Except: You aren't factoring in your labor let alone your equipment. Homebrew is some of the most expensive beer in the world.
i guess i shouldn't be mowing my own lawn either, because the amount of money i could earn during that time is way more than what i pay the kid down the street. , not many hobbies are cheap. this one can be expensive or not. my lbhs has a huge ss blichman kettle for 700 bucks. my kettle bought at a goodwill store for three bucks. add another 20 tops for the electric element not so much.
Time is money my friend. Just because you enjoy doing it doesn't mean you are spending it ... or even spending it wisely.
