2017 Q1 SheppyBrew Stats

Well, This is embarrassing.

It is almost June and I still have not posted the 1st quarter results of the SheppyBrew Brewery.

Well ... I guess it is time to fix that.

As you may know, the Brewery likes to post quarterly updates on how much we have brewed. You can see all these updates (including the one you are reading right now) by following this link: .

Arctic Vortex Winter Saison

She Who Must Be Obeyed Wheat
Each of these 5 batches was 5 gallons, so I brewed 25 gallons. This puts me on pace for 100 gallons this year.

Last year, I brewed 4 batches for 20 gallons in the 1st quarter and ended up with 95 gallons at the end of the year.

Ello Poppet Czech Pilsner
Of these 5 batches, only one (Spring Forward Hoppy Wheat) was a new recipe.

Last year Q1 I brewed 2 new recipes and ended the year with 11. I'm off that pace, but I have plenty of time to catch up.

Helles in a Hand Bock-sket

Two of these are lager beers (Ello Poppet Czech Pilsner and Helles in a Hand Bock-sket).

Last year I brewed 3 lagers in Q1 and ended up with a record-breaking 7 lagers. It looks like I'm on pace to tie that lager record this year.

Spring Forward Hoppy Wheat

Q2 is obviously underway. I've brewed 3 beers this quarter and will brew another this weekend. I expect I'll end up with 5 batches of beer this quarter too.

Nothing real significant to say about any future beers. I am planning on brewing a coffee beer this weekend, which will be my first beer that uses actual coffee.

I expect mostly low alcohol beers going into the summer, but I certainly won't rule out any moderate or higher strength beers going forward.

You'll just have to see what comes.

As always, you can also always follow us on SheppyBrew's Instagram Feed; SheppyBrew's Facebook Page; Sheppy's Twitter Feed; and SheppyBrew's Website.

Go Cubs!
