I finally did it. Just couldn't help myself. I had 3 batches of beer to bottle and only enough bottles for one batch.
So I went to my LHBS and came home with this:

Cornelius Kegging System

Went with the 3 keg system. Got my first batch in a keg now just waiting on it to carb up!
Gonna keg the other 2 batches tomorrow. I am so gonna miss bottling.

Beer is for drinking,
Homebrew is for sharing.

Congrats. There is nothing like pulling a fresh pint of your homebrew.

I bottled all of 1 batch before I decided I wanted no more to do with it. You are going to LOVE how easy kegging is compared to bottling.
Primary - Beer
Primary - More Beer
Secondary - Still More Beer
Kegged - Yet More Beer
Planning - A Bunch of Beer and some mead

I always forget to update this thing, so the above should in general hold true.
