Earlier I was going to suggest a kegging setup, but didn't because this might involve a small fridge. However, bottling would largely become a thing of the past.I truly believe that kegging saved my home brewing career. I hate bottling.
I bottled a batch last December. 1st time in 4 years. I guess I'd forgotten how hard it was? It took almost 2 hrs just to clean/sanitize the bottles before I even started to bottle. Plus, I didn't wear gloves and between the water, sanitizer, and cold weather my skin cracked so bad they almost bled. Never again!
You must not have been using a bottle tree and sulfiter! Last weekend I sanitized well over 100 bottles in about 10 minutes.
I actually keg and bottle, but I understand the bottling angst. I gave up bottling after my second or third batch and switched to kegging because I hated the bottling so much. But my nasty avocado green brewing fridge was sacrificed when moving in with SWMBO and I had to switch back to bottles. She banished me from my tried and untrue bleach-and-bottles-in-the-bathtub-then-rinse-forever method of sanitizing, so I was dragged kicking and screaming into the world of Star San. A new brewing buddy (i.e. he was new to brewing) helps out occasionally at a winery and he suggested we borrow their bottle tree and sulfiter. We also used his capper and a bottling bucket that doubles as my MLT.
Holy frijoles, Batman!
Bottling is a snap now! Turned out my capper sucked (his was great), Star San is the greatest thing since sliced bread, and a bottling bucket is a hell of a lot easier than trying to maintain a siphon whilst filling bottles. I have since purchased a True kegorator and some additional kegs, but I still actually enjoy bottling. So I do both. YMMV.
