Two AG on a Sunday. Although more time efficient than two separate brew days, it took most of the enjoyment out of it for me. If I had a helper it might make sense to try again.

Two for me, well, technically 2. When I was just starting out, my buddy had the gear and I had the house. So I brewed mine, and then he did his (taking his time I might add), didnt get done until after 2am. Never again. Now i'm just a once-a-day-er.

I've done two extract batches in day, but this was with three brewers and one non-brewer on two burners, so it kind of seemed like there wasn't nearly enough work to go around. By myself the best I've done is bottle and brew on the same day.
The only thing more asinine than stupid rules is the enforcement of rules simply because they are the rules.

Two and it wasn't bad, but I was able to mash the second while the first boiled so they were somewhat concurrent. I've thought about three but haven't tried it yet.

Two all grain batches (6bbls total) in one day. I decided I didn't want to have to come in the next day...should have just cancelled the ride and come in instead.

I've done two (AG) a handful of times, usually when my wife is off visiting her family.

I regularly brew 3 five gallon batches from one mash. So do you count that as one or three?

I'll tell ya whats not a bad brew day at all...doing an extract and all-grain batch in the same day. I have squeezed in an extract batch while waiting for my strike water to heat up and waiting for the 60 min mash on my all-grain batch. It doesn't add much time (if any) to your brew day.
