What's the most # of batches you did in a day?


I just bumped it up to 2 brews this past Sunday (745am to 4pm) and it was a nightmare on my feet and back, but worth it (rampup for my keezer).



What's the most you've brewed in a day?

I did 1 1/2. I had some left over sparge and more hot water so I ran off a little more than 2 gallons, added some DME and attempted to make an IPA. It came out very weak. I didn't like the first one I tried and am letting them condition a little longer before I declare a failure. I do think it is good enough to blend with another beer though.

Three 5 gal batches and they were all AG. It sucked and the beer wasn't all that good (two were decent, one was wretched and ended up being a dumper).

I brewed from 6AM to to 10PM if I remember right. Since I only have a cooler, which I BIAB in, and a turkey fryer, there was a lot of downtime waiting for things to heat. I remember sparging in plastic buckets and heating up water on the kitchen stove...Temperature regulation was also a pain in the neck afterward since I don't have a fermenting fridge and only use water baths.

Never again, unless I get an automated setup, which I doubt I ever will. I always brew the same stuff and there's no need to have such huge quantities of it on hand. I also do not brew 5gal batches anymore.

2 on average. This last Sunday I finished a berliner weisse that I started a sour mash on Friday night, then brewed 2 more brews (all grain). I thought 2 was a long day lol 3 just drained me.

I've done 2x10gallon AG batches once. Didn't seem so bad. Just a long time.

Most I've done is bottle and brew in a single day, which I've done a few times. I'm planning a big barleywine soon which is going to have a second runnings beer, though. I just have to figure out where to put the second beer while the first is in the brew kettle.
