6 months ago I had over 1000 bottles but I've been reducing that number by giving a few away to friends and selling a few. I'm finding that 16 kegs is becoming a limiting factor so some of the bottles may go back into commission...
If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!

Enough 12 ouncers to bottle 7 five gallon batches (53x7=371). The empties are up in the ceiling of my garage. I usually have about half of them full at any given time. Gotta have some surge capacity in case I go on a brew-a-thon.

I have only 2 corny kegs. That's where I need to put some dollars towards. Even though I only have a single tap, one or two extra would allow me to always have a brew aged, carbed, and ready to go at any time.

I have 2 kegs and a few cases of 12oz bottles for storing capacity at this very moment. However, my brother lives out in the sticks and they don't offer recycling out there. He stores all his bottles until he can get them to a recycler. If I took all his stored bottles, he has at least 3 full garbage cans plus about 15 empty cases. He probably has 2000+ bottles available to me. This is just 12ozers. What can I say, my bro loves his beer!
