Shouldn't this thread be closed since it was keeping track of 2009 beers? I haven't updated with any of my new brews because of this..

Now that its almost 8 months into the year, may I be the one to congratulate all brewers for a successful year of brewing?

30,862 Gallons!

Can we convert this into pounds? Estimate calories? Total CO2 emitted? How many pools we could fill? How long we could supply BMC? How many truckloads of beer/ grain/ hops? Hours of time WELL SPENT? Simply number of beers? The sky is the limit here.... I say its 30,862 gallons of water treated with respect! ...Lucky water!

Congratulations Folks!

Probably closer to 100,000 gallons of water (probably a lot more) if you take into account full boils, cleaning, sanitizing, rinsing, etc.

30,862 gallons, approximately $35 invested per 5 gallons (low estimate if you figure equipment amoritization)

$154,310 documented in this thread alone. Probably 5%-10% of batches brewed on HBT are documented here. Probably less than 5%-10% of homebrewers use HBT.
