    Grott, you are brilliant! It's those salads with quinoa that's been the problem!

    280L into the fermentor over 7 brews. I'd put 12L lost to yeast, so 268L consumed and not all by me.

    I would have got to 2000L :rolleyes:, but I did dry July this year, so....

    Well I just laid down 18L of best bitter this morning. If I keep up this rate throughout 2018 I'll end up brewing 2190L.

    23 batches @ 23l each = 530lish

    Thats pretty scary to calculate... I would have given away some, but maybe 50l max.

    Despite that, I don't plan to brew any less, I fucking love it!

    11 batches 20 to 23l each so say 240ish L

    I did buy a house in May so had a month before moving and month after with no brewing.also a few too many stretches with the fermenter empty as I was busy

    need to slash my commercial beer budget this year to save some $ for house upgrades so need to step up that yield

    I believe I've done 24 batches at ~21L each.
    So around 510L, I'd say.
    OTOH, I think my maximum drinking volume guesstimate would be ~300L for the year, so apparently I've dished out 100-200L of beer to the public. I'm a charity!!

    Numbers are just that, and for me prolly around - 4-500L but was short of a pale or quaffa a few times. I aim to stay ontop of that this year, have more taps, and presure ferments close up brew lengths.

    Most importantly, 2017 was the year I made the change from single batches to double batches! So that's 2 x 19L x 8 brewdays... 304L, which also stacks up pretty well against me having 1-2 pints every night.

    So the tally I have is 854L in my brew book some of that was collaboration brewing with a mate so he probably took 120L or there abouts with him. I have taken some kegs into work with me for Friday arvo beers but still a very solid effort. Never the less didn't come close to grott. I only have around 4 half full kegs so probly 40L not consumed.

    By my records I didn't get a brew day will the 6/2/17 but on that day I got 146L to make up for it.

    Just doing kits and bits some 3Kg grain additions to 50L brews but that's as far as I've gone.

    851 litres a 37 x 23 l batches, just a bit short on last years effort.all consumed in my neighborhood
    Having a son just come back from University in Minnesota USA, with a renewed taste of IPA's and other Ales is going to put pressure on my supplies in 2018. on a positive note he is real keen to learn how to brew.

    Santa gave me a 60L fermenter last Christmas so I doubled my batch size for 2017. As a result I brewed an average of 45L every other week or so. So hovering around the 1,000L mark roughly.

    I drink about two long necks most days so let's call it 500L personal consumption for 2017. By my calculations that leaves about 650 bottles not drunk by me.

    On a completely different topic, I made a lot a friends this year

    ~3000L last year, won’t be anywhere near that this year as we are knocking the house down which means no brewing for 6-9 months :(

    Sounds like you'll only have 1,000L of brew to get you through the year!

    552L, which averages to just under 1 23L batch per fortnight. My New Years resolution is to brew 1 batch a week average, so hopefully double the production, brew more styles and consistently produce the house beers

    I must add (in case my health insurance is watching :eek:) That my brews are getting longer time turnovers. I cant get around to brewing for a while yet but 5 of those 2017 brews will last me until February by the looks of it. The cider maybe years. That is really cool actually because doing mostly 40lt = 2 keg brews the second keg is always the best after conditioning at ambient for a while. Brewing hard neer end of year was successful to plan.
    I am impressed with aging/conditioning longer if possible. As long as its a good beer when new to start with etc.
