I believe you, ma'am. I've made beer as well, using the same kit, and it was delish.

I always kind of wanted to do it on a larger scale, but never got around to it, or couldn't afford the supplies/ingredients, or something...

The Mr Beer kit is shit - shit ingerdients, very small scale, etc. If you regularly drink cheap domestics you really have no reason to homebrew, but homrewing good beer is usually cheaper than buying a decent craftbrew or import - just time consuming.

Very true, the wheat-dopplebock I just brewed works out to about $2.50 a pint; retail it's $8.50 for a 500ml (16.9 oz) bottle.

It's a no-brainer ...

I've never had a commercial wheat beer I liked. Most use that shitty American Wheat Yeast that's bland as hell. I used the Weihenstephan when I made wheat beers. The Best I ever made I felt I called "Old Cutthroat." It was a barleywine of about 11% ABV and 150 IBUs. Man that sucked when it was gone. I used to always save a bottle to try 6 months after bottling and 1 1 year later - but for the really strong ones I'd save a 2 year. Also made one Called "Matt's black ale" - an Imperial stout of about 9%, 60 IBUs and flavored with oak.
