Since I keg the rule is simple: float one, brew one. Generally, I only have one keg conditioning and 2-3 online. I also have wine and ciders in kegs, but mostly I use party taps on them.

Ha ha, this is a funny question to me as I have three sons in the ranch house in their twenties. No matter how much we brew, we are always buying beer.

We have to actually bury beer to save it for a year. Unless it's nasty of course like the 2007 vintage corn stalk beer. Or the 2008 Dandylion near wine, etc.
Newer, better, more streamlined sig as per the forum police.

I keep four kegs on tap, and I always like to have two fermenting. Plus I have a few long term aging. With three small kids, I never know when I might not get a chance to brew for a while. For now I can get it done every 3-4 weeks, and if that happens to build up a backlog, I'll take care of that when the time comes.

Generally, between 50 and 70 gallons in kegs. Six kegs in the kegerator (four on tap) and the rest bulk aging.

Also, there is usually about 10 gallons fermenting.
