I'm with the others. They give you the honey and whatnot, you give them the mead. Labor and storage? Just keep a bottle or two for yourself to cover that. Seems fair to me.

No offense, but why not just sell it to them... and then never talk about it?

Because the last thing we need is for some alcohol hating,, litigatious happy ass government official to catch someone doing just that.

Yeah there's a little matter of it being ILLEGAL...

I just can't figure out why I'm the only one who says GIVE IT TO HER....why does everything have to be about profit, or charging for ingredients or charging a teaching fee or something..

She wants a few bottles...it's a friend of the OP...don't you give homebrew to your friends????

Depends on how hot (Or not) she is.

Actually some of those Pagan/Wiccan Clergy that I have met were quite hot...but most of them were vegetarians and didn't shave either....It's fun for awhile...but i'm allergic to patchoulli and overly thick bushes.

Oh lord, patchoulli. I can't smell that stuff without picturing a hippy homless guy who hasn't washed for weeks. I'll blame it on having family in Berkley.

Anyway, yeah, have them get the honey, you make it, then save a few bottles for yourself as fee, sounds good to me.

I didn't get that it was just a few bottles. In my mind, I was thinking about a batch of mead fairly regularly. That would be a little much to just gift someone. Yeah, if it's just a bottle or three, then I'd give it without thought.

You can, but generally speaking people doing things with religious organizations (or specifically non-religious groups, depending on the case) want to give back.

What?????????????

I'm sorry I have no clue what the heck you are saying.

Religuous organizations take donations all the time..we usually offer a receipt for tax purposes to the gifter ( I know I usually got hand cramps from signing them)...but in this case, to the IRS that would be seen as payment..and therefore that could be illegal, since accepting payment for homebrew is against the law..also the person is a friend of the OP's so what the f is wrong with giving his friend some meade???

And everyone seems to want some exchange for giving the mead..except, what's wrong with doing it outta friendship or the kindness of his heart???
