I also have a recipe arriving today that only costs like $32 for an American Red. I'll report back on the flavor when it's done. And that's PM!
Laurel, are you reading those Northern Brewer catalogues again??? Zombies?

I heard that Trappist style beer repels zombies. No zombies at my house yet, it must be true!

Sounds like every trip to the grocery store for me.

Good news is, now I get out of doing the grocery shopping most of the time.

Well if I brew a batch that gets me 50-55 bottles of home brew that should last me awhile. The batch im about to brew will only cost me 35$ so thats not bad. Any money I can save in these time is great

Once or twice a month, I'll budget some ca$h for the bottle shop and try something fun. Other than that, it is homebrewed.
I am saving money in that I am not buying tons of bombers and sixpacks weekly as I have done in the past. Sales taxes and retail markup really messes with the beer budget.

I can brew quality beers at home and share them with friends. Can't get better than that.

God, I spend so much money on beer. Homebrewing isn't really a money saver. More a fun way to kill time. I am cool with buying 20 dollar bottles on a Friday night to get what I want. I just love having a hobby that is a craft and is creative.

Here's the deal. My dad spent a month in Germany. When he got home he had a box waiting. Inside were 2 bombers of Dunkelweizen, 2 Hefe's and a couple of Kolsch's.

He shared them with friends while viewing his slides show of the trip. They were floored by how good they were - they thought he had brought them back from Germany.

That kind of thing makes the expense and learning curve worth it.
