I am still bottling, and the only reason I want to keg is so I can carbonate faster. The only reason I'd want to carb faster is if I am making an IPA or something similarly hop-aroma-centric. Other than that, I don't mind anything about bottling at all.

I think this has gotten off topic yes I agree the answer t a bottling question is not you should keg. If you explain why kegging would solve the problem and is the best solution to the problem you can say you should keg because......

thats the thing though, kegging is never the answer to a bottling problem.

You can force carb fast, but to me, just doesn't taste right! Still need to wait 2-3 weeks

Ive had the opposite experience. For some reason, my kegged batches seem to have better body and better head. And i've done both to a batch. My esb in botttles seemed thin, with less body. The half I keggged was so much better. I dont know why, but thats the experience ive had with kegging.
