I have my latest Blue Moon Extract clone at the ready and I am Jonesin' to try it! But the GD IPA just WON'T die! It seems like a bottomless keg! It might be time to convert to a keezer. This 2 keg capacity is just not working for me!

It will die when you least expect it. It'll also be the one time you really really want that IPA.

Then your other keg will die at exactly the same time for some reason. Then you'll be annoyed.

+1 Ride the wave. Life's too short to rush a keg.

I find that my IPA lasts longer as well. It's such a high flavor, high ABV beer that I find I usually only drink 1 per session and follow it with something lighter.

Paulster's right too...It'll kick right when you're really craving one.

Try having 2 kegs, and only one tap....That way if one of your beers in your pipeline screws up, you have to wait until it's done to have any of it. No fun.

Paulster is right on. Enjoy that IPA. There will be kegs that kick out just when you least expect it and you'll be sad. The Wit will last for a while. Keep it cold if you can.

There is always the keg in the kitchen trash can trick. Put the keg in the trash can, add ice, and after a few hours it's cold. And picnic tap and enjoy! I've even seen people cut a keg-sized opening in the top of a cooler so the ice lasts longer.

Try having 3 kegs and only 2 taps!

No wait, that's better, not worse...
