16 American ales, including 9 cream ales and 5 wheats
17 pale ale/IPAs (including 8 red or black IPAs)
5 SMaSHes
6 wines, including 2 barleywines and 2 oatwines

Small batches ftw! At least half of those 200 are 2.5-gallon batches, and most of the rest are 1-gallon batches. I've done about 5 5-gallon batches, probably 10 32-ounce batches, and a few 12-ounce batches. I figure the more I can brew, the more things I get to try, and the more experience I get.

I rechecked and it is 287 not 237. Most 5 gal and 10 gal with some 15 gal and my last lambic barrel refill was 18 gal on my high grav system.

That is a very impressive list!! One of my brewing regrets is that for a couple years I didn't write down my recipes or track them in any kind of way so I'll never be able to count how many batches I've done.

Another list! I've used these hops, these numbers of times. I haven't done this before, and I wasn't expecting it to look exactly like this. Now I know which hops I should go out and buy in quantity. (Currently the only thing I have more than a few ounces of in my freezer is Magnum.)

If I have a choice between using a hop I've used before and one I haven't ... well, one of the main reasons I brew is to have beers that aren't like things I've had before ...

And yes, I plan to use Citra for my next IPA.

I started brewing in 1997 but I took a break and did not brew from 2006 until early 2015. Long story short, I used to own a homebrew store, didn’t do well, went out business and was bitter and angry for awhile.

I started out brewing 5 gallon batches:

Irish Stout - 7
APA - 6
Mild Ale - 6

Trippel - 3
American Barleywine - 2
Blonde Ale - 2
Cream Ale - 2
Dark Lager - 2
HSV - 2
Pre-Prohibition Lager - 2
Weizen - 2
Witbier - 2
Belgian Strong Dark - 1
Cider - 1
Dunkelweizen - 1
English Barleywine - 1
ESB - 1
Honey Brown Ale - 1
Munich Dunkel - 1
Pumpkin beer - 1
Rauchbier - 1

5 gallon batches - 97

Then I started brewing 3 gallon batches:

Blonde Ale - 14
American Pale Ale - 8
American Barleywine - 6
American Brown Ale - 6
Imperial Stout - 6
Mild Ale - 6
English Pale Ale - 5
Mead - 5

Ordinary Bitter - 1
Rauchbier - 1
Rye - 1
Scottish 70 - 1
Session IPA - 1
