Default How much do you brew? Hitting the century mark.

Hey everyone,

Did the math the other day. with the batches I have purchased and brewing in the next 2 wks, along with one more batch, I will have hit 100gal since I started brewing in February. Luckily I plan on brewing at least 3 more batches including my first 10gal. batch. So I think I may hit the 120gal mark. Not bad for my first year of brewing I guess lol.

So, I know we have the "total" for all homebrewers, but I am interested in your individual totals. Is 100+ gallons a norm for a year total?

Can't wait to hear from ya.

Kyle

depends on how much we and all our friends drink. in general, yes, we all blow away the 100g mark. i have neighbors/friends who love the homebrew (as most of us do, since it blows out commercial bs), and i brew twice that

I usually brew (2) 5 gallon batches a month, to keep the 3 tap keggerator online. So, I guess I am about a 120 gallon brewer as well. I also usually knock out those two brews in one weekend, thus only brewing one weekend a month. I would brew everyday if I could, but SWMBO might keep track of that vs. my habit now

I just added it all up, and I'm at 115 gallons this year. I've been whining about not having the time to brew as much as I want this year too....

So I looked up last year, and at the advice of my lawyer, I would say that I brewed exactly 200 gallons. Darndest thing...

Now that I think about it, I didn't start brewing until late feb. which means, come 2011, I will still have almost 2 more months...I could possibly put up 150gal in my first year of brewing. Now, realistically, I only brew for myself, but I am not stingy with my brew when it comes to guests, so I am pretty sure plenty of it get drank by others, still...That is an awful lot of beer...all of which I am awful proud of making . ok, enough drunk rambling from me. Goodnite ya'll.

Kyle

I'm at batch 94 right now. Three and a half years in. If my move goes as I hope it does, I'll be able to brew up to about 98 by December. Beer #100 better rule.

I usually do 10 gallons every 2 weeks but this year is less as my tap water temps this summer where in the 80's and my balcony is south west facing too freakin hot.
