WBC,

Scaling down doesn't mean scaling back! I simply plan split the batches at this point to experiment with different yeasts. I do also consider smaller batches brewed more frequently so I can see more of a variety of beer. More batches = faster learning & more variety of beer. Pretty sound philosophy. Enjoy your Home Brew, however large your batch. Peace

It's a question of throughput though. There's more coming in (brewed) than going out (drank). I'm lucky enough right now that I find a chance to brew once every couple of weeks. I can't possibly drink a case a week, maybe back in college, but I'd fricking die if I did that now. A twelver a week is much more reasonable. It's not like I don't have the ability to scale back up if I don't find time to brew as often later on, rest assured, I will be in no danger of running out of beer.

Ok, I rest my case. Peace. I just thought you might start to bottle some of it so you have a nice assortment to share and enjoy.

WBC,

Your inventory is very impressive, the variety outstanding. 36 years of home brew, I'll tip my hat to you anytime, regardless of your batch size. Peace.
