How much homebrew do you currently have in bottles/keg?
 
I just did a homebrew inventory and was shocked to find that I have 325, 12-oz bottles of homebrew aging or conditioning! That is over 30 gallons! :drunk:

I wanted to stock up for winter because I don't want to be brewing in Jan-Feb when it's 30 degrees outside in the middle of the day.

60 or so 12oz bottles
8 22oz bottles
3 5gal kegs

I'm behind!

I've got about 72 500ml bottles. 5 gallons in my fermenter and a batch on the stove as we speak.

I'm really seeing the benefits of having too much beer in the pipeline! It will always keep and most beer gets better with age anyway! As long as friends keep giving me their empty bottles I'll keep brewing! Half my Christmas gifts are covered with 6-pack giveaways! :mug:

just shy of 5 gallons of belma pale ale in keg
2 x 5gallons of cascades pale ale in kegs
10 gallons of imperial black IPA in fermenter

Does one person need 266 beers? Yes...

I lost count at 40 gallons...that's just the stuff in the kitchen and back closet, in fermenters or kegs. That's not counting stacks of bottles, I can't remember all I have.

Beer is like money. You can never have too much of it.


And frankly...in a Zombie Apocalypse beer will be more valuable for trade than money. If you run out of ammo you can offer the zombies an IPA while you make a break for it to trade some beer for more ammo!

I'm too steady a drinker to get my pipeline up. My last 3 bombers of a month old IPA are in the fridge, I have about 4 gallons of a more recent (and better flavoured) IPA, 3 gallons of a winter warmer "aging", 6 gallons of a bitter ready to bottle and 6 gallons of a pilsner I juzt put down today.

Planning an IPA for the Notty my biitter is fermenting on in a week or so. That one might be my last kit, switching up to using actual ingredients for home planned recipes after Christmas, which is a pretty exciting prospect!
