I'm currently limited to 2 taps and 5 kegs. This is fine for now but like Chriso said, once I start brewing 10 gallon batches for proven favorite recipes, then more kegs may be needed, especially for beers benefitting from cellaring.
That said, I still like bottling certain beers, too, and probably always will bottle belgians, weird experimentals, and big beers, which won't be drank frequently enough to make them tap-worthy.
