So Im trying to be creative and think of some ways I can make a little spare cash for a side project I'm saving up for. To get it out of the way, its a guitar, a really nice one. I have a full time job and a 8 week old newborn so an additional job is not really feasible right now. Free time is pretty much non-existent. I've made a long list of items i plan on selling locally and also a list of things that I am good at in which maybe I could make some dough through services or my 'expertise'. On the top of my list is Homebrewing. Now, I am no where near claiming to be an EXPERT here, but.... I have invested more time into this hobby than anything else I can think of. My beer is good, my setup is clean and I have a pretty good understanding of what is going on.
I thought I would turn to you guys for some ideas on if its possible to take our hobby and make a little extra $. Im sure everyone could use a little cash right now, even if its to reinvest into more brewing!
Im not looking to sell my beer or anything like that. Im just trying to apply what I believe I'm best at towards making a little spare change legally, ethically and having fun doing it.
A few ideas I briefly thought of would be trying to sell homemade equipment that was made for brewing such as mashtuns, brew kettles, chillers, stir plates and so on. Easily built once you've done it a few times. One problem is there is not a huge portion of homebrewers on the island i live on. But.. There is a college
. Could I make some $ teaching
people to brew somehow? I also have an extensive collection of bottles, hundreds, which are de-labbled and ready to go. I plan on selling them with a few capers at maybe .10 or .15 cents a bottle? that kinda thing. Since I've been Kegging for years, i have no clue why i kept saving all my bottles but i guess now i know why
Finally, I'm not trying to get rich or rip anyone off. I'm basically talking breaking even + a few bucks. I enjoy the hobby, I love brewing and building things. Anyone have any ideas ?
