All grain costs me 37 to 47 cents a bottle. My last extract brew cost 54 cents a bottle. All ingredients were bought in kit form from my local homebrew store.

Newcastle Brown Ale costs $1.35 a bottle, and Sam Adams is about $1.10 a bottle.

It varies widely based on the specific recipe, how much grain/adjunct is used, what kind of yeast, if you're reusing yeast, all-grain or extract, ordering in bulk, current prices of hops, etc.

I think prices ranging $0.25 to $0.75 per bottle is a good range estimate (factoring in only ingredients). My all-grain session ale is about $0.35 per bottle if I reuse yeast. I could get that down a lot further if I bought grain and hops in bulk.

10-gallon All Grain batches of my Nierra Sevada (relative premium beer).

I recon it's about 25-30 cents a bottle including propane...not including other miscellaneous items (zip ties, garbage bags for spent grains, box of Triscuits for munching during boils...etc)

I'm right around 50 cents these days for my consumables. I usually distribute my equipment costs over the course of a year, so if you include the items that are less than a year old my price might be closer to a dollar.

+1 for consumables only. The equipment has a longer life span, plus salvage value. It's about 50 to 75 cents for a glass of all grain beer.

I just did the numbers and am running 60 cents per 12 oz. This will drop when I go completely AG starting with the brew I just did last night.
