Default How large is your pipeline?

I'm just starting to build a pipline and have 8 cornies and 8 five gallon fermentors.

I like heavier beers so long conditioning is a factor for me. I drink about 1 keg or more per week.

...just wondering if I'm about average...

Thx..

Normally about 3-4 filled kegs at a time. One keg a week would kill me.

we go through about 1 keg every 2-3 weeks at my house. I currently have 3 kegs on tap, 3 kegs lagering, 1 batch carbing up, and 10 gallons in the fermenter.

Not enough!!!

A KEG A WEEK?!? I'm not judging you, but DAMNIT BOY!!1

I keep 4 kegs on the gas conditioning in my basement, 2 kegs on tap in the kitchen kegerator, and my fermentation freezer stays pretty busy...

I don't know how you go through a keg a week: That's some impressive drinking, sir! I drink about 1-2 bottles per day.

I've got about 3 whole batches conditioning in bottles right now, 3 more that I have been drinking, 10 gallons in the fermenter, and 5 gallons brewing right now.

We go through about a keg a week or so too. I have a hard time keeping up if I don't brew more then twice (10gal batches) a month. Holiday weekends where I bring some beer camping totally disrupt everything. I understand how you feel. Because right now I have 8 empty kegs and two half full ones on tap. I really need to get brewing.

Personally I don't think a keg a week is terrible. 2-3 beers a day per person during the week. A few extras on Fri-Sun. Especially during the summer hanging out at the pool all day.

I usually hae 4-5 kegs filled. 2 kegs on tap at once with another keg carbonated, chilled and waiting for one to kick. I have 10 working corny's at the moment but drink about a keg every 3-4 weeks. I try to brew 5 gallons every other weeks to keep the pipeline flowing.

If you're drinking with others, then 2-3 per person during the week would make sense. The OP said HE drinks a keg a week. That's a lot
