Sometimes I get exactly 2 cases, but about half the time it's more like 45 bottles. It kind of bugs me when it doesn't come out to 48. Sometimes I put matching caps on empty bottles just to fill up the case and make it look like a full one. Am I a bit on the obsessive compulsive side?

nah, makes the boxes easier to carry - more balanced, less banging around of the bottles and you are able to stack them. Plus, you have clean bottles ready for your next bottling session.

I'm averaging fifty-one 12oz bottles per batch in my first five batches. But none of those ever went to secondary. I'm thinking that extra racking causes you to lose a beer or two. My next few batches will probably average less, now that I've gone to two stage.

Average 54 x 375ml bottles (20.25 litres).
Normally brew 23-25 litres at a time.
