I'm ready Gary, I just brewed up a batch of beer yesterday, and I'll be brewing another 3 batches in the very near future. I'm gonna start kegging my beer instead of bottling. Bottling sucks! I've got a huge commercial 3 keg kegerator that I'm trying to fill. I can get at least12 of my homebrew kegs in there and I've got 5 faucets to hook 'em up to. I'm also working on a way to put a keg onboard and have a tap piped to the cockpit. Everyone will know where the party boat is.

Are you going to Keg them under pressure with Nitrogen ??? What is the "shelf" life of the beer (not that it will hang around all that long anyway)

I'll use CO2 to pressurize it and carbonate it in the kegs. No more waiting 2 or 3 weeks for natural carbonation. You use nitrogen for Guiness, I'd have to buy a new tank, lines and to do it right an $80 faucet. There's plenty of other beers I can drink without all that added expense. With CO2 the beer will be good till its gone. Some homebrews, mostly stouts, need to wait 6 months before they are ready to drink. I'm drinking one now that was bottled in October and it's better than ever. They get better with age but it's hard to keep em around that long. The one I'm drinking now only lasted this long because I didn't like it much when it was new, now it's not bad at all.
I brewed a porter yesterday, and I've got a Full Sail Ale clone that I'll do next, then a Hoegarrden clone and another wheat beer that I'll do something with. Beer is good.

PS I had to take the still out of the bathroom...my brew had a strange skunky smell to it, I don't know how it got there

Preserve it? from what? Not like that training beer can get any worse than it already is! For that matter if it got skunky at least it would have SOME flavour. :lol:

I gotta get you brewing Steve. I may have my homebrew store guy up at our event in June to give a brewing class. I gotta tell you, there's nothing like getting drunk on beer you brewed yourself. Plus there's no hangover the next day. Let me get a couple batches kegged and come on over for some real beer.
