"I bottled my first 2 batches and then bought a keg system. Now I only bottle the special batches that I won't be drinking as often, like the Chocolate Stout with powdered Peanut Butter dessert beer that's in the secondary now. "

"Kegging is definitely the way to go.  Then, when you have friends who want to take some home, get either a counter pressure bottle filler or (my favorite) a Blickman beer gun.  If you clean and sanitize a few bottles then cover…"

"Yes, it's for the beer maturation, not carbonating it. You'll get the hang of it, the beers are 'rough around the edges' right from secondary.  If you want to experience it for yourself make a malty beer or a hoppy…"

"If you force carbonate do you really need to keg condition?"

Mike Patient replied to Corey Holmes's discussion Kegging
"You'll keg so much, you'll forget how to bottle.   Don't skip that conditioning time though, even a fresh keg needs a few weeks to mature. You'll notice it from your first few batches, the last few beers are always better. I…"

Corey,

Just FYI, if you are interested, a group of guys just started a Homebrew Club in Middletown. More information will follow as we begin to grow and put the word out.  

On a side note, would love to see what you got brewing! I live in Middletown so I am sure I am not too far away.
