I was just trying to think about how much I have brewed and have realized that I am almost to 100 gallons. Not much but I have been brewing for almost a year. Just wondering how long you folks have been making beer?

April 2005 in Ft Wayne, IN

Used a 30qt turkey fryer pot as my MLT, direct fired, lautered in another vessel, boiled in the 30qt turkey fryer pot (after it was rinsed out from the mash). It was very labor intensive, but great beer.

since 2/09, 35 gallons
Up to now, I have been brewing partial mash on my stove. I just picked up a keggle so I'm looking forward to full boil and trying AG.

Spring 2005... I can't wait to get back to brewing as much as I used to. I have been upgrading my system and it is starting to get old. I just want to be brewing again

About 3 months ago and I'm upgrading and getting more equipment constantly! I love the addiction.

The first of the year. I did get introduced to home brewing in the mid 80's. A good friend was into brewing back then , but we lost touch over the years.

Late March, 2007... So a little over 2 years. Not all that long in the grand scheme of things.
