I can fit all seven in the kegerator, so I need about three more for turnaround, warm conditioning, aging purposes. And I still bottle about every fifth batch.

I've been doing 12 gallon batches, bottling 1ish gallon and kegging 10. Let's me have beer when I let my pipeline dry out.

I have 11. 8 true ball locks, 3 pin locks that have been converted (though in hindsight, I didn't need to do that). I can serve 3 at a time, as long as one is one of the pinlocks. I can carb and condition another 5 in the chest freezer. I tend to bottle high ABV stuff, as it sits way too long on tap. Beers on tap are generally 1.070 and less. Helps with the turnover. And one tap is pretty much dedicated to being our house pale.

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.
