Labor = Love of brewing quality beer.
I love that recipe, and slight variations on it! I just bottled a batch this week - same hops slightly different grain bill. Definately one of my favorites, and yes, it's "cheap" to make.

True. I've saved about as much $$ brewing as SWMBO has saved $$ shopping for clothes.


I take that back, I have a lot of saving to do to catch up with that woman!

[QUOTE=Bobby_M]Step one. Admit to yourself that this is NOT a money saving hobby, especially if you factor in paying yourself half of the minimum wage./QUOTE]

Only factor in wage if you consider homebrewing a job

I don't do this hobby just to save money, but I do think that it is a cheaper way to drink good beer. I have to pay $4 a bottle(650ml) for Anchor Liberty Ale and I drink a pint or two most nights. At $30-$40/week there's no way I could afford to drink only "good" beer. I enjoy the process of homebrewing, but I do like to think that I'm saving a bit of cash too.
