I try to to brew a 10g batch once every 2-3 weeks. Lately I've been wanting more variety so its been 5 gallons almost every week. I just like brewing so it makes sense for me to brew smaller batches more often.

I did 1 5 gal brew every other week. now I do 10 gal. brews so its once a month,or every 3 weeks if I am lucky. I was so into going to 10 gal. but with doing 5 at a time I got to brew more and i kinda miss that. but as long as I have great home brew ready to drink I'm good.

One 5 gal. batch at home per month (stove-top AG) and I split two 10 gal. batches with a buddy when we brew in his garage each month.

I don't necessarily go through 15 gals. a month, but love brewing and can kill a 5 gal. cornie fairly easily when I have buddies over for UFC or a hockey game.

5 gallons every 2-3 weeks. If i had more storage I'dprobably do more. I need a house with a garage and walk in fridge.

I checked my calendar and it looks like I've made 8 batches so far this year, but I didn't brew anything between January and the end of April because we had so much stuff taking up my brewing space. Since the space has cleared up I've been brewing about once every two weeks. On alternate weeks I bottle, transfer to secondary, etc.

I try to brew every other Sunday, but I usually wind up having to take a break because I run out of room.
