on average how many of your homebrews (pint) do you drink a week?

I'm just wondering because I like a good homebrew but as I only drink maybe one pint every other day it's taking me forever to get through this keg.

I know some of you brew like madmen making two or three batches a month, it seems like you can't possibly drink it all yourselves. Do you give a lot of it away? Parties? ect!

I probably average 4-6 a day. Fewer during the week but more on the weekends. It usually takes about a month to go through 2 kegs.
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, then to speak and remove all doubt.

Depends on the weather. If it's crappy outside we don't do much and stay at home (which makes more homebrew dissappear). So I'm actually in the range 5-15 with a concentration on the upper part of that range. I get some "help" by bringing it to friends houses and try to keep 5 kinds drinkable at the same time so a 5 gal batch will last a few months. A man has to have his choices.
Every little thing is gonna be alright.

My stock has been low, so I have been subsidizing with store bought beers. Also, SWMBO and I like to go out once or so a week, and I will have beer when we go out. Total beer consumption is higher than homebrew consumption. Now, this fall is a different situation, as I am going to have more brewing time, and will be able to build up my stock.

Last weekend was great. It starter off as just one of those ****ty days at work, combined with moving. Well I had some buddies over and we damn near finished a keg of brown. No moving got done to say the least. When we drink....we really drink.

But, normally I pour a half liter when I get home and call it good for the day.

I've got this great 40oz pitcher that I usually fill up once a day. This seems to keep me satiated most of the time, except on weekends, or brew sessions where consumption may slightly rise.

I'm easily in the 10-15 pint range, and that's being generous. I like to have one on the go most of the time. I wouldn't drink it if it wasn't so good, and it wouldn't be so good if I hadn't found this board...
Hey this is all HBT's fault!! Well, time for a pint.

Once the wind has been broken, it cannot be fixed.

I am generally way too busy to drink much of anything during the week and because Sunday morning is a fairly demanding time mentally I have to watch it on Saturday, that leaves Friday night, Saturday mid-day and Sunday afternoon. Now if I am lucky I have Friday off and I can brew and then I can also enjoy a few beers along the way. Why I have a 20+ gallon system is beyond me!
Before I learned to brew I was poor, sober and lonely. Now I am just poor.

I work shifts so I normally only drink on my daywork week or days off. When I do drink it is usually between 1-4 and normally on the low side. Lately I've been drinking a lot of micro brews though, as my stock is down considerably. I'm looking forward to the lower temperatures so I can start brewing again.
