hmm... i may not have quite that much in bottles, (i'd guesstimate about half), but with over 100gal in fermenters + 6 kegs on tap, i'm still doing alright :)

I plan on getting a dozen or so cases of beer ahead for the summer. I don't brew much in the summer. I couldn't fathom getting that much beer ahead. Quite impressive.

just did a quick count of mine. 3 kegs, the equivalent of about 75 12oz bottles, and 4 carboys in various stages of fermenting/aging.

i have 4 x 6 gallon fermentors tied up for the next 1-12 months and 1 5 gallon fermentor for the next 4 months.

guestimating my current home brew bottle count to be around 125. yikes.

My bottle count is pretty low, haven't brewed much since fall, but that should be remedied soon. Right now I have in carboys some 1.5 yr old mead, cider from this fall and a Kiwi Berliner Weisse that should be good to go pretty soon.

I have about 25 or so. Half of them have an amber I did a while back that turned out bad. Now I have a few kegs and just want to get rid of the bottles (keeping some 500ml fill tops, of course). Anyone in Ottawa want some 1L flip top bottles? I'm pretty much willing to just give them away at this point.

Does anyone know a good place in Toronto to get cases of standard 12 oz brown pry off bottles? A bar you've had success at maybe?
