I recently came to discover the world of homebrewing. Below I have a comparison between a popular UGL brand from the US and the prices from a decent raw supplier within the EU (still chinese raws).
(UGL) 20 Tablets of 25mg Aromasin = 29$
(RAW) 10g of Aromasin (10.000mg) = 150$
(RAW) 20 Servings in a Liquid Suspension = 7.5$
(RAW~50%) 20 Servings in a Liquid Suspension = 15$
Of course the raws have some misc expenses from 190 proof ethanol/PEG 300 but these tend to be cheap as dirt. Even if the purity is ~50%, it still works out as a much better value for money! Let's look at cialis:
(UGL) 30 Tablets of Cialis 40mg = 28$
(RAW) 10g of Cialis (10.000mg) = 50$
(RAW) 30 Servings in a Liquid Suspension = 6$
RAW~50%) 30 Servings in a Liquid Suspension = 12$
I won't go into any oral aas because I think I have proven my point. Any I missing something here? How is it possible that raws are dirt cheap and people still buy overpriced stuff from UGL's? Convenience factor also plays an important role but at this price range any comparison to UGL's seem unnecessary.
