So im just a noob at brewing, I bottled my first batch a little over a month ago it tasted so great i only have 3 bottles left, that got me thinking if i keep drinking at this rate im never gona build up a pipeline so it was off to the LHBS to get another bucket and some ingredients for 2 batches of beer.
Right now ive got 2 buckets bubling away next to each other nothings brings me more joy than seeing that (except drinking it of course)

So how many do you have?

I've got 4 carboys. A 6.5, a 6, and 2 5 gallon.

I use the 6.5 and 6 as primaries primarily but use whatever I have empty for whatever I need at the time.

I have 5 full 6.5 gallon carboys. One will be thrown away when I empty it. Has a crack in it. I have one that I borrowed that is empty and it has a weird funny white ring in it, so I might leave it be. And then I have one that hasn't been cleaned in years. I might get to that one eventually. So 7, soon to be 6, 4 I trust at the moment.

I have 1 bucket, 1 better bottle, and 2 carboys. I use kegs for secondaries to help keep the fermenters empty.

3, ~6 gallon glass carboys
1, 6 gallon better bottle
3 buckets, but one is pretty much only used for sanitizing and storing
