Default love to brew but dont drink much.

hey guys I have a problem I love to brew, but I don't drink much. sooo I have a bunch of home brew sitting in my cellar. I do give some away, however I was wondering if anyone had any ideas as to how I can brew more. without selling it, and without it piling up on me.

I am going to have a bbq next month. i also was thinking of brewing for my friends. i buy the ingredients and brew and they pay me back. do you think that would be against the law?

I'm the same way...the brewing dial is set on 7 but the drinking dial is on 2.

I just give a lot of beer away.

I'll come pick up the beer. I'm not too far away.

if you buy the ingredients and have someone pay you back, that might be getting into some funny business with the laws. but i dont see where there would be a problem if they bought the ingredients and you made the beer for them.

I'm sorry to hear that. I am also sorry I don't live closer.

Barter.

I have one buddy who makes cheese, another who kills things and makes sausage, another who catches way too many fishes. Trying to find a gardener or a maid who likes beer...

Extra beer?? You mean.... ESB right? Surely, you don't mean surplus.... I don't think I even know what that word means!

OP, I feel you on this one. I don't drink a lot either, and I don't even brew as much as some people on here!
