How to get a good pipeline of beer built up?

When you run out of beer that is not a good thing. We wanted to provide some tips and advice to keep the beer pipeline flowing!

This is a question we get quite often, especially from new brewers. You want to keep the homebrews flowing but you are not sure how much you need to brew or should be brewing.

Well first off that depends on how much you drink. If the average person drinks 2 beers a day, that would be about 1 of our 740ml bottles. So 1 batch would last you 11 days.

The easiest way to get a pipeline of amazing homebrew built up is to brew more! What we have seen work for our customers is usually brewing about 4 batches a month. That would give you a little more than a bottle day of homebrew, but you might want to have a few extra or share with friends.

In order to do this, you will need to have 4 fermenters and then make sure you have enough bottles as well.

The brewing is the easier part figuring out carbonating and conditioning time can be a little difficult as that varies from batch to batch. But the best way to get a pipeline going is just to brew and brew and brew. The more batches you brew the more beer you will and the better you will be at the brewing process.

A few tips to help you along the way.

Don’t think about what you want to drink now, think about what you want to drink 4-6 weeks from now.

Make sure to always label your bottles and your batches so you know when your beer was brewed and the fermenter it came from. This can help you track down any infections or anything that might arise in a certain fermenter.

Be patient. Building up a pipeline of beer takes a little bit of time, but once you get it going you will have your own bottle shop in your house.
