How much does it cost to homebrew beer?

Homebrewing equipment can be bought for under $100 and will last a long time if you take care of it properly.

Individual kits can be bought for between $20-50 and will make 5 gallons of beer. Ingredients can be bought seperately for about the same price.

You can buy brand new bottles for around $20/per 24 bottles or you can decide to reuse store bought beer bottles if they are not the twist-off type.
