Probably about 120 gallons, not nearly enough since we drank 40 gallons in one day for Oktoberfest.  I had 10 taps last year so I always had really wide variety and never concentrated on any particular style.
This year I'll do better and should brew our (my wife and I) legal limit of 200 gallons. 

How does all that beer get drank? 40 GALLONS in one day? I'm lucky if we go through 5 gallons in 3 months. The curse of living "so far" from the reach of the RATP I guess.
Friends and family drink a lot of it, especially my daughter and her friends.  Not that they come over and pound my beer, but she'll come by with her roommate or some friends a couple of times per week and have a few pints.  I probably have 3 pints almost every day, and we have a few very big parties every year-Mardi Gras, Oktoberfest and Labor Day.  Most of the beers are 4-6% ABV so I'm not talking much strong stuff.  In fact my last keg of Imperial stout took over 2 years to drink.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

I came up unusually short this year compared to years past,  but in any case,  I found the time to cram in 18 batches for a yield of  just under 85 gal.  It was mostly ESB and Pale,   plus the usual double batches of  brews that I age for varying lengths of time before consuming (IPA,  19th century (strong) Stout Porter,  Christmas Burton solera, and Sack Mead).  I also did a couple batches of  mild (in the modern sense)  ale that were very nice during the summer months.

I managed also to try some historical recipe re-creations this past year. 
I generally don't like to use use recipes which are not of my own devising, but If you haven't been to  Ron Pattinson's blog   (http://barclayperkins.blogspot.com)  you owe it to yourself to visit. 
Besides Ron's debunking many of the brew myths that we have been buying into for years, the recipes that have been posted at his blog (which were recreated by Kristen) are pretty phenomenal...incredibly well researched and mighty tasty.

I brewed about 630 gallons since Oct. 1st of this year.   ;D Of course I guess I really don't count.

Since Nov 1, it looks like I'm at about 2300 gal. ;)

Home brewing in 2010, looks like 15 full batches and two halves, for about 90 gal total. My biggest year so far.
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

Batch #282 brewed Jan 3, 2010 and #297 Dec. 26.  So 16 sessions, most of which were 10 gallons.  
A brewed a pretty good variety this year.  Dort Export is still my house lager, brewed it 3 times, Rye IPA twice, Bock twice, Baltic Porter, IPA, Weissen, a Koelsch, an APA, a Wit, a Tripel, a failed Scotch ale that I later pitched Brett B. and one mead.

I lost all my notes but think at least 80 gallons. Plans are to hit it this year.

Losing your notes is a loss worth a few tears in your beers  :'(


I managed to brew 11 times for a total of 58 gallons, plus a 6 gallon batch of mead, 6 gallons of cider, and 15 gallons of wine. 
Homebrewing isn't my obsession, it's my life calling, there's a difference.

I guess what I'm saying is I wish I had more friends  :P

With the move overseas (and the lag time in getting a new brewery set up in my basement) I only got to 5 five-gallon batches: Oktoberfest, Irish Red, Pumpkin Ale, IPA, and a Magic Hat #9 clone. I also did 1 one-gallon batch of a Belgium with Coriander for the MIL.

I rounded out 2010 with two 2.5g test batches in the latter part of December. I bottled both of them today. Do they go on 2011 or 2010?

The IPA is wonderful. Wish I'd done 5g! Oh well I now have new notes (hardcopy) and can replicate it if desired. Starting all over again...  :'(  ::)
