    That’s not too bad. That’s not much different from the US rate. So its about 9.5 euros or 12 bucks per hectoliter.

    I would argue that if you have to include labor costs into the price of homebrew, then it's no longer a hobby. Actually since I really enjoy brewing beer, if I had to put a price on the hours spent brewing it would be a negative number! So the return on investment would be even shorter. :)

    So, I did that, copied the binary listing into a binary to text translator. It's not a phone number. It translates to: I love beer!
    Thank God that our computers read & understand binary so that we don't have to.

    That's true, but I can buy $10 worth of groceries and spend an hour whipping up a meal that will feed 4 people. If it took 8 hours and up to $20 in ingredients to cook a meal that would cost us $50 in a restaurant, that would be more analogous. :)
    We'll always find a way to justify the outlay. :D

    Years ago I saw that on a t-shirt on ThinkGeek.com. I should have bought then it because they shut down in 2019 :(.

    I love that shirt. It's been too long for me though, I'd need a pen and paper to convert @BarbarianBrewer s code there

    Check any of the t-shirt websites out there (redbubble, etc.). They'll have tens of versions of that one (decimal not binary, in this case).

    Or you could get this design for when you brew the community recipe this quarter.

    Am I that predictable? :D

    Love that design BTW. It would make an awesome brewery logo.

    I liken this to fishing, I love to fish, but even at todays ridiculous seafood prices, I've probably spent 20 times as much, just on gear and bait, than the amount of fish we've put on the table. I'd hate to consider how much fuel, wear & tear on vehicles and other incidentals would add to the total cost.

    As Brad Paisley sang. "And I love her, but I love to fish -------------" :):):)

    Yes, that...Same with hunting - meat costs more than I can buy it for and I don't fool myself into thinking that there's any real savings in it. In fact, gardening falls into the same category unless you have a huge plot and spend the time it takes to maximize your harvest. Those fresh, vine-ripened heirloom tomatoes that we enjoy from our little raised-bed patch in the back yard would be cheaper if we went to the local farmers market and paid $5 a pound for them. :D
