Over a year, I received a beer making kit as a gift. I had made one batch, but since then I had gotten too busy to make it. Or else I had just forgotten. In any event, my fiancee and I decided that with the long weekend last weekend it was time to make some beer.
Looking into it financially, it seems to be a good deal. It’s $30 for all the ingredients, and there’s really nothing else to the cost once you own the kit. I think I’ll get somewhere around 10 six packs, which, at $3 a six pack is pretty decent. The bonus is that it seems that people tend to like it. I hope they are not lying, but with the first batch, I told them they could spit it out if they didn’t like it and I wouldn’t be offended. After all, I was using them largely as guinea pigs for my first attempt.
I like the idea of making your own beer. Is there some legal limit on how much you can make per year? I’ve heard with wine there is a legal limit on how much you are suppose to make as a private, non-enterprise.
