I have a pale ale on tap right now an it's very good. I know it's gonna kick any glass poured... But every time I go to pour myself a glass I keep saying "come on baby just one more full glass" (I have another 6 gallons of this same pale ale fermenting but won't be rdy for about 20 days)

I have another beer lined up an rdy to be hooked up, but there's something about this pale ale that is just really nice....


Anyone else share this problem?

Some kegs (of good tasting beer, not just the crap) seem to last forever and others kick about 2 weeks too soon. I don't understand it but I'm sure there is a greater force at work.

I had a similar problem once, "knew' a keg was going to kick any glass now and had another keg I was really wanting to tap. So one night I thought I'd just finish the last couple of glasses in the keg and get then new one on for the next day... about 2.5 litres later I went to bed still not done with the keg. next night I went for a glass and you guessed it only got 1/4 before it kicked!

Yup. And some weeks it's like Keg Roulette at my place: I once had five out of six kegs running on fumes and honest to gawd it got nerve wracking

Cheers!

Had that happen with my breakfast stout on Friday. Was filling a growler for a birthday party I was going to and thought to myself "I hope the keg does not kick until after I fill this growler" Growler filled, then I went to pour myself a mug. Got less than an inch in the glass and then nothing but foam and CO2. I won that round. Keeping reserve kegs in the wings make it better though.
