Default How many bottles a week?

I am a homebrewer (and I love it), but I only drink about 1 bottle a week. People that surround me doesn't understand my hobby. I'm curious if there are other people like me. Happy homebrewing everyone!

Depends what size bottles you're talking about.

I don't have any homebrew yet, but I probably go through 15+ 12 oz bottles a week of commercial beer.

usually about 1-3 a week, more so on weeks in which a party is happening.

I keg, as do many of us, so that drops the number drastically.

Cell, I don't understand your hobby either. One bottle a week? If you make five gallon batches, and give away half of it, it would still take you five months to drink a single batch.

Pappers, your application of math skills to real life is impressive. lol

On average I have 1 or 2 per night. Weekends have no limits.

Usually a 22oz every night, and then 3-4 if we have a bbq or get-together

Two a night on nights have them. It's one reason I bottle - two go into the refrigerator in the morning, so I am not tempted to have more than that (I like my beers). Every now and then I will have a little single malt scotch, maybe four or five nights I will have beer, and some nights nothing.
