I have about eleven 3 gallon, two 2.5 gallon and three 5 gallon corny kegs. My brew fridge holds four 2.5 or 3 gallon kegs at a time, with three of them being on tap. I also have a setup in the basement for carbonating up to five kegs (at ambient temps, which is in the upper 40's to low 50's this time of year).

I have a couple of bigger brews in two of the 5 gallon kegs, carbonating up. I'm planning on bottling some of those batches at some point. Until then, they'll just sit on the gas feed.

^^^ "Nice doggy! Yup, that's a good dog. Please don't eat me!"



I have fourteen 5 gallon ball locks. I keep six brews on tap at all times in the keezer, cold condition and carb another four kegs in one of the brew fridges to keep the pipeline full, and cellar the other four as they wait their turns.

Usually I have carboys waiting on kegs, but right now I have one empty keg.
And the flu...

Cheers!

33 total. 1 - 3 gallon, 1 - 10 gallon and the rest are 5 gallons. All have something in them; beer, cider or soda. Some are lagers, some are Belgians aging. As I expanded brewing I kept buying kegs. I have 16 kegs in the keezers, the rest are waiting for a spot or are aging.
