I keg....... ;D

I gift beer to friends and enter competitions, and even though most of it goes into kegs, you still have to use some bottles.

I just bottled 5 gallons.  It takes about 1:45 these days, and I can get into a little grove doing it.  I used to hate it, but now have a zen thing going when I bottle.  Similar to shoveling snow these days.

Not into Kegs yet a six pack is just to hard to carry that way.  ::)
