I think these are the 3 main points to the thread.
1) Always coming over mooching needs to pony up
2) Occasional brews are more than acceptable. I happily open my kegerator for my friends for as much as they want whenever they're there, but It's not often because we all have kids. If it was a daily thing yes you need to help out.
3) If you're in a financial position where it doesn't affect your budget, disregard #1. I'd love to be able to supply beer for all my friends flowing freely at my house. But the reality is, my budget and free time allows for 1 Batch (10G) per month. Once that's gone it's gone.
