Last summer I brewed every weekend for 12 weeks straight. Started with 5g batches and upgraded somewhere in the middle to 10g. This summer I've been gone a lot, this last sunday was the first time I've brewed in close to two months. Those are the extremes, normally it's 1-2 brews per month (I split a lot of batches with friends, so I'm usually only keeping half)

I do a 5-gallon batch about once a month.

I've been doing 5gal batches at least every weekend... but I am going through it too fast. Plan on doing 2x 5gal batches this weekend to try and put some time in my pipeline while I get my AG equipment put together.

I was about 5 gallons a month but think it has gone up recently. I am still doing 5 gallon batches as I can't see myself drinking 10 of one before getting sick on it (wait... we are talking about beer, how could I get sick of it )

I did do 8 gallons last saturday, I will keg 5 and bottle 3 hopefully, I may continue this trend to have some bottles on hand to take places and not deal with filling from the keg.

Typically depends on what the pipeline looks like or how much storage I have available.

I try to brew 2 10g batches a month.

My hope on that, is that I can store 1 keg of it to age a bit... and it might be nice to do a different yeast in half of the batch, to taste them side by side.

If I have a free weekend at home, I'll try and brew. I'd say I average 2-4 beers a month depending if I do a 5 or 10 gallon batch. Ive been splitting my 10's and using different yeast to get the most variety out of my know recipes, and my 5's are mostly experimental, or lagers(I only have a small lagering chest).

But I'd say it's not enough!

I drink at least 10 gallons a month...oh wait, brewing. I brew right to the limit and not over also. My household has consumed about 50gallons so far this year.

I used to brew once or twice a month. I did extract for a while (5g) then switched to 11 gallon all grain. I Just bought a 7 gallon conical so I could do 5 gal batches to increase the variety, but I give away some beer and take it to parties, so ....... I still brew 11 gallons, but 1/2 goes into a cube for ferment later. If I don't brew every other week, I can ferment from one of the cubes.

Still working out the kinks in the new system. Since I signed up here, I have brewed 5 batches.

I learned a LOT since I have been hanging around here.

David the Happy brewer.

Stir plate came today!
