For me it's bottling. But now I transfer to the keg, prime, gently stir, then draw off ten 500ml bottles and put them aside to mature...and the keg, well it doesn't get to mature too long!
Beer....the Duke of all Beverages.

Brew a good beer and people want it all, you calculate it will take 10 gallons to hand out enough, but you only have 4 gallons.

The hard part is telling people you don't have any more!

A runner up is bottling.

I do the same. A 5 Gallon outside and a one gallon next to the sink, both full of sanitiser. After I use something I rinse it, leave it in the bucket and just give it a quick rinse if I need it again or before I put it away. By the end of my brew I don't have that much to clean.
Have a beer on me.
