It goes in waves depending on what life has in store. I like to try and get 1-2 brews in a month. Sometimes I can squeeze in a 3rd, but usually its the other way and a month goes by where I can’t find a day to brew. 1 to 2x a month keeps me happy and supplied with beer.
It depends for me, May through September I might brew 3 or 4 batches, I’m golfing and camping on the weekends. In October I start ramping up and by the end of November I’m brewing 3 to 4 times a month until about mid March.
I’ve always wished I could brew about twice a month. Occasionally it happens. But I think the overall average for me is one batch about every 2 months. I am going to try to brew every 5 or 6 weeks all year this year.
2 to 4 batches per month, but I have brewed a batch a week for about the last 8 weeks. Partly because I am getting busier at work and I expect I will need to take a break and partly because I am going to Europe for a couple weeks in March and I know I will not be able to brew. But it just occurred to me that I won’t be able to consume either, so stock piling will not be necessary.
I generally keep 6-8 on tap.
I do need to do a couple lagers soon, including an Octoberfest for a true Octoberfest party in my community this year. My first real commission (they are paying for ingredients) so I thought I would brew in March to allow maximum lagering time to be as authentic as possible. Planning to brew 5 gallons of Octoberfest and 5 gallons of a Helles?
