Is homebrew expensive to make?

After the initial investment for the necessary equipment and bottles, brewing at home is relatively inexpensive. In fact, if you prefer imported or micro-brewed beer you’ll be surprised to learn that you will save a lump of dough. An average 6-pack of micro-brew can cost upwards of $10. In contrast, the average cost of a 5 gallon recipe kit at Midwest sells for about $30-$40, which works out to be about $4.20 per 6-pack (almost 60% cheaper)!

The cost of homebrew can be reduced further with all-grain brewing. Although all-grain brewing requires additional equipment up front, the ingredients are considerably cheaper than extract brewing. All-grain brewing has the added advantage of greater control over the subtle nuances of a beer’s character. As an example of the difference in cost, an amber ale extract kit might cost $34, whereas the all-grain version of that same kit might cost $28. Either way it is inexpensive in comparison to shelling out full retail for quality imported or micro-brewed beer.
