Default How often do you brew?

As I troll around HBT I see people with many different brews on tap or multiple brews fermenting. While I have certainly had both of these I get the feeling Im not brewing as frequently as otheres, which kind of makes me jealous. SO with that said Id like to see how often you guys are brewing. Me...about once every 2-3 weeks. YOU???

It really depends on what is going on. I felt that I got pretty carried away in '08. I was brewing 2 batches a month minimum and had several stints of once a weekend for a couple months at a time. My neighbors and coworkers really liked me last year.

I do maybe 5 gallons a month. I drink little enough (<10 pints a week) that it's more than enough for me. It also lets me have stuff in my sig longer

Good question so I looked at my notes. I've brewed 11 times this year so with this being the 30th week of the year, it looks like I average about every three weeks or so. And when I brew I do 10gal AG.

A lot. I lost count. At least 20 gallons a month. I had 40 gallons fermenting at one time. I'd be brewing right now if it wasn't for those damned lagers in the way.
