Default how do you people stockpile??

I wish i could figure it out, lost here about this. Between the suggested times i hear for conditioning and whatnot, i cant keep even one 5gal batch around long enough to have different beers around my place.

There was a post about this yesterday.. get more fermentors and keep them full. Brew bigger batches if you need to. It's pretty easy if you have the time to brew. Heck, a new bucket fermentor only costs a few bucks if that's all that's stopping ya.

+1 to brew brew brew. My Home Depot now sells white, food-safe buckets and yours might too. I've also found a restaurant that provides me with free sanitized 5 gallon buckets, so my fermenters are down to being about $1.50. After that, you have to find a recipe you like and brew a lot. You'll save on cost/shipping if you by in bulk anyway.

I have 5 fermenters - two are usually tied it with mead, the other 3 with beer at all times. I plan brew days to bottle and brew at the same time so they're never empty.

I have a freezer with a temp controller that can hold 4 6.5 gallon fermenting buckets. There have been times it was full. I usually brew every two weeks. Sometimes I'll brew up to three batches in one week.

Well you brew one pretty bad batch your first time around, then nobody wants your beer after trying that one. Bam, 5 gallons all to yourself every time.

Been working out pretty well for me so far.




But seriously, more fermenters is what you really need.

Im trying to convince the SO that i need another fermenter, she drank the majority of my first beer, and she already said she doesnt want to wait for my chimay to be ready in december/january so it looks like i need more a) space or b) fermenters...

Awesome. Buckets are inexpensive. Get 2 or 3 more!
