I have five gallons of Russian Imperial Stout, five gallons of Oatmeal Stout, five gallons of Belgian Golden Strong and five gallons of Schwartzbier in fermenters in various stages of maturity. Wife and I finished last two homebrews last night. Twenty gallons and soonest its ready is three weeks.

Anybody else do this to themselves?

I always seem to have more than I can drink. You're welcome to pop over and give me a hand.

I'm about there, have 8 beers left in bottles, 5 gallons in the fermenter, 3 gallons of apfelwein conditioning, and 5 gallons of fizzy yellow in tap a draft bottles that are earmarked for a party next month. Those 8 are not going to last until I bottle my fermenting batch. Going to have to get a case of something to bridge the gap.

It happens quite often. In the Spring and Late Fall it's hard to get time to brew because of other responsibilities. I'm down to a half keg that we are currently finishing off. I have a Saison that will get kegged in about three weeks. In Secondary I have a Foreign Extra Stout going with Brett C (ready in August or September). I also have a Wee Heavy (ready in October) and an IIPA (Ready when I just can't wait anymore, but I'd like to hold it until October) aging in kegs and an Old Ale aging in bottles that will be ready sometime after October. It looks like October will be a great month, but we aren't anywhere close to October.

Me Too!

I guess that is one advantage of living around BMC drinkers!

I'm almost in that same boat. About half a dozen bottles left and only brewing this afternoon. I am brewing three 6 gallon batches this week though, with a possibility of a few small test batches.

The soonest my pipeline will be alive again is around 4 weeks.
Political correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rapidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
