Default $10 for 3 sixers o'good??!!

Gotta coupon in the mail from Pilsner Urquell to try a sixer for $2. Then, in the friggin' closeout rack at the market, of all places, 2 sixers of Stone Pale Ale for $3.99 each!
Can't even brew that cheap!
Cheers.

not true even if you pay 20 bucks for a five gallon batch of good pale ale you are only paying just over 2.5 bucks a 6er... and many good recipes require less money for ingredants the 20 bucks...more like 12-16... which puts it between 1.5 and 2 bucks a 6er... but great buy any way... definatly faster then brewing... think you could spot me some, im in waiting for next batch???..... just kidding
drink it in good health

cheers

Maybe not true for you. As an extract brewer using White Labs, my typically ingredient cost is $30-35 = $15-17/ case.
