These 2.5 gallon ball lock kegs have reinvigorated my homebrewing hobby. I now have 6 of them in rotation and bottling is no longer a giant, messy pain.
The upsides to kegging, for me, are myriad. No more clumsy bottle filler. No more sanitizing cases of empty glass bottles. No more stinky, sticky bug filled bottle collection waiting to be cleaned. At its simplest, you siphon your beer from your fermenter into the keg and seal it up.
The only nuance is carbonation. You can bottle/cask condition in the keg, but you need less sugar (about 1/2-1/3 of what you'd normally use.) If you'd rather, it is also very easy to force carbonate your beer with CO2 and skip the entire bottling sugar step.
I use this handy CO2 charger and this tap, force carbonation is harder with them but it can be done. If you buy a more complex CO2 filling system, it gets quite easy.
Refrigerate a keg for 24-36 hrs before serving. It takes a while to cool them down!
Kegging was a major step in simplifying my homebrew process. Without the mess of bottling this hobby became fun again.

I apparently made a mistake somewhere down the line when I was setting up my family accounts on iCloud. (It’s confusing, at least to me.) Now Apple is punishing me by locking me out of my purchased iBooks for 90 days.
You know, I thought it wasn’t possible to create anything funnier than “Farting Priest,” a now classic viral video in which scamming televangelist Robert Tilton is revealed as the gassy fartbag he truly is.
We should all be so lucky to be loved this much.
