Further, how long can one keep the kegged beer? Admittedly, I do not drink beer all that often. I usually serve my beers at parties or drink more of it in the summer months. Would I be able to just keep the keg in the fridge for a few weeks/months as if the beer were bottled and take it out when I wanted to serve it? Or does the keg need to be drunk quickly?
I'm just trying to weigh the advantages of kegging before jumping into it. I believe it would save me a lot of time and space, but I'm primarily contemplating whether it is a financially and tactically sound move considering my current beer consumption.
Tap 1: Puck that Filsner
Tap 2: Gentleman's Skids Brown Ale
Tap 3: Paddockwood Kolsch
I have a couple SMaSh brews from early August in the keezer still but I don't tend to have beer stick around very long.
Thanks a lot for the info.
