Some of ya'll are brewing demons.....4 or 5 in primary, 2 and 3 in secondary and a couple of kegs and bottles to boot. I usually have a "couple" (depending on whose version of a couple you believe....me or SWMBO) at home on Friday's after work and maybe on Saturday evenings.

Back in the days of bottle conditioning, I probably had 1 or 2 in the pipeline and a few cases at all times. Waiting out the bottle conditioning slowed down the entire brew/wait/drink/brew circle. Then came the keg equipment and the keg fridge - and most importantly force capbonation. I've got 5 5 gal cornies and 3 2.5's - i'd say i fluctuate from 2-4 full kegs at all times and 2-3 fermenting.

If it MUCH easier to tear through the homebrew with the keg/fridge system, and it is also a lot easier to distribute to thirsty friends if i need more keg room......

I will buy a lager from time to time (Oktoberfest currently), but I probably average a few HB's every other night. I try to keep 4 cases around at a time, and take 6ers to friends' places. No keg yet

I'm still working on the pipeline after a 7 year sabbatical. I need another fridge or freezer where I can have kegs sitting chilling and carbonating so when one blows on the tripple tapper kegerator, it's a simple trip out to the garage, select a keg, connect it and whalah, beer.

I'll drink 0-4 half pints a day. I have enough kegs that I don't knock back several pints of one ale in a sitting.

If there is a club meeting, I'll take a 4 oz. sample glass and try a couple ounces of a dozen homebrews.

I strictly bottle, so consumption can be easily controlled. I drink one every day (as does my husband) on weeknights, and two or two and a half (we split one) on weekend nights. It's amazing how fast it disappears, even with drinking that amount. I drink store bought only if we're out of homebrew or if there is a special seasonal out.

I guess that's 80 homebrews a month, for the two of us. More if we have company.

A few a day. It's on tap, and I have a hard time walking by it without filling a glass.
