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?!?).
