So, 2 weeks ago I kegged a traditional bock and last week Saturday kegged the Deception Stout. I also had a 5 liter mini keg of Spaten, just to have a "light" beer available. Tonight all of my kegs are empty..... FML..


~having a big brew fest tomorrow~

Whoa, you killed the pipeline. What did you do, invite the whole town over for a beer?

I am scared that I am going to have the same situation when I get home from my holiday.

The only two kegs of beer I had left after Christmas were in the beer fridge when we left and my brother in law has been house sitting for us for the last two weeks.

It could be a dry few weeks.....😞

You need to invest in a lock on your fridge

You just need to brew more often my pipeline gets hurt but I always have some fresh brews bottled, fermenting and contidioning. I brew every week :P need to do some heavy drinking if a want to keep brewing every week for the next couple of months. Well itīs a hard job but someone has to do it

Yeah, I was thinking these would have lasted a bit longer than 2 weeks, was I wrong.. Right now I only have a vanilla porter in the fermenter.

I have pretty decent pipeline, but I have got in the habit of pulling off a sixer of each keg as soon as it is carbed. I stash these and use them as an insurance policy in case I suddenly find all six kegs dead. I like to think of the stashed beer as my highlight reel.

Yeah, to keep my pipeline full, I generally brew 2 batches each month. Since most of my beers are 8% and higher, I don't drink them too fast.

I was brewing 4 times a month since I wanted to do some longer aging beers but gave up on that since a litre of 13% stout in a swing top (which is how I store beers I want to age) is a lot of beer.

My setup is like this:

4 Kegs on tap (1 being soda for my GF)
2 Kegs in the cellar usually maturing beers like my 13% oaked stout
4 Carboys full (I have 4 full right now..may do a 5th one next week)

Once you have 60 gallons of beer at any given time in your house, you never run out.

I hear you, my wife and I had some friends up for the weekend. It ended with my keg of Apfelwien, English pale, and most of my graff.

Dang luckily I have an apa, ipa, coffee porter, and a huge ris in the pipeline.

The only reason I broke the pipeline was because I decommissioned my kit to modify it into a 2 tier setup that has ended up taking a lot longer to complete than I expected.
