Way to go Denny! Hope I get there someday, really only about 35 batches into my homebrewing career in the last 3 years, but I have no desire to stop anytime soon. By the way, does anyone know what he settled on to brew for number 500? I had posed this to him a couple months ago and he was not certain at the time

I think he said on the podcast that it was going to be his Rye IPA.

Congrats, Denny!

I have no idea how many batches exactly.  I can only guestimate. I usually only keep detailed records of when I tweak a recipe.  When I'm brewing an existing one, I only track the OG/FG on a whiteboard on the fermenter and erase them after.

I didn't track my extract batches, partial mash batches or my first few AGs. I have been tracking pretty solid for 3 batches now.

Wow!  500 batches.  Way to go Denny!

I just plugged batches 250-255 into my recipe list last night.  I've got a ways to go.  I hope to start brewing them next weekend.

Same here. Over the 23 years I've moved several times and lost a couple brewing journals along the way, so I don't have an exact count. But it's (I think) north of 350. I also went back to college twice and brewing was pretty sparse during those years, but not extinct altogether. Regardless, a lot of homebrews have come and gone (figuratively and literally).

Yeah, I've been brewing 21 years.  I slacked off since I scaled up a few years ago.  I brew fewer than 20 batches a year now (probably average more like 15 or 16).  When I used to brew 5 gallon batches, I'd brew 2 in a long brew day since I was already cleaning equipment, so might as well make it worth it.  So, those were probably more like 30-40 batch years.  Paused brewing for about a year when my daughter was born, and again when we moved here.  So, it could be anywhere between 400 and 600 batches.  I used to brew the same things regularly for a long time just for the house and friends, so I didn't log a lot of them.  I've started keeping better records now that I've started judging and entering competitions again the last few years.
