I just brewed 25 gallons of Kolsch, my system is electric and NG so it's cheaper then propane and I reuse my yeast 4 times so I divide that cost. Here's the breakdown of the cost...

50lbs Pilsener malt............. $28.00

7oz hops.......................... $10.50

Yeast.............................. $1.50

Fuel................................ $8.00

That comes to $48 for 25 gallons or about $2.00 per gallon or 25 cents per 16oz bottle

I make a Centennial Blonde (ABV 4.8) for $9.30 plus maybe a $1 in Natural Gas, $.10 in sanitizer, $.25 in DME, $.25 in yeast, .10 in Oxy and a $1 for ice. Grand total of $12.00. Average beer would be more like $18.00 to $21.00 though.
