    No that is just the capping. Filling bottles and capping about 30 minutes, then there is still the cleaning time which is about 1 - 2 hours.
    In one intance of kegging compared to bottling, yes kegging is much quicker, but over many instances i.e. a year or more I think it can even out. With kegging you still have cleaning of keg, beer lines etc. There is maintenance on equipment, going out to fill CO2 bottles etc.

    Hey but I could be wrong as I have never kegged, just what I have found in my research.
    Everyone must beleive in something, I beleive I'll have another beer

    I do both. Kegging is a bit more expensive - fridge for kegs, kegs, CO2 . Great for fresh beers and lager. I bottle for darker beers, works great for that.

    Apparently there is a specific brand that is a bit better quality and doesn't need as much force. Can't recall what the name is now

    I have not progressed the keg route yet and bottle only at this stage.. and yes it's a bitch cleaning all the bottles and storing them .. full or empty. How I see it tho is that kegging is great for suiping at home.. having a bar setup and entertaining friends.. however dragging a keg to a friends braai or party is a bit of a slep - also you'll need a moerse coolerbox... possibly an upright version (lol) or you entertaining friend has space in his kegenator for you. .. otherwise taking bottles out to friends is easiest. .. So kegging at home and bottles at friends? Just my opinion.

    @alexbrew that's my opinion on it, yes. Kegging for home use, and then only bottling what you want to take to friends.

    If I go the kegging route, I'll probably go the growler route as well. Fill up a few litres to take to friends. I like my beers lower carbonated anyway, so it's perfect.

    Would love to Keg right now but I don't think it will be on the cards till next year.. seems like a bench capper is the way to go.

    P.s. dont take a keg full of NEIPA to a friend for tasting. All you end up with is a light cream milkshake. Not fun. So your growler idea is not bad for taking to friends

    Don't want to start a new thread for this.
    I want to install a thermowell in to a urn for a temperature probe. Does the position in the urn matter, can it be towards the bottom same level as the tap, or must it be hire up more towards the middle? Also, where in Pretoria can I buy ready made thermowells or have one made up?
    If you see how I drink, you'll understand my username.
    I don't drink water, unless it's been through a brewery first.
