Clearly, I don't care about the cost. Believe me, if I didn't work 60 hour weeks and 80 hour weeks January through April, I would be brewing donkey kong.

maybe he should also take into consideration the increase in "pint drinkage" since homebrewing.

Don't know about OP, but I definitely drink more beer now(but less wine and vodka...)

I think the increase in flatulence in a cost benefit analysis probably outweighs the pint drinkage component, so I'm going to call that a wash factor.

$30 per batch...time to start buying in bulk. Grain costs next to nothing when you buy in bulk and hops are a great buy now too we just picked up 11# at an average of $.068/oz including shipping. My last batch, lil sparky's nut brown cost $18.11 for an 11G batch and $3.50 was for the nottingham yeast.

Yes! Much cheaper than $30 per batch. All you need is a barley crusher. With yeast washing my Alt today was like $11 for 6 gallons. Thats $0.275 a pint and I didn't use bulk hops.

I'm still eyeing a sump pump...and I just bought 2 better bottles, I guess I am still addicted to equipment upgrades.

Yeah, but it takes money to save money so you'd better get on with the purchase. You'll also need a refractometer, scale, stir plate, etc, etc.

Welcome to the meeting, Doc. Come in and sit down.
