    A month and a half my guess is that keg is nearly done unless you brewed 10 gal of it...

    Actually I have managed to stay away from it so I have about three-quarters of a keg so I have to brew Saturday because it's not going to last long

    So if you have stayed away from it... where'd the other quarter keg go? Quality Control testing? :D

    I'm gonna start brewing in 10 gallon batches to compensate for waiting time.

    I know I can never wait that long. I can't brew fast enough to keep one keg in the keezer as it is. We seem to have also picked up more visiting friends around the same time we tapped our first keg. Strange coincidence.

    But you gotta do quality control! Kudos for only drinking (er uh testing) a 12 pack's worth. :)

    Gonna check it tonight, it's been spunding for 7 days at 15lbs, I'll probably send it to cold crash tonight for 7 days of conditioning, by next Friday it should be ready to drink.
