What's on tap in your kegerator?

  1. I do the 1/6 barrels because i dont go through them all that fast and like to be able to get new ones whenever i want.

    I agree with that too. 15.5 gallons is a big commitment at my pace. I do occasionally get slim quarters which as you would expect is better than sixths, but not as good as halves. I had a quarter of Yuengling Porter go bad after 5 months on tap, still a gallon in it I expect.
     
  3. Just tapped my 2nd sixtel of HiJinx Barista's Choice #1. Great local coffee porter.
     
  4. Citra Pale Ale

    I have 4 of my 5 taps flowing right now...

    1. Imperial Stout - MZ clone
    2. Experimental Red Ale - I had a bunch of small amounts of various specialty grains so I just added them all into a brew to see how it would turn out.... it's actually pretty good after sitting over a year, wasn't so great when it was fresh
    3. Saint Somewhere Brewing Saison Athene
    4. Saint Somewhere Brewing Serge

    Enjoyed a keg of Saint Somewhere Anne last year. Going to attempt to get it again this year. It's an excellent beer.

    Yeah... I occasionally volunteer at the brewery when Bob is bottling... The Saison Athene keg that I have on now is about a year and a half old. It's getting good and funky. Most folks go home with a 6 pack of bottles for compensation, I go home with a full 5-gallon corny keg. I win :)

  11. Not sure if you are in the bay area or not, but Drakes has a great Brew Rhino keg program where you can swap em out at the brewery, much cheaper than going through a retailer ($55-65 to swap out the kegs with a new one).
     
  12. 1/2 bbl of Alaskan Amber Ale. I have maybe another week before it goes belly up. I started the year with a 1/2 bbl NB Ranger than on to a 1/6 bbl of Pranqster.
     
  13. That's awesome, but I'm about 2 hours away.

    My first ever homebrew stout is on tap right now, and I'm afraid it might be the best stout I'll ever make. I have the recipe written out and everything, I just hope this isn't a fluke.

  25. Stones arrogant bastard 1/2 b. It's in tap alot at my house since it's such a huge discount in the full keg. Comes out to a dollar a beer so I can drink that as my daily and stop drinking all my hard to find stuff.
     
  26. I have a 20 cu ft kegerator with 5 gallon kegs filled with the following:
    Firestone Walker - DBA
    Franconia - Wheat
    Cedar Creek - Smoked ALT
    Cedar Creek - Cream Ale
    Lakewood - Vienna Lager
    (Homebrew) - Citra Pale
    (Homebrew) - Canfied Pecan Brown

    I transfer commercial keg from the Sanke Tap to my coney kegs.

    Sadly, this one just kicked last night....bummer. Oh we'll, it was really good while it lasted. Not sure what's up next, haven't decided yet. Maybe a Lagunitas IPA or a SN Torpedo.
