Bah, what's a few more dollars for all the fun the brewing provides?

Abra..
Have you considered contract brewing.
Brew for others that pay for the ingredients and then take some beer off the top.

wouldn't that be in direct violation of federal and state law regarding homebrewing and the sale thereof?

i respect his opinion...don't get me wrong - i just don't get it. yea i don't like it when things i enjoy doing get pricier..but such is life.

it's kind of like the same tired old story your parents told you about going to the movies and spending a quarter on a movie, popcorn and a drink. it's meaningless in today's market. it's a nice story - but it does no good to opine on the past. now a days you couldn't get out of the movie place spending 20 -30 bucks - even more if you take your family. so i got me a blockbuster account and wait until everything comes out on DVD. that's how i deal. now if i were a hard core movie goer - I'd spend the bucks to see it hot off the press.

They just have to come over and pitch the yeast.

Lol. I brew great beer but I don't think anyone that I know would want to do that. How do you advertise something like that?
Plus you'd be so wrapped up in other people's beer you wouldn't have time for your own! Kinda like the painter whose house has needed repainting for the last 5 years.

I don't want to get sidetracked with that idea. It'd mostly be for your mooching friends.

of course i will still brew. Midwest has put there price increases on there kits, didnt check the hop prices but kits went up from $1.20 to $3 something depending on what you were brewing. Thats a pretty small increase when you go by the bottle and kits are alot more than buying in bulk

Default Good new at least for me

I recently tried an Old Rasputin, Russian Imperial Stout. Too hoppy for my taste (I can fix that) but otherwise I liked it. $8.55 after tax for a 4 pack. That equals $222.30 for a 10 gal. brew session. North Country Malts bulk prices are what got me to start this poll in the first place & according to others that posted on this tread they seems high.

Everyone posted great prices on grain but nobody posted where they get these great prices. So any help there would be greatly appreciated. Also with no luck getting anyone in the greater Atlanta area interested in a group buy I was more that a little frustrated.

But with this new beer that I would happy purchase if I couldn't make it myself maybe I can rationalize brewing in my own mind after all.

Thanks to all guys and gal with the helpful posts and suggestions you know who you are.

And to all the Smart @$$e$
