This is my first thread on here (great site!), and I'm writing because I'm concerned about my well being and the longevity of my first batch.

From the time you brewed it (and/or started drinking it), what's the fastest you've ever drank an entire batch? Doesn't really matter whether or not you shared some of it, but I just want to get a gauge for what how fast other brewers go through it.

I have 6 liters of my nut brown ale left that I brewed about a month ago. My second batch of APA just got bottled, woohoo!

When my family was in town for a visit we killed 5 gallons that day.. There was about 12 of us drinking.. which is really only about 4 beers each.

I would say the fastest I have drank a batch by myself was during football season last year. I tapped a keg of blonde in a little under 3 weeks. Drinking during football... classic!

Every year, I brew 10 gallons for a crawfish boil. We drink it all in a day.

Without sharing an ounce, I killed a 5.5 gallon batch of my Bass Ale clone in 10 days. But it was so damn good!

I drank 5 gallons of BM's Cent Blonde in about 10 days pretty much by myself. It was summer holidays.

It was <4%, so it was fine.

Yes, I'm 24 and I let my mom influence my drinking habits.

Trying tocurrently kill 5 g of a red and the remaing 2-3 gallons of a stout in 2 weeks to free up kegs. This would be a record!
