Just pitched a very active starter, London Ale yeast, into today's batch. I checked my records and see that I only made 8 ten gallon batches this year. Two of them were my 1st Belgian beers.
I did make one 6 gallon wine kit.
What did ya'll produce this year?

I don't keep accurate records, but I would have to say I am right there with you on the production amount. I am lucky if I can brew once a month (10 gallon batches). More like once every six weeks.

Our homebrew club is implementing a monthly competition in 2010. This will prod me into brewing more often...hopefully.

The Brew fest really kicked it up for me this year.

Total is 143 gallons of beer, 12 gallons of wine, and 5 of ABC.

Nine 10 gallon batches and 15 gallons of wine for me.
I have three more wine kits for later.

Seventy-five gallons of beer (I'm including my braggot in this category, as it's very ale-like), five gallons of mead and six gallons of wine (my first attempt at that beverage) this year. This seems to be close to my average output for the past few years. I might like to brew a little more, but I share a rather small house with five other family members.

I don't have accurate records for 2009, as I've been trying out different kinds of brewing software, but I estimate just over 40 batches, so about 800 liters, or 211 US gallons.

Edit: I have been starting to double-batch my brew days, which is a great time saver. I save almost exactly 50 % on the second batch, not to mention having to clean only once.

If I can squeeze in another batch between Christmas & New Year's, I'll be at 60-1/2 gals for 2009. Eleven 5-1/2 batches.

After five straight years of brewing every other week, on average, 2009 was both a disappointment and a needed break. Seven sessions, the last of which was February 28th - 35 gallons, 10 beer varietites. I feel like a dormant volcano.

18 ten gallon batches....after Tuesday, I am taking off until the New Year, so hope to have some more in primary. My mother in law will be here for the duration, so I may hit my 200 gallon limit for the New Year by 1/2/09. I need to try one of the wine kits.

I've only brewed 6 5-gallon batches this year. I 'm scheduled to brew a Dunkle on Saturday, but I may be to exhausted. Holidays and working 6 days a week can wear out this 46 year old.

I brewed 1 final 10 gallon batch before selling off my system on January 3rd. I built a new 5 gallon system, and have done 10 batches on it. I was hoping to brew more often for more variety, but the best laid plans ...

60 gal beer, 5 gal mead, 5 gal ABC.

I'm off next week, so hope to get in one more batch before the new year.

Not a damn thing all year. Just looked at my records I haven't brewed since last November.

Between a week of furlough here and there and walking on pins and needles the weeks I was at work I couldn't justify much "frivolous" spending this year. Next year is looking up in a major way, in that we look to be so busy that time may become a factor instead of fearing for my job, but that's a good problem to have.

In fact, the future is looking bright enough that I bought a 1/2 bbl of SNCA myself this year instead of splitting it with a certain someone who shall not be named, lest he let his half sit another year.

About 60 gallons of beer, 5 gallons of cider, and 6 gallons of wine (also my first batch). I have an 80/ that just finished primary and plan to make Skot's Traquair House clone in the next few days. I also want to brew the stout that I've been putting off for a couple months, and maybe one or two more before Jan 4th.

My usual 49.9 gallons in GA. My neighbors brewed another 20, and possibly 25 if I, I mean they, brew again this weekend before the 1st. My neighbors were on record pace until I took my 4 month bathroom break.

Chris,

I know you were working on remodeling your bathroom, but when I read your post I initially took you literally and laughed out loud. 4 months is a long time to be sitting on the pot. It reminded me of the scene from Austin Powers--"who does number two work for?!"

199.9 gal and that's my story and I'm sticking too it.

Actually I have no idea but it's unfortunatly not close to that. I'll have to look tomorrow while I'm brewing and add it up.

Well Vance and ChriSto, there seems to be some question about the allowable max here in Georgia. I thought it was 100 for one or 200 for a family of two or more.........not that it matters much, but any idea what the legal limit is?

Think that's correct Connie.

Just went through the brew log and for 09 it was 175 gal of beer, 5 gal of ABC, and 5 gal of cider. Better than I thought. And still legal.

Not so much. I'd say 12 5 gallon batches, give or take. ~60 gallons.

My chest freezer just died (dammit), so I'll be slow next year until I replace it. Bye bye lagers until then.

I lost my precise records when my computer crashed, but according to my numbering system I brewed ~50 gallons in 2009. That's less than half of what I brewed in 2008; I'll have to work harder to make 2010 a more productive year!

Connie-

The official limit in Ga is 50 gallons and can only be brewed by the head of household. And . . . it must be consumed within the house it was made. I've had a year where I and my neighbors on either side of me made 49.9 gallons apiece ;)

Of course I don't think the state is really after a couple of homebrewers as long as they don't flaunt it.
