$5 says you spend $500-1000 within the next few months on your hobby cough "addiction" it just happens.

I have spent a pretty penny on this hobby since the beginning of may, BUT I have already brewed 6 batches so far. all have been some of, if not the best beer i have ever had. the best beer is made at home with your own two hands. I think I will brew for a very long time! lol

Wait until you start buying kegging equipment and all-grain setups. I know I haven't spent near what some people have, but I'd say it's upwards of 2k just in the last year. That's not including the actual beer ingredients. There's always something bigger and shinier to buy.

Yeah not including my ingrediants I have spent about $900 on my setup, all grain, brewing equipment and kegging equipment included. I did not even spend much on my all grain set up. I use a 7 gallon turkey fryer for my kettle, and I spent about $40 on my mash tun. So I got away cheap. I am about to by two more kegs, as well as another line and another tap. It is all money well spent though.

Just wanted to add in here that I was privileged to have some of ThreeTaps first ever brew tonight, and apart from the slight banana esters from the admittedly highly fermentation temps, this is one tasty brew! The banana didn't actually detract from the beer all that much, kind of a banana-blond. He even left me a bottle... so he can come back anytime

Keep up the good brewing Justin!

Thanks man! I'm sure the next batches will come out perfect as the ferm temps have been controlled well. But if you want to bring up tasty beer, your ESB, Irish Red and Sehrdunkelweizen were all extremely good. I think the ESB was my favorite.

We'll do another brew day (or even a drink day, hah) soon enough. Today was good times, thanks for inviting me!

Just an update...

Now that the beer has conditioned in the bottle a bit longer, my wife actually likes it...and she's a Corona / Coors Light kind of girl. Nice!

Sweet, I've still got my bottle waiting for me in the fridge. I'm saving it for a special occasion, I think I'll drink it when the Fins Play their next Monday night game (2 weeks). Should have aged it's way to amazing by then

Sounds good! I'm saving about 3 22ozers for a couple months from now too. Tonight I bottle my Pumpkin Spice and Cherry Wheat ales. Should be a fun night.
