Congrats......... Since I moved to kegs I have not looked back. Knocks a lot of work and time out of beer brewing. It is much more enjoyable to brew a beer and know I dont have to clean,scrub & sanitize 52 bottles + caps+ buy priming sugar and wait three weeks or longer to drink my beer. I hope you enjoy your purchase.

Oddly, for me, the advantage to kegging turned out not to be the labor savings at bottling time, but at drinking time. Drawing a beer on tap is much better than dealing with opening, pouring, rinsing, and putting away a bottle just to have a beer.

I forgot to mention the chores to get myself out of the doghouse for letting the bottles pile up by the sink...

You'll never look back. I still sometimes bottle a few of certain batches that I want to age a long time to see how they taste but the time I've saved is way worth the expense of me getting a kegerator and 7 corny kegs.

What set up did you get? Have recently started brewing, but have been toying with the idea of building my own kegerator and putting together my own system.
