Default How fast do you consume 5 gallons of home brew?

How fast does everyone go through their batches of home brew assuming you're not aging it for a really long time? I find me with my home brewing buddies will go through a corny keg of brew in about 2 weeks on average. The worst/best case was a week.

2 people here take 2 weeks for 5 gallons. One reason I am moving to 10 gallons batches!

That depends on if I tell any of my buddies , 2-3 weeks seems to be about the norm.

Wow, I am a total slacker. Takes a couple of months for me.

Depends on how good it is. Brewing 5 gallon batches all the time, usually a month to take down one since at least 3 others are being consumed at the same time.

Batches usually stick around for a while since I brew a lot (48 G per month (4 12G batches over 3 weekends), but if I live brew to brew, then it would definitely be about three weeks.
Two a day keeps the witches away.
I agree with Kuntybrew, I keep a six of 12s in the archive for comparison tasting from batch to batch. Then the 22 ozs I save for special occasions and group tastings.

I guess it depends on the brew I have a cream stout that'll last last about 3 weeks, but my last 60 clone lasted 2.
