Almost nothing so far. I write descriptions and articles to HBS's website and they give me stuff in exchange.
Last 8 brews cost me 10 hours of my time so I think it's a good deal. Plus I got other brewing stuff too.

I'm probably around $1000-$2000. Craigslist and trades have kept prices down. That's including extract kits and grains, hops and yeast etc. etc.

Kegs and all. A lot more than originally planned. Was thinking under $500 to start out but blew that out of the water after week 3. Will prob have another $2000 in a year or two. Hopefully going electric and bigger. Beer is just too good to not spend money on.

Good judgement comes from experience, experience comes from bad judgement.

Bored on a Sunday so sorry for bumping an old thread...

Ordered a 10 gallon Bayou Classic but was sent the 16 gallon: $165
10 gallon rubbermaid cooler: $45
Mash tun parts: $35
Siphon, tubing, fermenting buckets, capper, hydrometer, etc: $140
SQ14 burner: $55
Temp control: $45 (free fermenting fridge luckily)
Most recent odds and ends: $45
2000ml flask: $25

Total: ~$550

Looking to get a second pot for sparge water and more odds and ends parts. I would say I have/will spend around $700 total for all of pieces to brew. When I go to keg I will spend more...

I'll never add it up to find out. First, I really don't want to know. Second, if I put the number in a public forum, and my wife ever finds out, I'm toast.
Never underestimate the potential of someone who refuses to act their age.

SHMBO and I agreed NOT to add it up! She enjoys this as much as i do so we just write it off as a mutual hobby!

But if i had to guess it would pay for a very nice vacation!

I really don't think I'm at that much compaired to the amount of stuff I have. I am set up for all grain and have a keezer with 4 Taps and 4 Kegs. If I was to pick a number I'd say 1700 or less.
