I must be a wierdo, I bottle

The one advantage to bottling I can see over kegging besides the intial start up costs of is that I dont have to go out and get another fridge to add to the 2 I already have. I pop a case worth on brew into my fridge in the basement and refill as needed just the same as I do with the soda I keep in that fridge. Bottling is kind of a pita but I'm cheep and can deal with the extra time to bottle.

I bottle. I know a fellow homebrewer that kegs, and insists that I need to keg in order to improve the quality of my beer. I think he's delusional. I believe that there are benefits to bottling and benefits to kegging. But the only kegged beer that I've ever tried that was noticeably "better" than my bottled stuff was the cask conditioned ales I drank in London.

Yeah bottling is a lot of work, but its hard to give a keg as a gift. Its insane to lug a keg to a party where there's just a few people. With bottles, I can package my beer to go, and give a sixer or twelver as a gift.

I've been thinking of getting a mini-keg system so I can cask condition and keg partial batches of beer, but I'll never totally depart from bottling.

After a year of sitting idle, Andre's All-Grain Brewery has reopened.
Batch #59-Kolsch (Secondary)
Batch #60-Blueberry Ale (Primary)
