Sorry you haven't had much success with your homebrew, I've been brewing at home for 5+ years and consider it a labor of love more than anything else. It saves a little money over store bought beer, but the work you put into it overshadows any savings. Nevertheless, opening one of your own beers on a Sunday afternoon as you sit down to watch a little NASCAR or football is "pretty good living." It sure beats opening a Bud Light or some other "almost water" concoction that goes for beer these days.

I agree with Mike on this. Homebrewing saves a little money (when you value your time at zero), but it gives you the chance to try beers that are difficult to get otherwise. For me, the hobby is in making the beer just as much as drinking it. Learning and understanding what goes on makes the hobby enduring for me (14 years).


I've also made meads and agree with WBONE546 on the ease and uniqueness of making mead.
