Fresh keg beer is a very good thing. That is all

Already on it. A Scottish 60 kit and 2 more used kegs being shipped.

I think a person needs at least nine kegs to have the right combination of beer on hand, beer lagering, and open kegs for upcoming batches. I have eight. When I had six I thought the correct number was eight but I was wrong.

Sh#t, I only have 3! 2 on taps and one backup. Sounds like I’m grossly under supplied. I’ll have to rectify this soon. Thank you good sir for informing me of what the correct number of kegs to have actually is. Now, how to explain to the wife in terms she’ll understand…

Thats easy. Lie.

My wife wasn’t thrilled with the homebrewing as a hobby, but she got over it. She’s pretty much stopped asking what the packages are for, anymore.

“More kegs?”

“Beer.”

“What’s this box of chemistry stuff?”

“It’s for yeast propagation.”

“Huh?”

“Beer.”

“What’s this box of pulleys and rubber belts?”

“It’s for motorizing the – uhh, it’s for beer.”

“What the heck is agar?”

“Beer.”

"Your brother dropped off – "

“Beer.”

Only had to go without beer on draft for a few days. Keg and carbed a Casacadian Black yesterday. My Cali Common will be ready next week and will be kegging an American Brown on Friday. Life is good. All hail the keg! :mrgreen:

The thought of bottling a full 5 gallons from a bottling bucket makes me cringe. If I need to bottle, I beergun it. It’s carbed, cold, and sediment free!

That’s hilarious because I have very similar conversations with my wife.

“What are you doing on your days off this week?”

Making beer.

“Didn’t you make beer last weekend?”

Yes but that was high gravity beer that needs to age.

“What?”

It’s not done yet.

“need anything from the grocery store?”

Yes x x and x

“What for?” “nevermind”

Just tapped my first keg tonight, and yes it is a very good thing! So much easier and better than bottling. I’ll be ditching a bunch of bottles soon. Hopefully I can find somebody that will use them for a while. The only bottling from now on will be a few from the keg!

Okay…I found this whole thread delightfully entertaining and lots of fun to read…but wow…this was REALLY creative!
