You are already on your way to a deep deep obsession. Welcome!

Funny...My obsession started with building a kegerator. I knew a guy that had been brewing and talked my wife into letting me get the equipment to brew...a few thousand later....HAHAHAHA!!!

I don't have a problem, I can quit whenever I want... I just need to buy more conies because I only have one empty, and I need to get more ingredients to brew. Long weekend coming up here, and if I don't brew there's no telling what I'll do..

On a side note, did you replace your O-rings on those cornies!?!? I definitely would since you got them used (need all 5 o rings and 7/8 or 11/16 deep socket depending on keg).

congrats man, Kegging is where it's at. I started kegging to eliminate bottling, but that's now considered one minor benefit. Walking to feet away and drawing a pint of your home made beer off your home made keezer is awesome, Knowing it's better than most beers you'd buy down the street for much more money, priceless.
