224L of yummy beer, it took over 9 hours. I need a bigger HLT and more power to run it to shorten the day a bit. But I don't think I'll need to do it again.

Only ever done a single biab brew... but I make that brew count ;)

Just put 60L of Galaxy Summer Ale to ferment... then turned around, rebrewed, and filled the same 4 cubes (17L each) with a CPA Clone

68L knock-out... but 120L of beer 'made' in a single day ;)

When I finish my new 100L mash tun, then I'll be able to pipeline the brews ;)

This is a great effort. The ammount of L can depend on the size of your equipment. But here you have done 5 brews in a row. Im impressed, the most i can manage is 2. Sometimes i think after 2 why not do another, but then i have another beer and forget about that silly idea. 2 Batchs in 1 day is enough for me. Maybe one day ill do 3.

Does anyone know the most you can brew in a week/month/year before the govt technically wants to licence you??

I assumed it was 23l a week (5 gallons in the old scale) given thats the standard fermenter size.

I regularly put 2 batches in a week and have always thought I was in breach of a draconian law

I remember reading on here quite a while back that there was no volume rule. It was as long as it was for personal consumption, and you were not selling any.

Do you have any links, as my system can squeeze out 112L, so I would need to limit the size of my brews.
