I don't care if it's brewing, building cars, guns,reloading or whatever your hobby.
You don't keep track of the cost!! It starts to make less sense if you do.
Let's see if I keep this updated!

On tap
Black Butte clone

In secondary
Pumpkin ale

In primary
Honey wit

Up next.. Firestone Union Jack clone

Someone asked me this question this weekend. My answer is pretty much the same one I give when I am asked about the gas mileage of my truck. I don't know and I don't care. If I tried to figure either out, I would just cry.

Probably around 1500-2000. That includes my setup, brews in the past, my kegerator/keg setup, keggle and mash tun, stand, etc. Also including the sink/workspcace in my "brewroom", and pieces/parts for all brewing related projects. Would do it all again without hesitation.
Put it all in the primary, and let the BeerGods sort it out

Honestly I haven't kept track. I went through a propane phase. I adapted most of that for use in a pump driven electric rig with HERMS to avoid brewing outside in temperature flirting with 0*F or below. I have a 4 tap kegerator, with a nice SS tower. I would think over 2g in hardware easy. I am getting ready to add a motorized mill to the operation and I predict a move in the future, which may mean re-imagining the brewery (ventilation, plumbing routing, space consideration, ect) but that is a good thing, I have learned what works and what doesn't in my first go through.

If the lady friend is asking about $100, simcoe is $2 a pound, and my buddies dad hands out 2-row like candy.

Anybody else, more then I care to admit so far

Secondary: Lagunitas IPA Clone, Apfelwein, Cider
Kegged: Russian Breakfast Stout, Super Galena DIPA
Bottled: Dark Water RIS, 2010 Cider
