I started brewing around March, and did about 6 extract batches. Then I went to All grain and have done about 6 ten gallon batches.

Started in early October and knocked out six batches, just about one every two weeks. Now that I've got three carboys, I hope to speed that up to three batches a month, give or take. Brewing a batch tomorrow morning, in fact!

Katrina messed up my schedule this year, but I still managed to get out 12 batches anyway!

19 for me (20 if you count a mead), down from last year.

I experimented quite a bit again this year--I used pumpkin, smoked my own grains, used maple syrup and fenugreek, Mt. Dew, honey, rye, oak, fresh picked hops, and a whole pound of hops in brews this year.

I had a good year in competitions (the 2 that I entered), and I nailed down some pretty delicious recipes.

My 3 best brews of the year were:

1. Pub Ale
2. Red Eye Rye
3. Pliny The Bastid (the first one)

I've never killed a keg as quickly as I did on that Pub Ale. Incidentally it is now the official house brew for "Bratwursts and Shillelaghs", and will be the first one I brew for 2007.

I had a damn good 2006.

8 batches but only brewed for the last four months. (40 gallons)
Summer is here and temperate in cellar is lovely so I am starting to crank them out.
...building an extension just now and wife not too keen on the noise of the airlock so had to move them from the kitchen (next to bedroom) into the bathroom, but just about to knock the bathroom out to make a hallway into the new extesion, anyway lets just say it wasn't to be!

Got a cider going already this year and BeastII will be started at the weekend.

I only got about 14 off this year. That sounds dirt but what ever. But I had two moves a marriage and a new job in that. So thought that was pretty good. I will pick up the pace for next year.

About 11 or 12 this year. I am about the only one drinking it so I guess not too bad. I'll have to give a little more away to coworkers this year.

I'm also going strong during the winter months. I've learned that the colder my brews are during fermentation and clarification, the better they are in the end.

Since I moved to PM and AG, and since it got colder, the beers have gotten much better. So, following in the grand tradition of the Biere de Garde (beer for keeping), I'm stocking up on brew during the winter, to last me through summer.

Sweet. It seems we have some similar ideas in general about beer. I feel like a squirrel lol. I need bottles man! hehe. It seems to me that I'll probably be brewing some wheats in the late spring for summer and probably wind down a bit (refocusing on the garden and other outdoor activities). The winter is prime time though! I feel like I need to brew.

Started just before December. 6 (5.5 Gal) down, 1 extract the rest AG. Gonna try to brew weekly until I build up a good stock.
