What's this talk about bargains???

How much is you're time worth, anyway? If you consider that it takes at
least 3 to 4 hours to brew from extract, your best bargain is to get a
weekend job and use the extra income to buy good comercial beer.

If what you want is to save money on ingredients, then brew all-grain, but
that cost you a couple extra hours. If you don't care about quality, then
dry yeast is a fraction of liquid and table sugar is less than 40 cents a

I don't homebrew to save money. I homebrew for the satisfaction of
making great beer.
