Default Anyone ever drink a beer hard to kill a keg?

I'm hitting my Rye IPA hard right now to make room for a new English Brown Ale. The latter is full of promise. But my keezer is full. So, either the kiddies lose their root beer or I kick this IPA which is almost floating anyway.

I think I'm pushing too hard. I'm a bit toasted right now. GD thing won't kick. Gonna be a long night.

All the time. Usually I'll bottle some up quick with the bowie bottler. That way I'll enjoy a couple a few weeks down the road.

I usually only put sessions in kegs so I can push hard to get it ready for the next session. that & pulling a handle is way too easy.

Downing the last 1/2 of a stout and an APA to make room right now, might get some freinds over to help. CHEERS

This is why I think kegging would be bad move for me. Too easy to pull the handle...

ohhhh, but it's way faster than bottling every batch. that's why I do both.
