A keg lasts about two weeks at our house. I drink a lot of beer, and so does my spouse. Both of us have quite a few glasses every night, although we never drink to where we're buzzed or drunk.

We have three beers on tap, and it seems like I"m changing kegs every week or so.

I give away bottles, as I typically only drink 2-3 beers per week at the most. Yeah, I am a ridiculous lightweight.
Check out the priming sugar calculator, yeast starter calculator, and the beer calorie calculator.

I'm looking at a bottle from batch #2 right now, it's about 3 years old. I typically have gonna through my batches very slowly. I just started kegging though, so I expect that to change. First batch that I kegged lasted about a week and a half. Still need to finish these ~50 bottles of beer that have been sitting around for 1 - 3 years.

I have a keg aging right now. Come July it'll be ready and I bet gone in about a day or two!

I usually try and get 2-3 months out of a batch. Problem is the American Amber Ale I brewed last is too danged tasty and I think it will only last a month. The Cream Ale that followed it is umm well lets just say also tasty.

When I had my kegerator running, i went thru 15 five gallon kegs in 11 months. That is 800 12 oz beers. or 2.5 beers a day. Now that was mostly me and a friend, but we did have some parties in-between. I currently have 8 gallons bottled and Its been about 3 weeks since they were drinkable. I haven't burned too many up though, since I am activly trying not to power thru them and have supplimented some commmercial brews.
