Default if i lived alone, i'd have to stop brewing now legally!

i just hit over 100 gallons of home made beer this year, and only 10 gallons of which were either infected or dumpers.

feeling pretty good since it's been just over a year that i've been brewing!

You get to subtract the dumpers from your legal limit. It's ain't beer if you can't drink it.

Excellent point! Luckily even though my pregnant wife isn't drinking, I can still brew her 100 gallons before December 31st!

Sorry, they don't count until they are old enough to crank the mill.

last year I just about hit the 200G limit. With a large pipeline built up (and being too tied up in my other hobbies), I've only brewed 7 batches so far this year. I expect to brew a couple more by year end.

I just tallied up my total for the year the other day. 73 gallons. I know I'd have hit a hundred had i not stopped brewing to pack my stuff up and move. good job though!

Wow, that i a lot in a year. I hope to one day get up to 20+ batches a year. Congrads on that much with only 2 dumpers. Keep it up, 25 days left to go.

I just took a look at my brew log. Not counting cider or mead, I brewed 75 Gallons last year, and 70 this year.
I will be brewing one more time before the end of the year.
I will have brewed the same amount two years in a row.
