Default So how many corny kegs exactly is too many?

So I'm lucky enough to have a connection to get corny kegs. They come though pretty beat up but a little tlc and some new gaskets and they are just fine for my homebrew! The thing is, I think I may be going overboardwith them. I have 10, not all full of course. So I was wondering how many do you guys have?

If you think you have too many I know of a good home that you can send some to...

Too many is all relative... Can you reasonably expect to have them all full within 6 months? Or at least be using them within 6 months? Do you have enough room to store them? Is you home starting to look like you're hoarding brewing equipment?

Right now, I have just one corny keg, but I also have 4 1/6 barrel Sanke kegs. All of mine are used for aging and fermenting, since I don't have a keezer or CO2 setup yet...

I have 8.. thinking about getting 4 more, although all 8 of mine are currently empty so I'm not sure what my logic is going to be for that purchase.

I doubt that in the next 6 months they would all be used. The most that I've had filled at once was 7. 3 on tap and 4 ageing. I am running out of space but my wife is not complaining. I have a hard time letting go of things.

Thats my logic also. The sad thing is that if the guy comes back with more, I'd probably buy those too!
