I've just done a tally on what I've brewed this year.
I'm sitting on around 1000 litres brewed this from 41 brews.

That is a scary thought. Around 20 litres a week. I had quite a bit of help during the rugby season and world cup though.

Beers,
Doc

Played strong fellas, done fine (as Jack Gibson used to say). I thought I was bad (certainly my wife does) and so far I've only brewed 290 litres this year. Obviously I'm not even trying. You blokes are an inspiration... :lol:

My name is Shawn and I have (marginally less of) a problem...

Good Day
I was a bit surprised when I did the sums and found that I have brewed 56 22L
batches this year. However I usually mash two lots at once and this only adds about 30 minutes to the brew day.
I better start drinking some of it.

Ok, I have to ask Jeff.

At 64 litres a week has it moved from a hobby to an obsession ?
Or are you brewing stouts etc and it is your only source of food :lol:

Jesus, guys. based on what you guys brew/drink, I'm going to invest in the liver transplant black market, because it's obviously going to be a growth industry!

I have brewed 20 batches this year for about 460L of beer. Not a gob-smacking amount, but enough to supply myself and any household guests all year without having to buy one case of commercial beer. I'm happy with that! :D

14 batches, around 300 ltrs, all batches were different recipies. Will probably start repeating some of the better ones next year. Haven't done a wheat yet, will try this as soon as I'm more comfortable with propagating liquid yeasts.

I estimate about 200 litres. Not nearly enough time as well as some bad brews early in the year dampening my enthusiasm, meaning I didn't brew enough even when I had time... My partial mashes are improving now, so I have enthusiasm by th bucket load, but now that Summer's here I have a 23C brewing room :( 23 should be OK for Belgian Dark Ales, so I might put on one or two during the summer to mellow out for autumnal imbibement.

41 brews for 900 l. BUT, I had no stocks at the start of the year and I now have about 300 l in bottles and conditioning containers, so I only drank 600l. That makes me feel much better.

I reckon this is a great thread. Maybe around December each year the AHBers can tally up and put the amount they have brewed over the last 12 months.
Admins, any chance of making this a sticky thread, then just before Chrissie each year we can add up everyones brews and see how many litres we've made and enjoyed, shared with family friends etc.
Just a thought. We may be pleasantly suprised at the amount. :D :D

cheers

Thanks to all the people on this forum and the guys at Goliath for their advice and inspiration

Cheers,

As I said once before

Somethings should never be tallied up

This is one of them , as well as "how much did you spend on brewing this year?"
