Well, I really enjoy my new keg setup a little too much. Pouring large pints of beer is way easier than cracking open bottles. There should be a warning for us noobs to be careful with all that power! (Hangover)

Yea I used to keep my tops in my pocket -- once I started jingling while walking I knew I had enough. It's hard to count when you have a bottom-less glass

Yep, like everything else though, the novelty will wear off.........and a keg will start lasting more than a week.

I have to agree. I went through my first keg in a week by myself. Now, they are lasting a month or more. Building a pipeline helps mask the addiction too.....since I can replace a keg and nobody be the wiser to how much is actually gone!

Keg #2: Empty :(
Kegs 3-5: Empty :(

Ferment #1: Empty :(
Ferment #2: Empty :(
