Good deal! I'm working on a pipeline myself. Just got my Amber Ale bottled, got an "American Light" in the primary. The worst part, no home brew ready to drink.
I'm worrying like CRAZY over here!

Hahaha, what do you have going in your pipeline?

Now comes pipeline step 2. (didn't know there was a step 2 did you?)

emergency crap.
take $50-$60 to your LHBS or sit at the computer with your online supplier of choice.

pick up:
a backup hydrometer
a backup thermometer (even if you have a metal dial one)
a couple packs of wide use dry yeast
a pound of priming sugar
6oz of any bittering hop 8-11%
6oz of any noble hop 4-5%
a small bag of caps
2 3lb bags of DME, you're not buying a batch now. light or exra light works with everything, dark is nice to have on hand too, just close your eyes and grab.

this will fix 90% of problems that come along later, just rotate the stuff occasionally.

Got 10 gallons of my MO SMaSH about to get kegged. My wee heavy and old ale are still in process. I have one partial keg of the first batch of the MO SMaSH on tap now as well as my dark cream ale along with my English Brown ale carbonating (the other keg of that kicked last night). The one open spot in the brew fridge is reserved for a keg of the fresh MO SMaSH. I have three other kegs in reserve right now. Plus I'm brewing next weekend (6 gallons to kegs). Not sure if that will be my caramel cream ale or mocha porter.

For ingredients I'd get at least a pound, or two, of hops, at least a packet or two of your more common yeast (what YOU like to use), 1-3# of DME for starters and enpugh grain(s) to make most of your batches. There's something comforting knowing that you have over 200# of base malt in inventory as well as enough other grains for most of your recipies.

I have been homebrewing for only about 6 months now and finally have a viable pipeline of brew coming along. Seems that in order to keep my pipeline full I have to have one beer in the fermenter at all times and bottle a 5 gal batch about once every 3 weeks.

Thought I had a pipeline going until family party at Easter when my family drained my keg of Wit!

I'm still trying to get the pipeline rolling. My first beer was bust, but finally whittled it down, 2nd beer was awesome, but its almost gone. 3rd beer is in bottles (done at end of month) and 4th beer is in fermenter. Once I bottle the 4th batch, I'm going to start my fifth a week later.

I'm Moving January of next year, so I'm wondering when I should quit brewing. I might try to squeeze a couple of quick fermenting beers in towards the end of my time here.
