How much did you brew in 2009?
« on: January 01, 2010, 08:07:44 PM »
I tally up my brewing logs from last year and I brew 25 times and made 125 gal of beer.

How much did you brew last year?

Disclamer:
This topic is not intended to be "I brew more then you".
Look in your logs and have a fun.

21 batches and 99 gallons -- a couple of 3 gallon batches in there. Only one recipe repeated, which I wouldn't have remembered without looking.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

14 five gallon batches.  Honestly looking back I was surprised at how many batches I had made considering I can't brew from late spring to early fall because it's too warm in my house.  I just got a fridge to ferment in so this "no summer brewing" problem has now resolved.

17 five gallon batches and 1 3 gallon batch of mead.  Still have a smoked scotch stout, cali common, and the mead to bottle.  Now that I have deep freezer I hope to brew some lagers this year, thinking about starting with a german pils.

18 one keg batches averaging 5.5 gallons each for a total of 99 gallons

5 two keg batches averaging 12 gallons each for a total of 60 gallons

1 triple keg batch 16 gallons for a total of 16 gallons

So my yearly beer total was 175 gallons, which safely places me with-in the legal limit ;D


Oh yes I also did one 5.5 gallon batch of mead
