Here’s the story about bottling your homebrew…
First you have to save your bottles. And you have to get your friends to save them, too. Everyone loves a ton of poorly rinsed beer bottles lying around the house, right?
Oh, and then you have to wash them all, being sure to fully sanitize and making sure all the labels come off. Fun.
Then, when bottling day arrives, you have to fill and cap each one. On average, this is more than 50 bottles for a 5 gallon batch of beer. Forget making bigger batches…
And after that batch is bottled, there is no more brewing for you unless you go buy a bunch of bottles, drink a ton of beer or dumpster dive for recyclables.
Bottling your homebrew is a pain! You should keg it instead!
That’s a bare bones kegging system – just get a taller mini-fridge and throw the corny keg inside and you’re set. (A corny keg is 26 inches tall so don’t get a dorm-sized mini-fridge.)
We know you won’t regret switching to kegs. Have a party. Keg your beer.
