Then there are the friends I brew a batch for, and they don't have a keg system, so it goes into bottles. Even with 32 kegs, I will still have to move some beers I want to keep into bottles to free up a keg.

32 KEGS!! Dammmmmmmmmmmmn...

My retirement fund.

When you do a lot of lagers, 7 or more a year, 10 gallons at a time,  you tie up a lot of kegs for a long time. Some strong beers to age, and soon you have over 20 kegs full of beer in process.

Talking to a multiple Ninkasi winner at a local comp during lunch, he smiled and said he had 50.

Kegging is much easier than bottling and tons more fun. Go for it. I'm always looking for a good deal on kegs. Seems like you can never have enough.

tygo:
Do you have a walk in fridge?  My problem would be cold storage of all of those lagers.

Good question. I'm up to three 7.5cf chests, and two small conversion refrigerators. That takes care of 16 kegs. Any more and I'll need a walk in for sure. :)

I can have 16 kegs lagering. Looking at another small chest freezer.
