I brewed my favorite beer which is an Oktoberfest and was optimistic that I would wait till October to tap the keg. With three kegs I don't run out of good homebrew on tap but I guess I'll never know what the traditional lagering of this beer will be. I've read that it's supposed to be even better but unless I get more kegs or drink less I may never know.

Damn..... I knew it wasn't 3, and the 10 I have are not enough either........ was kind of thinking of ordering 4 more to "solve" my problems - but apparently 14 is not enough either!

Tho shall let the beer age...



Put it in the corner, pack a ton of crap around it and wait. That is how I do it with my Belgians. If its easy to get to, well you know the rest.

8 kegs here. Right now my limiting factor is keezer size. If I had a bigger one I could easily keep 20 filled.
