I checked both, because on some rare occasions I will do an extract batch when brewing at a neighbor's house - probably less than twice a year - I am all grain all of the rest of the time.

Wasn't sure what you meant.  Electric vs. Gas?  Indoor vs. Outdoor?  All grain vs. Extract?  Batch vs. Fly vs. BIAB?  Glass vs. Plastic vs. Stainless fermentation?  Or all of the above?

Pretty broad question, are you all-grain or extract brewing?

Sorry, I didn't see that it was a survey using the tapatalk app.

Yeah, I noticed that this morning, you can't see that it's a poll.

I checked both, but it's primarily all-grain for me. I use extract for test batches, or if I don't have much time to brew and I'm jonesing to get a quick batch in.

I've been strictly all grain.  Nothing against extract...just haven't though of doing it since I switched.

Been AG for a long time, with the exception of small extract batches now and then to try out new hops.

I checked both. I enjoy making about 2 extract batches a year. Thinking about making some extract sour batches in the near future. Love my all grain brews though.

I checked all grain, but that's only the last 10-12 batches. Just 14 months ago I was extract and I will be revisiting my first extract batch around the anniversary of my brewing in june

Not looking good for the extract brewers here...can't believe I'm the only one out of almost 40 brewers that have responded!

Mashing in a Coleman cooler (ala dennybrew.com) really is pretty easy, man.  Make your own extract to your own specs- it's better !!

Cost is the sole reason I don't brew extract. An extra 1.5 hours is worth the price for me.
