2-Not crazy about commercial beers. I like mine better.

What made the survey annoying? How would you have structured it?

It isn't clear to me what you are going to do with this information or why it is useful to spend time n a pretty detailed survey. What question are you trying to answer?

University-based research is usually conducted with approval of an IRB. I don't see this here, which makes me suspect.

It all boils down to pride in your craft.

I agree with bottle bomber it was 10 minutes of my life ill never get back! LOL \\\
glad t help progress the movement!

Te real reason I brew is to show the bigs, that I dont need thier ass_es. real beer comes from hard work, knowledge and determination.

If I would have based my decision on my first 2 brews, I would not be doing this right now.

I just brewed a 5% 5 gallons 52 bottles for 10.56 cents the time it took can never be replaced, but the expierience can never be duplicated, Put that feather in your cap! LOL

I brew cause I developed a taste for good beer at a relatively early age (@22) and then I met my girlfriend, who is Swedish, and moved to Sweden with her. Fantastic country but the alcohol prices are nuts here. They recently got in some SN Celebration ale and it was over $4 a beer. Yes, ladies and gents, you read that right. Brewing for me has turned into a way for me to get good beer at a pretty cheap price. It doesn't hurt that I love doing it even though I just started. I'm a student so alcohol is kind of a necessity but good beer (bought at least) is too much of a luxury. As of this moment, I have some three one gallon batches fermenting away. One is as close to a ruination clone as I could get, a nice centennial single hop and a IIPA I brewed with a friend to show him the ropes. He's just getting started as well.

Basically to get better beer for the same cost, and enjoy the fact that I made it.
