Extract was costing me between 20 and 30 dollars for the same batch, and the beer wasn't near as good.

Now that is some great value beer! Where are you located elproducto?

Are you a member of the SOB group?
I live in Parry Sound, 2.5 hours north of Toronto.

For a basic pale ale which uses 10 pounds of 2-row = $6
1 pound of carapils = $2
Safale US-05 reused from previous batch - free
6 ounces of bulk hops - $4 approx.

$12

The key is buying bulk if you can. I bought 110 pounds of 2-row for $70 which will last me over a year.

The only piece of equipment I needed to go all grain was a mashtun which I made for about $50 using a coleman cooler from walmart, and various parts from home depot.

I'd like to order from online places as well, but having a hell of a time finding a place that stocks the Tap-a-draft kits in Canada. x.x

Homebrewgearcanada is my favourite so far. I am a member of MoB but haven't participated in any group buys yet. I sometimes make the drive up to Montreal and go here:

Hi Verroa - I'm doing some festa''s as well, just bottled the pale ale. How is the double oatmeal stout? How do you find them generally?

I haven't tried the DOS yet. The MoB guys seem to like them and there was a recent discussion about the DOS with a lot of people comparing it to the St Ambroise Oatmeal Stout once it was finished. I am currently fermenting the Bock which so far seems to be going well.

Has anyone here ordered hops through them?

I'm still cutting my teeth with some festa kits, but I'm definitely going to look into this for when I start going extract and partial mash.
