So everyone here preach's patience and waiting as long as possible to age your booze. So in the spirit of that, what is the oldest beer (or cider, wine, etc) that you brewed that you still have not consumed?

22 months. Old English ale very similar to the 11-11-11 ale. I've had a few tasters, just to be sure all is going well every two months and it is better every time. Going to have it for new years.

4 months is my record so far, but I'm lucky if a keg lasts 2 weeks after it's tapped. 15 gallons a month is average consumption. I have the capacity to brew 10 gallon batches, and need to do more of them, but I really enjoy my 3 brew days a month. Just picked up a few more kegs, so I can put some stuff aside to age for longer.

I admire some of you guys, I doubt I will get any of mine past a year. I'm going to try REALLY hard to keep from drinking the first one I ever bottled, which is an Apfelwein. The trick is keeping it away and my fridge full.

I've had a pumpkin brown go over a year (only one to go over a year). It was gone on Halloween this year (naturally). I have a 12 pack of 12% Belgian strong that will be a year old on the day after X-mas and it may not live a day after that.

Since I just got back into brewing recently, 6 months is my oldest. I am brewing a Trippel this weekend that I'm going to try and hide until the holidays next year.

I have an Imperial Stout coming up on 2 years. My goal is to hit four years for the last bottle.

Have some wine over 3.5 years old.

Oldest beer is coming up on two years (oatmeal stout). I love it.
