I try to have 6-7 carboys in the 5-6 gal range continiously rotating. Honey amonts is a problem. But yes I looked up the home brew limit in Colorado.

I found 250 gal a year/ family. If I brewed 5 gal batches that's 50 batches, I would need to bottle 1 batch every week or so to do this. And start one every week or so.

Do not have the stamina or time for that much. Now if I had 10 gal barrels then this would be more like 25 batches a year, every other week. More like it.

So yeah, I'm good for now.

I have currently: chocolate Mead, Chocolate Mint, Blueberry Lemon, 3 Honey batches that going to oak at different toast levels and a pumpkin hazelnut in the primary. Planing on starting a Strawberry/w orange blossom honey, Mango mead/w orange blossom honey, Blueberry Basil, an a Jasmin Bamboo mead. Then I suppose it will be fall again.
