You guys are hardcore all the way. I've brewed the 8-8-8 and that's it so far. The fact I am not brewing again until my AG equipment is put together is part of the reason for my delay, but even afterward I don't see myself brewing more than 1-2 times a month.

3 so far. I'd be doing more, but...um...I have plenty as it is. 20 cases of 12's. 12 cases of large-formats. 15 gallons in carboy, ready to go into the kegerator that should be completed within a week, depending on parts shipment. The wife's going out of town next Saturday, so I'm thinking 2 or 3 batches that day.

#5 coming up this weekend, but it wasn't all mine.

10 gals 08-08-08 RIS
5 gals Dusseldorf Altbier
10 gals ESB
10 gals Belgian Abbey

This weekend - 5 gals Nut Brown, pitched on the ESB yeast cake



BTW - I just wanted to point out that your poll is jacked. If you've brewed 4, you've got 2 choices. :p

I've started five 5-gallon batches so far. In chronological order;

Apfelwein
Oktoberfest
Blueberry Wheat
Sweet Traditional Mead
Oatmeal Stout

I plan to keep pace at a batch a week throughout the year. I'll probably miss some weeks here and there, so SWMBO and I will like come in right around our yearly limit of 200 gallons ;).

I got:

08-08-08 RIS
Leftovers Imperial IPA
Oatmeal stout

I just realized that once I bottle the RIS and my IPA, I am going to have a lot of empty kegs... I hope that bulk order comes in soon, I need to get cracking!:rockin:
