I made some minor upgrades to my kegerator today. I removed a useless air vent from the back wall which made room for one more keg. In addition I moved my 20# co2 tank to the outside. I now have the room for to stow 6 cornies. I took the lines from my 3 way manifold and placed in barbed T's to split the gas. I now have 6 gas lines; 2 liquid QD's, the other 4 gas QD's. I use the liquid QD's to speed up carb time. I bought a check valve off ebay to prevent beer from coming back up the line if pressure in one of the serving kegs drops faster than the reg can delivery fresh gas (such as hitting the blow off). Finally I added the third faucet/shank I had hanging around. As soon as I keg my next beer I'll have three beers on tap; Brown Ale, Vanilla Bourbon Porter, and a nice ESB.

Cheers!

Are you still going to be calling yourself a kid when your liver needs replacement?

I'll be 24 in March but (take a look at my profile) I look like I'm 16. I'll be getting ID'd til I'm 30. Also I started brewing at 19 which I believe made me the youngest member of this board. Couple all that to the fact that the average member age here is about 40, I will always be The Kid!
Cheers!

Peter,

You are WRONG...!! The average age just got bumped a bunch as I'm 67... You were not counting that into the mix. 40?? My word..!!

Peter,

Depending on where you live, you will always be carded. I am 39 and 339/365ths I have lots of grey hairs in a long beard and still get carded.
Give a man a beer and he'll waste an hour. Teach a man to brew and he'll waste a lifetime.

Yep, sometimes it doesn't matter. We have two different grocery stores chains around here that are owned by one company (Roundys). They card everyone, regardless of age. I understand the CYA factor, but c'mon. I've seen them card 80 year old men and women already. That's going just a little too far.

Peter, I give you tons of credit for your beer and brewing knowledge. When I was your age I thought MGD was a heavy beer that I wouldn't drink because it "filled me up". Talk about young and foolish!

Bob, that's because you live near Alpharetta and it's a law there that they have to card everyone.

I'm 47 and bought a beer for me and my wife at a concert near Boston. They carded me and wanted my wife's ID (even though she wasn't with me at the time I bought the beer). I had to go get her, but she left her ID in the car. So I had to go out to the car and get her ID so I could buy 2 beers. Un believable!
