Default How Long Have you been brewing.

Just curious to see how long some people on the forum have been brewing. I have been brewing for almost a year. Ive got 11 batches, and one batch of Apfelwein under my belt. Not as much as Id like to brew, but Im kicking it up slowly but surely. I read posts on here, and there is so much knowledge going throughout this board that I often wonder, "man how long has this guy been brewing?" So just curious how long everyone has been brewing.

I have been brewing since July of 2006 if you include Mr. Beer. Started 5 gallon batches in DEC 2006. All total, I have about 10 batches, but will up production when I start doing AG batches in a couple of weeks.

I bottled my 1st brew a stout on 1/8/07, I gave (2) 22 oz.'s to a buddy who sort of told me how to do it. He brought them over a couple days ago to show me what letting them condition a long time would make. It was nice to drink some of the first brew I ever did! But I could not tell that much difference between letting them bulk condition in primary for a month and bottle conditioning for a year.

First brewed some three batches in 2003/2004, quit, then started back Nov '07, have brewed three batches this go around. Just ordered ingredients for two more batches so I guess I'll go past last time. Lots of folks on here lots longer.

1991, until about 2003. Took a few years off.
Stumbled on this site last year, got the bug again, and started kegging and brewing more than I used to (7 batches in 6 months). Did my first all grain batch yesterday...

Since about November of 2007, initially with a Mr. Beer kit, now with real equipment (albeit in small batches).

I'm not really sure- maybe 2 or 3 years ago. I started with wine, and mead, and then tried a Beer Machine. I did two batches with the Beer Machine and then started with extract brewing with steeping grains. I've been doing all-grain since December '06.

1 1/2 years and almost 50 batches. I went in with both feet and was already running.
Without a doubt the best hobby for anyone who REALLY likes good beer
