If I time it right (for a change), I will have one keg emptied as I'm ready to fill it with something else. I currently have 2 empty kegs w/it's prospective residents in 2 plastic buckets, and a 5 gallon batch up on deck this weekend.

I would love to keep 4 kegs in the fridge and 3 on the ready at all times, but one bad weekend and my rotation gets all screwy.

I was there, just last month, 8 kegs full, 4 fermetors full. First time I ever had all three of my taps hooked up.

And then the holidays hit, a birthday, a poker game, and now I am 3 kegs full, and worst of all I will be out of IPA and pale ale in 2 weeks and no ale in the pipe line. Just a Dead Guy Ale clone.

Pale Ale is my life's blood!!!

I'm rethinking my pipe line.

Brew a lot of dark beers and and store them, then have a revolving pipe line of pale ales that need to be fresh and hoppy.

Dark beers store well for long periods at a time, basically emergency rations for the Zombie Apocalypse. I'll brew huge amounts at a time, and store them in a closet.

Got another fermenting vessel (to be) shipping out tomorrow from NJ. That will give me at least two free/empty vessels by this weekend, if no three. Just need to decide if I brew this Sunday, or just wait for the 15th... If I do this weekend, I will also do on the 15th.

Happiness is having enough fermenting vessels to keep your kegs full.

I have 6 carboys and 10 kegs and absolutely zero chance of keeping them all full while doing 5 gallon stovetop batches. But I'm trying. See my sig below... and note that I have everything I need to do a triple brew day today (though I usually stop after 2).

Funny, and true! Certain other subjects get immediate rebuke that it is "unwise to admit to violation of federal law on a public website"....yet many of those same people regular document violation of the 100/200 gallon home brewing limit.
In my mind it is important not to flaunt violation of that limit...EVEN THOUGH it is not currently enforced.

11 kegs, 10 of them with liquid in them, and 4 buckets fermenting in the closet... time to drink up soon!

I just read his post again... Sounds like he's done 20 batches over two years. He doesn't list the batch sizes, so assuming it's a "standard" 5 gallon batch size, that's 50 gallons per year over two years.

Bill, correct us if we are mistaken...

Is this a federal or a state level law you are referencing? How much is the "legal limit"?

that's federal. The states have the option to make it more strict, but can't make it more lenient.

But, it's not a good brew year unless the ABC is knocking down your door searching for homebrew

Actually, no one in this thread has admittted to breaking the brew barrier. Assuming a couple participants have a household of two. Besides, if you drink it faster than you can brew it, what's the point of keeping track?
