Default How much do you brew

I reviewed my brew journal. Over the last 5 years I averaged 6.4 bbls of homebrew in 6 to 12 gallon batches a year. Wow! I must be afflicted but im probably not the onley one.

I hit 187gal in my 1st 11 months of brewing last year (2011). I'll be right at 100gal this afternoon (doing a saison), so it looks like I'm on the same pace. Of course, I brewed 100gal last year between Halloween & New Years...

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

Does the law vary from state to state? I thought that up to 200 gallons a year was legal.

Due to time, money, and space restrictions I can only brew about once a month and am limited to one 5 or 5.5 gallon batch at a time. This will put me right around 60 gallons for the year, but if I had my way it would easily be double that if not more.

200 gallons per 21+ adult in the house, so I could legally make 400 a year for swmbo and I.

I think I made around 150 last year, slowing it down more this year tho.

Federal law states 100 gallons per 21+ adult up to 200 gallons household.
