for having so many freaking kegs around. That was completely foreign to me as some who was bottling.

Now that I have kicked my first two kegs, have 3 brews at various stages of readiness and grain on the way for 3 more brews... the heavens have opened and I have seen the light.

I ordered 4 more cornys today and now I'm wishing I would have made it 8.

BM's stash of 15+ kegs now makes perfect sense to me (although his ugly junk does not ).

I'm happy with 8 kegs and two serving faucets. Some of the guys with like 4+ faucet keggerators may benefit from a few more. Aged beer tastes better, plain and simple.

I have 6. That will have to do me for now due to money and space.
I wish I could pick them up for $25 each.

I am up to five cornies under one serving tap and feel close. I'll get _at least_ four more when I add a second tap to my system. Maybe ten more.

Yeh... thats the idea... keep em filled so you always have the good stuff on tap. Well, I prefer not to brew in the summer due to heat - so I kinda use the reserves to get through june/july/august without having to brew.

I have 4 (only a 2 keg kegerator) and at $55CAD a piece I can't afford more for a while. I have a hard time keeping them filled too. As soon as I float one I pretty much have to brew immediately to refill it.

anticipate... brew early and try to time kicking a keg. Even if you go long its not gonna hurt to have your brew in secondary for 3-4 weeks.
