I picked up one of the pressure barrels a few hours ago, very excited to get in to homebrewing

Don't waste your money, bottle instead.

Bottling take ages, a better option is to re-use the 5 litre mini kegs (hobgoblin etc) you can buy from Costco and main supermarkets.

Yes bottling for some people is better and possibly cheaper if you already have 40 empty strong bottles hanging around plus a few hours to spare for cleaning and sanitising them thoroughly then individually bottling each one.
Personally I went from bottling then onto these barrels and finally the brilliant Cornelius keg system.

Pressure barrels are great in theory, not so much in reality. Bottling is better but cornie kegs are the way to go.

Most of us, beer drinkers, have plenty of spare bottles. I just pop in to a local pub whenever I run short on then. And it doesn't take that long to do it.

Unless you can drink the entire keg in few days, most of the beer will get flat. That's a real waste of time and hassle..
