As I type this, 2021 is almost over. I'm not brewing again before 2022, so I can report on my brewing stats for the 4th quarter and for year end.
I brewed quite a bit of beer in 2021. Not nearly as much as 2020, but significantly more than any other year in my brewing "career".
In the 4th quarter this year, I only brewed 5 batches of beer.
- Mr. Awesome Merican Lager
- Caliente Fuerte Mexican Stout
- Dudocs Dark Mild
- X-Mas Ale 2021
- Decemberfest Lager

And, for legal reasons, this is the point of the blog post where I mention that the SheppyBrew Beer Model helped me brew a bunch this year.

Of the 5 batches of beer, 4 of them were new recipes (Mr. Awesome, Caliente Fuerte, Dudocs, X-Mas Ale). I had only brewed 3 new recipes the rest of the year, as I was purposely exploring older recipes.
So, I only brewed 7 new recipes in 2021, which is a whole lot less new stuff than ever brewed before. For comparison, 2020 included 18 new recipes.
2 of these 4th quarter batches were lagers (Mr. Awesome, Decemberfest), bringing my 2021 lager total up to 10. I think this is the most lager batches I've ever brewed in a year. I brewed 7 in 2020, which is also quite a few for me.
All of my recipes were all-grain again this year.

I do expect that I'll continue to do more lagers in 2022. I think I'll brew more new recipes next year than I did this year, but I'm not sure.
