i've been brewing regular for 16 years. i have no idea. some winters i brew a lot (this winter i think about 180 gallons- but i filled a barrel), some just 8 or nine beers. i hardly ever brew in the summer- it could be deeper than logistics, but something in me just doesn't feel like cooking when it's hot out. i took like a two year hiatus when i restored a bungalow in 2000- 2002, and had no kitchen. maybe 150 - 200 batches?

39 batches since March 2010. I use Google docs as a brewing log, access anywhere, even from phone, won't lose my data, and I usually start a new one each year, as the old one starts to get too long

I'll be brewing up batch #9 friday for my 5 gal series and I've "brewed" about 7 or 8 Mr. Beer kits. Still no AG yet although my friday batch is a 11.5lb grain mash with 2lbs of DME. Barely a PM haha

Filled up a steno pad. Then got lazy. Just started doing the recipe development on the computer. Not really comparing old to new. I just save each recipe as I make it, and write a new one, even if I rebrew. That way, I have a date record of the last edit. I do mostly 11-12 gallon batches now. Probably 140+ batches. Not sure how many gallons over time.

I think I'm between 70 and 80. Time sure does fly.

I started in 1996 and stopped in 2002 ish. I was a pretty heavy brewer probably 20-25 batches a year.

I just started again at the middle of January and have 6 batches bottled or in progress so far this year. Doing AG this days but was an extract guy in the 90's.

If I had to guess it would be somewhere in the low 100's.
