+1 And ask them when they would like to stop over to brew it, or help anyway. Oh ya, hand them the empty propane tank once in a while too, just so they feel appreciated. But of course that all depends on who that someone is. If that someone does my tax return every year for free, well you know.....

I'd start with a 'tip jar' or something, and if that doesn't give them the hint, I'd stop serving them my delicious brew

Well it depends. If this is your only friend, and the only way they can tolerate hanging out with you is drinking large amounts of beer, well in that case maybe you should be glad for the company.

If my friends are mooching beer off of me, then I would most definitely ask them to pay for part of the ingredients. Luckily, I have good friends and they'll always bring good microbrews or bring other stuff as a good gesture. Actually, I've had friends offer to chip in, but I refuse.

That's an oxymoron. A friend would never mooch, and that's the point.

Hell, I WANT them to drink my beer quickly so I can brew the next batch.

I have no problem giving my beer away....I just give out a few. If I'm going to a party I'll bring 1 or 2 bombers of my homebrew and a 6pack of something, that way people can have a taste and I don't look like a moocher.

If your friend really likes homebrew so much offer to teach him to brew his own...

My friends consume most of the beer I brew, and I never ask for money—I'm happy that they like it, and if I didn't want them to drink it I wouldn't offer it to them.

That said, my friends have offered to buy a sack of malt a couple of times, and have refilled my propane a time or two. That's good enough for me.

True. A friend who mooches is not a friend.
