Default A moment of silence

Well my first ever batch of beer is GONE! It took me about 5 weeks to drink a full 5 gallons. The good news is that I've got another 5 gallons that's about a week away from being ready to bottle.

How long does it take you to drink a full batch?

I average 5 gallons every 2 weeks.

It varies for me. My batches usually last about 5 weeks. I've had one gone within one day before, when I had friends over. With the summer coming up, and co-workers really wanting to try my brews, I am working double time to try and keep up with demand. I expect to go through 10gallons one night this summer... we'll see.

Tough to say. I currently have three taps, so if I'm kicking 5 gallons a month, that means I'm really going through 3x 5 gallon kegs every three months, since I don't always drink the same thing. And I'm trying to move up to a 5x or 6x tap system shortly.

The fastest I've gone through a 5 gal keg, though, is 2 hours. Oktoberfest!

I kind of have beer ADD. I like the brewing and tasting of the product, then I like to move on and keep trying new commercial beers or other homebrews. So I end up giving most of my beers away.

I'd say I probably drink half of my batches usually...

2 kegs can last over 3 months for me. I'm a light weight and I'm the only one drinking it...

I don't put beer on tap for a few reasons, but one is how quickly I would go through it. At least with bottles after a dozen you've got all those little soldiers staring at you reminding you it's probably time for bed.

Depending on which of my friends come over we'll easily go through 5 gallons in a night, which is another reason why I always have 5-8 beers on hand. Gotta keep the pipeline full...you never know when a party is going to break out!
