hey, that is an awesome thread. (based on other builds of course)

One bottle vs. Fifty. Can't argue with math IMO. I'll never bottle again.

I always make 6 to 61/2 gal. batches so I can keg 5 and bottle the rest. Works for me.

thanks for all of the helpful replies everyone. I called keg connection and have a qoute coming my way for a custom system. And now that I'm moving forward with it, I'm pretty excited about it. I'll have to update this post with the build when it's done.

UPDATE-

After much debate and even more money spent, the keezer is just about done. I asked before if kegging was worth it, and even though I've only just racked into my first keg, it wad without a doubt way easier, and way faster. It seems so simple now, but no one explained it this way to someone who still bottles.

Kegging to a bottler means being done at the same time when you rack to the bottling bucket. When that seemingly obvious fact finally clicked at 4am last night (had to keg the first brew) I suddenly got it. I'm still learning the kegging process, but so far, it's great. Thanks for the pushes.

And here she is, 3 tap system (left a hole for the fourth when I decide to add it). The collar looks painted brown due to the gel stain covering a little too well. Oh well, it still looks good where it sits and it seems to have a good seal.

650 bucks. If you shop around Nd wAit for void deals you can get legging for a lot less. I probably son 150 initially for 1 Keg, used fridge q s co2 tank and a regulator and a picnic tap. I have since expanded to two kegs on a tower.
