Default What's your biggest brew day?

I brewed up 24 gallons today by myself (some assistance from SWMBO)...which made me think there's gotta be some gigantic brew days from people on this forum...what's your personal biggest? (Not counting contributions from others brewing w/ you at a brew party)

i brewed 3 - 5.5 gallon batches in a day once. that's about it. i have all the equipment to do 15-18 gallon batches now, so that number should increase very soon

I'm such a Weiner for such a big guy.
5 gallons of beer and 3 batches 1 gallon each of wine.

Man...I can't wait to spend that stimulus check.

We did 10 gallons of All Grain and a 5 gallon extract. With current equipment i cant get an all grain over 10-12 gallons. Some day a bigger kettle would be nice 20 gallons.

My first experience with AG was a 35 gallon batch with a buddy who's been brewing for years. He had a friend fabricate a massive SS brew pot. It took forever for it to come to a boil. We used an oar to stir it.

10-gallon batches here. I never saw the point in trying to kill myself with more than one batch in a day.......

11 gallons is typical for me. Many times me and a friend split two batches. So, technically we do 22 gallons at a time.
