After checking out some on-line pics of a homebrew set-up made out of 55 gal drums, I got to thinking... How many gallons of beer does the average homebrewer produce in a month and what do they do with it all?

I'll start. On average, I make about 15 gal per month. Of that, I supply a keg or two to a bar internal to the office where I work. The rest is for home consumption.

Ok, who's next?

On average Im about 20 gals a month. During Oct and Nov, Ill brew enough so I dont have to brew during the winter. So about 60-100 gals between those two months. Currently Im about halve way to that goal.

I make about 10 gallons or so a month. I am the only one who drinks it, so my stock has built up over the past few months.

Depends on cash flow and time. Last month I brewed 20gls, this month, nothing so far ;)

But I'm also about to get my part of the homebrew club grain order in... 200+lbs of brewing joy!

It all depends on the season for me, In the summer I hardly brew and live off of the stockpiles, from fall to late spring, or whenever tap water gets cool enough for wort chiller to be effective I will brew 15 gallons a month. I'm planning on brewing even more this year and filling every keg I got and then some.

My brew schedule is relly erradic. Some months I brew 50gal others none. Just depends on whats going on. I'm going to pound out about 2 10gal and one 5gal batch Monday. That will be interesting.
