Poll: How Often Do You Homebrew?
Like all our prior blog polls, this post takes a moment to memorialize the results we recieved on the most recent blog poll. The readers' responses to the question "How Often Do You Brew Beer At Home?" are presented below.
Total Votes: 25
This past year, my brewing frequency has dropped from being in the majority (ever 2-3 weeks) to once ever 2-3 months. While the number of open kegs used to drive my brew days, it seems the new house and other life activities have moved me to the right on the above chart. Certainly more so than I would like.
In rolling up the poll results, I wanted to hear what people are doing to make their brew days more efficient, and therefore more frequent. We've all had one or two brew days that never got off the ground as the 'effort' to pull out all the equipment and dedicate ~6 hours was enough incentive to procrastinate. That seems to be happening to me more than I would like. So how do you make the brew day easier? What tips or equipment have made your brewing more efficient?
Let us know what you think. And if you are reading this, our next blog poll is up awaiting your participation.
"Beer, if drunk in moderation, softens the temper, cheers the spirit, and promotes health.
