i mean seriously..
i blew through 5 gallons of porter in under a week, my last oatmeal IPA lasted around 2 weeks (it was a tad over 10%) and the commercial before that lasted me maybe a week and a half... and i don't drink much, maybe 2-3 a night... does this mean i need to brew 2 times a week? i hope so!

2 weeks is about the norm for me to kick a keg. I drink 2-3 a night as well and get a little help from friends and family. How do I keep them full? I brew bigger batches.

Frequency varies. My first couple kegs were polished off in less than a week each, but since I started brewing weekly I have way more beer than I can go through...it's gotten to the point where I don't have enough fermentation vessels to keep up, much less cornies. Been sans a brew day for two weeks because of it, I'm lonesome when I'm not brewing! I do three week primaries and a week force carbing in the keg so my grain to glass is about a month, but even with two taps on my kegerator I feel like two brews a month is pushing it these days.

Then again, there's all that mead and skeeter pee to keep people occupied...
