How much did you brew this year?
This has been my first full year of brewing. I've gone from extract with specialty grain cooling in the sink with an ice bath to all grain with homemade mash tun and immersion chiller. What a year. :) A total of 12 batches this year making 54 gallons! :D I hope 2006 is even better!

I brewed almost 100 gallons and it still wasn't enough. I guess I'll have to double it for 2006 so I can still donate at all the events.

I brewed 110 this year. I went from extract with grains to all grain. Bought a 15 gallon brew pot and extra carbouys so that I can brew 10 gallon batches this year. It"s been a great year.

Preparing to brew batch #20 for the year.:D That would be 100 gallons.:drunk:

13 batches this year. kind of slow year for me. too much moving, hurricane runnin', job hunting. gett'n tired of all this trivial stuff interfering w/ my brew'n! ;~)

22 batches; 110g or 1056 bottles of beer in the gut :drunk: . Started the hobby in Jan 05. Went from complete newb to quite knowledgable and 98% of that came from this site. Went from kit/dme to AG after 6 months. I'll probably be in the 22-26 batches in 06 as well.

Who voted the last option? :rolleyes:

I brewed about 115 gallons. I posted all the batches in another thread. might move it over here too.

I'm brewing up one last batch for 2005 today. A stout--better known as "Bloody Knuckle Stout". Hopefully this one turns out decent, as my luck with stouts has been questionable.

I went along pretty much the same schedule as DesertBrew. I did 6 extract batches, loved most of it, but decided to go AG after that. I started on Jan 8th 2005. I love this hobby.

Same here! I think a lot of us went this route in 2005! I did a total of eighteen 5-gal. batches - 90 gallons! I'm done for 2005.

But I'll be doing my Trainwhistle Ribbon Cane Porter next weekend and looking at some kind of light German lager - maybe a Dortmunder - to kick of 2006!

First off, the year isn't even over yet...you tryin' to cheat me out of two days? :mad:

Secondly, who says we have to use the Julian calendar? As far as I'm concerned the Chinese calendar is much more appropriate to beer making (for reasons unfanthomable even to myself), so we've got what, another month, until the new year? :confused:

Tertiary, I already told the IRS that my fiscal year runs from 7/1 thru 6/30, so I am legally bound to boycott this poll. :(

Other than that, that's kind of a personal question, don't you think? :drunk:
