When a keg is feeling really light, and you get a cloud of yeast in one of your pints, convincing you the next pint will kill the keg... but lo and behold 4 pints later it's still going strong.

That's a very good point. Although tonight is my last hoorah before I have to dry out for an upcoming race, so nothing new is going on tap for almost 2 weeks.

6 pints and counting...

I'd love to agree but I am a new brewer... I have four in primary and secondary but nothing ready to keg. I got that major shot of yeast two nights ago from my Cherry Wheat and had 2 servings left. This is the second time this has happened to me. When I have more waiting in the wings I may be able to feel this sense of joy...
