2024 Q2 SheppyBrew Stats

It is already July, which means the 2nd Quarter of 2024 is done. We can report on the Q2 SheppyBrew Brewing Stats

When it comes right down to it, I'm sure no one besides myself really cares, but I like to look back on these posts to see how much I've brewed and what I was planning on brewing at certain points of the year.

As I've been saying, I expect that I'll brew less beer this year than I have for the past several years, and so far it does look like I'm tracking for a lower volume than 2023.

In this quarter, I've brewed 5 batches of beer:

This 5 batches of beer resulted in 25 gallons, putting me right at a total of 50 gallons half way through the year.

Melting Stream Spring Saison

Last year through the 2nd quarter, I had brewed 12 batches for 61 gallons, so I am obviously tracking lower than last year

As I type this, I still have kegs of all these beer except Melting Stream. I'm certainly consuming beer slower than I did last year. Or at least I have less help drinking than I did though June.

Helles in a Hand Bock-sket

Of the 5 beers, only 2 (Clan DunBroch and Nargles Porter) are new recipes. This means that I've only brewed 4 new recipes this year so far. Last year through Q2, I had brewed 7 new recipes.

Those 2 beers are Roll-a-Style beers that advance my BJCP Goal.

Only Helles in a Hand Bock-sket was a lager this quarter, putting my 2024 lager total at 3. I hope to concentrate on brewing more lagers during the 2nd half of the year.

Clan DunBroch Scottish Ale

The Beer Model "helped" me brew Clan DunBroch Scottish Ale at Du's Brewery on Big Brew Day. This beer is the only one so far this year that I didn't brew in the Anvil Foundry.

I have brewed "Seasonal" beers every month so far. April was Melting Stream. May was Helles in a Hand Bock-sket, and June was Summer Lovin'. I am planning on trying to do one "Seasonal" every month for the rest of the year.

Summer Lovin' American Wheat

This will probably mean that I won't get as many BJCP Goal beers done as I would have otherwise. It probably also means I won't get as many new recipes or lagers done.

Of course, we'll see how it goes.

Nargles American Porter
