I wouldn't want to cut down on your time as a 'brewer', but you can probably keg 10 gallons in less than a half hour.

I guess I can try the extremely long tubing approach. Wonder how I can make 45 miles of a tube from a keg to my sisters house.....hmmmm.

I have been brewing for close to a year now and have bottled close to 10 batches so far. I just ordered my keg setup a few weeks ago and let me tell ya, I am relieved that I won't have to clean/sanitize all those bottles anymore. I will still do some bottling here and there for beers that need aging but the majority of beers that i brew are styles like APA's, IPA's ect.. that don't require a long aging period so they will be kegged.

After cleaning/de-labeling recycled bottles,all that needs to be done is blast'em clean in the sink after drinking,then hang'em on the bottle tree to dry before storing away in closed boxes.
Then on bottling day,a vinitor half full of star-san get's them ready for filling again. No sweat at all.

One bottle at a time:

After the bottles are delabeled it goes quicker. For me to sanitize (they are already clean) fill and cap 50 bottles it takes 2 hours or less. I like the individual bottle portions. So at this point I do not see myself kegging.

I also recommend Sam Adams commercial beer because A: I like the flavor - B: the labels come off easily.

cheers, Mike

I started bottling all my beers then I bought a keg system. After a couple of kegged beers, I went back to bottling. Beer in bottles is more portable for me plus if I had a keg on tap in my house I don't think I would get anything done.

Good points I agree with. And the labels on Paulaner (Germany) come off several times faster than even SA's in some PBW! From setting up my bottling station,bottling,to clean up,takes about an hour,hour & a half. I fill bottles on top of my 12 pack cooler covered with a dish towel on my right. As is the bottling bucket/hose/wand set up. A squat,round table about 34" diameter in front of me to bottle/cap on,with a small round pot holder to keep bottles from sliding while capping.
I stop to cap every ten bottles or so,with the bottling wand propped up in a bottle instead of turning off the spigot. Less air in the line that way. Caps in a small glass bowl of star-san.
Bottle tree with sanitized bottles on a wooden chair to my left. Box for bottled beers on the floor in front of that. No reaching,stooping,etc. Just sit down,& bottle away. I gotta get a video of this soon...
