I started in March. Best as I can remember I brewed 20 beers, 5 wines and 3 meads.
I'm surprised to see some you guys who I thought were old timers only started this year, as well.

16 batches for me this year. Bought a kegerator in June and production picked up after that. Probably did 12 of those batches from June through the end of the year.

19 batches this year. I was on hiatus over the summer because I was moving. Then production started up slow asI waited for a couple batches of mead to cycle through.

8 - but I didn't start until late October/ealy November. Roughly 40-43 gallons (some were 5.5 gallons). Brewed my 8th and final 2006 brew yesterday afternoon - Sorachi Saison.

Resolutions for 2007:
Brew 20+ batches
Brew an Apfelwine
Never use extract again, except for priming and starters.
Brew the same beer multiple times and get the same result.
Get a kegging system and give up bottling.
Get a recipe (or two) down enough to taste good enough to be our 'house brew'

I ran into a bit of a lull a few months ago (spending more time posting that brewing). Also took a little while getting my AG setup all in order, that slowed me down. I think I was around nine or ten batches for the year, starting in April. I'm averaging about one a month. I've been doing more like one every two or three weeks lately, a pace I'll try to keep up until the stockpiles are fully replenished.

I got about 6 batches under my belt in 3 months since I started... First batch (which I brewed before this website, many brewing books, etc.) was not oh-so good, but the rest have been great!

I'm a madman.

I learned how to brew in July. So I basically had 6 months out of the year. During that time, I brewed up 23 5-gallon batches, or 115 gallons.

Good god, my beer room is stocked to the ceiling (literally) with cases of brew. I've been giving it away to everyone. How cool is this hobby...


I'm also going strong during the winter months. I've learned that the colder my brews are during fermentation and clarification, the better they are in the end. A couple of the ones I brewed in the summer had this ucky estery thing, probably from the heat, and the fact that they were extract brews. Since I moved to PM and AG, and since it got colder, the beers have gotten much better. So, following in the grand tradition of the Biere de Garde (beer for keeping), I'm stocking up on brew during the winter, to last me through summer. I'll still have my lagerator that fits one carboy, so I won't be entirely non-brewing, but it will definitely cut down on my rate, since I'll have to wait until one batch is completely finished before I brew another.
