Here I am...... 6 months into homebrewing and 5 pounds heavier from a usually very consistent weight.

I know this is a touchy subject and I don't mean to put down homebrewing in any way.

Be honest, how many of you have put on weight since you started homebrewing?

Haven't been brewing long enough to tell, but I think this hobby will definitely contribute to my girth.

I think better question is who hasn't. I'm up a few pounds.

I also haven't been doing this long enough to tell, but I do know one fact about weight: More caloric intake with no change in exercise will result in weight gain. Same is true for the opposite. So, if you have started drinking more now that you homebrew but haven't started exercising more...you'll be getting fatter for sure!
