OK I had the same problem about making my kegs singlehandedly disappear. But if you look at it this way, it's 53 12oz. beers Right? But it's only 40 pints if you sucked every drop out of your secondary so lets call it 37 pints. Thats really not that bad. I have a couple of pints a night and lose a growler or two to neighbors. My kegs go in less than 2 weeks by myself. So no worries.....

or maybe Da Nile really isn't a river in egypt... Ah the hell w/ Egyptians!!!

I have yet to meet an alcoholic brewer. It's too damn much work

I do find myself drinking a lot more in general..I mean it's so easy when you always have beer on hand.

That's it in a nut shell. Empty bottles are both an indicator of consumption and an inventory control device. Without the empties to wash and sterilize, I forget how many I've had over the course of an evening., Now was I on my third or fourth pint???????????

Lightweight. Kegs can be an inventory control device too.

All kidding aside, I'd like to come up with a device that allows me to measure volume without opening the fridge. A scale with a remote display would be the most convenient but the most expensive. What other parameter could we measure that will give us an indication of remaining volume? Can't think of one offhand now, but that may have something to do with ethanol in my blood. No work tomorrow!

I don't drink near as many beers since I bought 24 oz glasses! I only drink half as many beers as I used to!

I found that since I started brewing, I buy far less beer in the store. Therefore, my consumption has gone down, right? Don't know how the kegging will effect my consumption, as my Sanyo is sitting bare and my kegging equipment won't be here until next week.
I definitely don't brew enough, though. I am only averaging 6 batches per year...er...well...6 batches so far this year anyway.
