Not yet. I've still got 30# which should get me through the 3 or 4 batches. I'll probably be out of it in about 4 to 6 weeks.

I've still got about 90LBs of malt, but I'm sure I'll need to buy more soon anyway...

Don't you guys brew like 30 gallons of beer every weekend? At least that's what seems to happen every time I'm around!

I bought 165 total, but I also had another almost full 55LB bag.

Ok.. so 2.5 months ago you had 165+55 = 220 pounds of grain. You have 90 left, meaning that you have gone through 130lbs in the same time that I went through 25lbs. This is not even accounting for the grain that Dallas has gone through... this is just your stash.

Yet... Dallas insisted to me that you guys brew no more than I do.

Either your efficiency SUCKS ASS and you use 40lbs of grain for a 5 gallon batch (you do BIAB, right?) , or Dallas is in denial.

Well,

Please don't lump me in with that Brew-Slacker Dallas.

The extra 55LB was almost full, say 45LB or so, but I shared that bag with Dave (Spanky).

I know I have brewed at least the following since I got the bulk grains. A very rough grain bill estimate as I don't feel like looking it all up right now. These brews have all been made with the 210LB of grains (165 + 45).

5G Pilsner 10LB
5G Lite 7LB
5G IIPA 18LB
5G Balantine XXX 7LB
10G EdWorts Pale Ale 16LB (split with Dave)
5G CYBI Levitation Clone 9LB (split with Dave)
10G Blue Moon 9LB (split with Dave)
10G ESB 20LB (split with Dallas)
1.5 Burned Porter 2LB
5G Second Runnings of Levitation/Bluemoon 2LB additional
So 100 LB or so?


That still leaves 110LB so I must be off on either my guesstimate of how much malt I have left or missed a beer or 2.

I'm guessing I brew more than you? I have also been brewing like crazy since I got my MLT and no longer have to BIAB.

eh...


I forgot Dave, Chris, and I used that 45LB bag to brew the Ruination and Burning river at the April Brew-N-Que, so there is another 20 LBs gone there.

Wow - I think I've only brewed three times since then, and one of those I didn't even use my 2-row!
