Default Brewing with Friends!

Does anyone know.....is it legal to setup brewing equipment at my house and let my friends brew with it?

Can you elaborate a bit? Would the beer ferment at your house too? All together do you imagine brewing more than 200 gallons (assuming you a spouse)?

Why would it be illegal?

Huh? You mean invite some friends over to homebrew with you? If so of course it's legal

Yes it would brew at my house..yes friends would want to brew their 200 gallons too.
And one step further could I rent out my brew system and my space?

If you end up brewing say 500 gallons and don't throw up any red flags for anyone to look at what you are doing the govt isn't going to care, but I doubt 2000 gallons will go unnoticed and when you get to doing that much and start charging a "rental fee" you may be running into some issues

Maybe they would just make a donation to help out with costs?

Not trying to get rich here...just trying to share equipment costs...and buy ingredients in bulk to save money for all.
And have some fun!
But spending some time in the slammer is not an option for me...I'm very attractive
