    Re: Whats on Tap right now

    Propensity Pilsner - a Charlie P honey lager recipe
    Chocolate Raspberry Porter
    Scottish Ale - smoked beer
    Munich Helles
    Spotted Cow - recipe found on Brewersfriend (my current favorite)

    I also have a few bottles left from 4 or 5 different recipes that I'm slowly emptying for ever!

    I'm a bottle-baby, nothing on tap. Plenty ready to drink, though!

    That list would take a while. Most recent debut was a Kentucky Common served in honor of some obscure horse race last weekend.... I have (in no certain order):
    - Guinness-style stout
    - Pre-Prohibition American Pale Ale
    - Patjesbier (Westvleteren Blonde Clone)
    - Piwo Grodziskie
    - Raspberry Red Ale
    - Sourdough Blonde
    - Schwarzbier
    - Belgian Saison
    - Two-Year Old Chocolate Cherry Wee Heavy
    - Two point five year old Doppelbock
    - Pumpkin Peach Belgian Blonde
    ...and the list goes on!

    How many bottles do you have, Nosy? Empty or full, have you done an inventory lately?

    Re: Whats on Tap

    Yup. 2 22 oz bottles a night takes a fortnight for me alone to kill, too. And really any more than that, I feel it the next morning.

    I've got about 200 bottles myself. I wouldn't be surprised if Nosy has 1,000. I'll be getting rid of most of my bottles. Some homebrewer somewhere around here will be happy.

    Re: Whats on Tap

    Sorry to derail your thread, but are they 12 oz or 22? Pretty much every bottle I have, I bought empty. I have a few 22s that were full when I bought them.

    Re: Whats on Tap

    I made that decision 20 years ago when I first started homebrewing. No way was I going to clean 53 twelve ounce bottles when I could clean 29 twenty two ounce bottles. But now I'm down to one container, and I return you to your thread!!

    Re: Whats on Tap

    I have a bunch of bottles - a combination of 12's and 22's. When I bottle a batch, it usually works out to a case of both, with a few extras. The extras generally end up in Sierra Nevada-style "stubbies". My average consumption is about 12 ounces per night regardless of which size bottle is open so a bomber is a two-night affair for me. SWAMBO and I put on several "beer disposal events" throughout the year to get rid of the excess and I provide beer to a few others' functions throughout the year. Once in a while I let it all hang out and have two beers a night.

    You're clearly more of a brewer than a drinker. Reminds me of those shows I used to see where they had 2 man teams for RC airplanes. One built it and the other flew it.
