I drink 2 to 3 pints per night. The problem is weight gain. I have gained 8 pounds in the last year despite walking 4 miles per day and riding my bike 50-60 miles per week!

I am now trying to brew moderate calorie brews...beers in the 150 calorie per pint range.

My problem is that I LOVE ipa's which tend to be calorie rich.

Sunday-Thursday, I would say I have beer 4 out of 5 nights. 1-2 pints. Friday and Saturday, usually 3-6 depending on what "events" are going on. Parties, camping trips, etc....... 10-15 are not out of the question.

I just started brewing and really needed the bottles..... so I have been drinking 4-5 on weeknights and taking the opportunity over the weekend to collect many extras on top of the normal rotation. It's been tough but I have collected enough for several batches over the last month and a half. Couple hundred at the very least. Unfortunately I did have to acquire bottles by lesser means, but I am finally slowing down.

Default Anything health related worsened since you guys started brewing?

I was reading the how much do you drink thread..people drinking 5-10 beers a day sometimes.

It got me wondwring..Has anyone got health from all this ?

Canadian men are advised to usually drink 21 units of alcohol per week at most. This is less than 2 pints a day.

You also drink a whooping 2870 calories a gallon too.

I am a gout suferer myself. But did any one of you have diabetes, cardiac problems, etc or even plain old beer gut from picking up the hobby?

Probably a lot of health effects. I'm in the 3-4 drinks a night group. Usually a beer or two and two glasses of wine.

I can't imagine that's healthy at all.

I'm pretty active so my gut is kept at bay, for now...

I don't eat regularly and have an insatiable appetite so the extra 3k calories is actually a lot of help to me.

I think my mental health has gotten better from both the creative outlet that brewing gives me and the fact that I need a few to unwind after working ALL day.

Before I started brewing I would go months. Once my first batch was done, I had about a 1 liter bottle a night until it was gone. Next batch is in bottles now and I'm waiting to put em in the fridge. Then the cycle will start again.
