    The problem with a forum devoted to beer is you tend to get a lot of drunken posts. Here's mine.
    My keezer is designed to hold 6 kegs on tap, and 2 in reserve, conditioning. I am about ready to blow 2 kegs, and I only have 1 in reserve. I have a carboy I can keg, but the next beer to be close to ready is a week out. I gotta brew tomorrow to keep my pipeline limping along! The two kegs I'm about to blow are two of my favorites, so I think the decision is made as to what I'm brewing tomorrow. My wife's next beer that I promised to brew will have to wait! She's a fan of the Blue Moon Gingerbread Spiced Ale.

    That would be my own amber ale, tweaked with roasted malt this time. The beer I'll be kegging has only roasted malt (other than 2 row) in it.

    I used to hate the waiting game on kegs , just seem to be tasting great then they blow !!
    I have 7 of the tap a draft mini kegs to supplement my bottles and I can do an accurate stock take in minutes !
    All my bottles are in milk crates for easy handling /storage .
    Added bonus to using a full size fridge for fermentation is the freezer stays at serving temps with fridge at ale temps

    Another one bites the dust.

    Now I only have 5 kegs on tap. Hopefully I can speed carb one I'll keg tomorrow, and have it ready by Tuesday!!
