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.
