Default Keeping up with consumption

I'm barely keeping my head above water now. I can generally pull off one batch per week and as soon as it's fermented and carbonated we're drinking it. Kegging, which is awesome, turns out to not be so awesome because I'm pulling imperial pints instead of 12 oz bottles. Big difference in the amount of glasses you get out of a keg!! I guess the answer is 2 batches per week until I get ahead.

Sorry, just whining for no reason. Brewing beer is awesome. How do you guys keep up?

My wife says, "Ooh, look at the banana dancing, put that in your post".

I know how you feel. Today I had a day off and wanted to go buy another recipe from the homebrew store. Instead I'm laying in and watching the new HDtv my wife purchase for me and drinking lots of homebrew. I'm so happy

Buying a recipe? Or buying a kit? If that HBS sells "recipes" then that's kinda, well,.. f**ked.

I bot a bunch of US pint glasses and some smaller pils glasses. Those imp pints were draining my kegs to fast.

Instead of 2 a week, why not one 10g a week. Or are you already doing 10g batches?

I'm doing 5 gallon batches right now. I don't have a boil pot big enough for 10 gallon batches. I don't have a fridge for extra consumables right now either so that might be an issue. Guess it's time to start acquiring.

Learn some self control??? lol who am i kidding...

Do 10 gallon batches but do 5 gallons at a time. It's like 2 brews but just the same recipe.... Do you even get a chance to taste your beers when they get REALLY good from conditioning???

I have the opposite problem, I can't drink fast enough to keep up with my brewing. I had a poker night yesterday and was happy to see people hitting up every one of my faucets.

this is why you need a larger brewing system. 15 gallons a week will set you up pretty. sometimes i'll do 3x15 gallon brews in a day

i most often drink from a tasters glass - but that only means you have to make more trips to the tap
