I just got done with my first mini-marathon brew session a bit ago. Ran to the LHBS as soon as they were open at 10. Had my first strike water on the gas at 10:40. I brewed another batch of Edworts Haus Pale Ale, bottled a cream stout and washed its yeast during that brew, then brewed a Two Hearted clone. These were my second and third AG batches. Cleanup was done at 8:30 tonight. Both beers are already bubbling away.

I'm tired....

I'm curious, because I guarantee there are people here who have done triple- and quad-batch days. What's the most you've done in a day?

And I looked, and behold, a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and hell followed with him

Primary: Belgian Golden, English Mild, Watermelon Wheat
Oak Barrel: Old Ale II
Kegged: Coconut Porter, Old English Ale (Oak Barrel)

Transferred two batches from 2ndaries to bottles, transferred two batches from primaries to 2ndaries, brewed up two batches and refilled the primaries.

Sadly, the most I've done in a day was clean 4 kegs, transfer two batches to kegs, all while brewing a 10g standard batch, and a 5g higher gravity batch. Which, now that I type it out, sounds like a lot more than I thought. I need days like that more often! I'd be the brew-king!

i helped my friend who "converted" me do back to back 10g all grain once and we transferred maybe 6 fermenters around at the down times... that was a LONG day!

I got nothing compaired to all of you. I have brewed two batches at once while in college (two partial boils on an electrict stove at the same time.) Due to my brew schedule trying to keep up with my drink schedule, I typically brew and bottle at the same every two to three weeks. One day, when I am no longer in an appartment brewing on my (my wifes) stove and using the bath tub to clean up everything, I will hopefully have a better "I did this, this and that" story to share.
Drinking - red ale, Honey Wheat, Chamomile Ale, Coriander Mead., Chocolate Porter & aging 6-pack of Smoked Porter
Kegged - Hefeweizen & 80 minute IPA

Here's everything used on that day..

I've also brewed a stovetop batch and bottled 2 on the same day.

Brewed two batches and bottled one. I guess that isn't too extreme.
