PA liquor stores are closed today, so I'd say "all of it".

There's a keggerator in the kitchen, with the backup kegs at the liquor store (open until midnight every day) less than a block away.

Holidays suck anymore.

Too many cops going around harassing law abiding folks 'making sure they're safe'.

Congratulations. The first one is always great. Then you think, "wow this is easy, lets have another one" and therein is the big mistake.

Seriously Congratulations though and be prepared for many runs to the store for cravings and mood swings.

Croesius, enjoy it now:)
And Congrats!

For 15 guests, in addition to all that other stuff you will need at minimum 45 beers.

The correct answer is: More.
 
2012-09-03 11:21:47 AM
None. I don't drink. Herbal tea for me.

I'm just about to pull the trigger on installing one. Anything I should know? Any problems? Aside from too many new friends, of course.

That about covers it.

Let's see
15 guests times 3 beers each, carry the one...forget it. Just buy 15 cases.

This.

And if there were a party, it's BYOB. Nothing against drinking (though I'm currently on the wagon myself), but I'll be damned if I'm going to invite people to my house, feed them, entertain them, AND pay to get them drunk.
 
2012-09-03 11:35:03 AM
Apparently, more than I had. Oops.
 
2012-09-03 11:35:42 AM
Enough to totally screw up my fantasy draft? Yeah, that much

1 30-rack to every 5 guests, 1 house liquor drink, anything else is BYOB.

I'm actually forbidding myself from drinking alone anymore, if nothing else because I keep thinking that I want to drink for little reason. Once I start I tend to keep drinking, but other people tend to keep me in line. But the wish to always drink and keep drinking makes me feel like an alcoholic and I don't like that, especially since I really don't drink much.

Congrats on your "Greenlight" Subby!?

Ah, thanks for the congrats...

...I'm a dead man if she finds out I mentioned it on Fark before her parents heard!

Id stock a 5th a head if you have some sippers, or allow at least a sixer a head for the beer drinkers. Not like each guest is gonna take out a 5th (well, my crowd does), but better to have a bit more than not enough. If they want more than 6 beers, they can BYOB, good beer is farking expensive these days. Or if you hang out with a lot of people who dont mind drinking shiatty beer, you can always get a keg of Bud Light .

You'll also need a half ounce of some fine pot and a real good music playlist. You might want to let one of the younger guys in your family handle it; not everyone loves classic rock.

Cleaning kit. The lines should be cleaned after every keg.

A large decorative handle can snap the brass fitting at the base. Stainless steel replacements can be found online. Other parts can wear. (Google beer faucet parts)

Bear in mind that you can increase your drinking significantly (a friend tried to keep a keg and found it only lasted two to three weeks!)

Friends should deposit money in a convenient container. Otherwise they ain't friends.

A liquid-crystal strip is available that sticks to the keg. Wipe down with a warm, damp cloth to see the level inside.

Specialty beers need to be ordered in most cases - don't be caught dry on a Saturday night. 

Enjoy!

I don't equate drinking with having a good time anymore, so none.

Good to know.

That was worth shareing with the group. It really was.

\Arent you late for a meeting in a smokey church basement where you to a guy drone on about hitting his wife?

Muchas gracias on the giftage, good buddy!

jasonvatch: Enjoy!


Copied and saved, my friend. Thank you. Glad you mentioned cleaning the line. Soooooo many people forget that one, until they are drinking the nastiest stuff on earth.

Have at least two faucets. You can run multiple small kegs even in the smaller units (think 5 gallons each). I keep two home brew kegs on tap and still keep a variety of bottles/cans around.

Yeah, if each bottle is a growler
