    Gday homebrewers. I'm prying a bit here:rolleyes: I know I haven't been using brewers friend half as long as most of you on here but I was on my general brewing report where it gives you a break down of your brewing record liters, number of brews ,type of malts used ect very cool feature!. I've clocked up 7 brews so far totalling 151 liters. I was wondering what you other brewers are tallying in regards to volume brewed? :)

    Kinda disturbed me to see just how much beer I'm brewing and therefore drinking ....think I'll need to step up to 3 booze free days every week

    Totaled up my brew days from last 12 months and its over 450 litres

    Yep it's a good reminder of how much beer you have consumed whilst pursuing your passion of brewing more beer:p. Well it musta been good beer too consume that much;). Mark that's like 1.2lt of beer per day on average good work:D

    I also like it how it details your hop usage and grain usage amounts very cool! I've used Kolsch malt the most and Hellertau mittlefruh as most hops.

    I didn't drink all of it , I usually have 2 booze free days every week but also do enjoy a social beer at the pub so probably consumed far more than that

    Out of 24 brews in the last year we only doubled up on the style twice with 2 IPA's and 2 Cream Ales. This has been the trend for several years.

    I brew a different brew every batch, too many flavors to master

    We have our favorites of course but as the seasons change so do the beers. For example I like IPA's but there are several different sub categories there.
    No sense in getting stuck in a rut.

    one thing to think about 2 to 3 beers a night, a couple of extra once a week thats a possibility of 25 a week easy, and thats on the low side I drink 22 ounce glasses, a five gallon batch which is never a full five in my house makes roughly 45 to 48 12 ounce beers, add a friend or 2 or family at an event and you can see where im going, I hate to be out of home brew, cant stand buying beer :rolleyes:
