you have it on co2!!

Hoppy beers and lighter beers like Pilsners might start to lose their goodness after 6 months or so...but good luck on keeping a keg in the kegerator that long!!

As long as your system is leak free and you purge all the oxygen from your kegs your beers will keep virtually indefinitely.
