You aren't in trouble until you start building a walk in fridge.

Right there with you, started my first ever homebrew on Jan 1st, my tally so far is $550, got 2 5 gallons in the basement and a Mr Beer in the bathroom going, and have the ingredients for 2 more 5 gallon batches and 1 more Mr Beer batch, and the bottles and tap-a-draft to bottle at least 15 gallons of brew

But heck that's what, about 10 cases worth of brew? 550/10/4 = $13.75 per case of beer if I never brew again, that's not much more expensive than a 6 pack at a time for the "good" beers at the beer store (they run from $8-$13 per 6 pack for the good stuff. But now that I have the equipment my CPC (cost per case) should drop (yeah right, just means I'll be upgrading equipment amirite?!?).

Trouble is when you spend the money faster than you can research and save money. I jumped in and have a ton of stuff that was little use. Or for a few dollars more I could have gotten something much better.

this hobby would be something like for me now.
80% research
20% brewing
60% enjoying the final product.

Yea it doesn't add up to 100%. because 1/2 my research time and all of my brewing time I enjoy my brews.
