It does sound like a brew on premise sort of venture.
If you aren't looking to go pro then sharing equipment should be fine as long as they take the wort with them and pitch at their home.

Good luck then! That is a whole lot to make at once at your house, but if you are determined then I'm sure it can be done. How many people do you have chipping in?

So if they take the bucket of wort off premise and add the yeast it wouldn't count toward the 200 gallon limit? This seems to make sense but I'm not sure what they mean by "brewing beer". Technically beer isn't brewed until it's been fermented.

For now just 8 but could grow to more.

I have 42 gallon conical...would be nice to ferment in one batch.

Ok, then you can brew four and a half batches.

Probably would have helped if you had mentioned that in the original post. You are probably a nanobrewery and potentially need to get some permits if you plan to use that more than 4 times.

I highly doubt any police or FDA IRS types will show up at your place and bust you. Unless you have big signs out front and an ad in the paper or something you should be fine. No one has any way of knowing how many gallons you've brewed. I couldn't care less for the yearly limit on making beer at home. I've surpassed it each of the past two years.
