    Kegging Decision


    Hi

    I wonder if I could get some advice. I've decided to get going on kegging. I have most of the kit (bought as part of a keggle keezer purchase last year), except the actual keg. I have 2x S type couplers. However I'm not clear, based on mostly availability and size options, whether going for Euro type s couplers kegs is smart just because I have the couplers . My Keezer could fit 2x 30l slimline I reckon, but apart from dispense.co.za these don't seem very commonly availble? 30l is also just a bit too big, was hoping to keg 20l and bottle 10l for friends (but I suppose I could go the growler route for that). Thoughts would be appreciated ;-). Specific question: Am I correct that deciding not to stick with the s types that I have (ie buying a different coupler or going straight to Corny Kegs), it will only be the couplers that I'm 'giving up on' not the rest of the set up: regulator, tap etc?

    Thanks!

    What's the volume of wort you produce on a typical brew day? That could be an indication

    Beerplus has slim 30l kegs, sometimes in stock sometimes not, currently not.

    I'm going Corny keg, tired of mini kegs and bottling

    Currently 19l, but hoping to bump up to around 30l except for specialty brews, which I'd carry on bottling anyway ( ie this is is part of a general upgrade from a 50l biab urn, to a 3 vessel keggle herms system). The flexibility of the corny keg range (eg a 10l to take to a party keg is appealing).

    Would it be crazy to mix and match? Eg I get my two standard 30l for my fixed taps, and have a couple of corny kegs? Or will that entail a life of constant fixture moving and frustration.

    @Matthew De Gale Welcome

    Good luck getting that Keezer up and running. You're gonna love kegging. I hardly ever bottle these days and when I do, it's from the keg

    PS: If I had the couplers, I would try get my hands on some slimline kegs

    Just kegged my blonde. Man ended up making 25l of it. The extra 5l took longer to bottle then the 20 did to keg. Man is need to stop lowballing my efficiency numbers in app. Anyway happy brewing.
    Decided to resurrect this thread just for this.

    Same, my batches fill a keg, no more no less. Kegging also follow covid protocols. You should be staying at home, where your kegs are
