    Really, “Get a Credit Card” is one of your ways to save money homebrewing?

    Wait a second … are you sure “going all grain” means what you think it means? I thought it meant not using any extract in the brewing process, not skipping the hops. To build on that, there’s the possibility of using other herbs as bittering agents. I’ve been putting some thought into using rosemary and spruce.

    And to be honest, I don’t homebrew to save money. I do it to create stuff that just doesn’t exist otherwise. That said, I’m all for saving some cash while doing it, so I still like your premise.

    Thanks for writing about homebrewing. Keep it comin’!

    Good article, Couple of other suggestions:

    1. Make friends with people who can “do” things – someone who can weld is very useful; someone who understands gas or electric . . .

    2. keep an eye on Craigslist – you can quite often find things you can use. Chest freezers, for instance, are all over CL and make GREAT kegerators or fermentation chambers. . .
