What is your cost per pint?
 
Around 65 cents on my end.

How about you guys?

About .70 here for a bigger beer. I think the cheapest I've done has been around .35

I probably average .50-.60 for a pint. But that includes everything...propane, ice, water, cleaning supplies, as well as actual ingredients.

0.45/pint for my session ale.

0.65/pint for my IPAs and Stouts.

This includes the cost of yeast and starter ingredients as well as the propane required to brew the batch.

It was closer to $1.00/pint before I started buying bulk base malt and washing my yeast!

From € 0.75 to €1.05 for a liter (around two pints) this is with taking acount of all the expenses, water, electric power, cleanears, bottle caps and ingridients. I buy in bulk mostly otherwise it will be around the double (maybe a little less)

I have this problem of fixed costs behaving more like marginal costs.

Mine average out close enough to $0.50 that this is what I tell folks.

This is why I don't understand why a lot of homebrewers think it doesn't save you money.

I am brewing my homebrews for $4-$6 for a 12-pack of bottles. IF I were to buy Sam Adams @ $16.99/12 pack once a week that equates to a yearly savings of at least $575.

ALL of my equipment (I do AG 11 gallon batches) cost me less than $750. I have been brewing for 1.3 years. I have just now covered my initial equipment investment in savings! From here on out I'll be saving about $575/year on beer so I could spend $500/year on equipment upgrades and STILL save money! Win/Win.

Brew mostly saisons and sours in the 1.050s and with bulk grain and hops, and repitched yeast I'm running around 30 cents plus electricity. IPAs push into the 50s. Hops are the major impact, each gravity point is only $.003/pint so a bigger beer doesn't add much cost.

I don't know ANY homebrewers that think they aren't saving money!!! That's all I heard from everyone that talked me into trying it. Granted some save more by AG brewing... others figure extract is still saving them money. But even buying more expensive yeast, extracts and things to try while I'm testing things out... my ingredients and consumables are less than what I would spend on my regular store-bought drinkin' beers.
