Default Friends paying for beer?!

Hello guys,

Im making my beer, im coollest friend around right now... since my friends are atomic drinkers, i thought i should charge them something to buy more ingredients, not so much for drinking the beer...

how do you go around this? ive spent around 50 bucks and roughly 2 months, on my first batch....and i dont really want them to drink my homebrew like it was an eternal fountain of free beer.

If they drink it at your house Id put little coffee mug out next to the fridge saying "If you're drinking my homebrew, please help support OUR habit"

you're not selling commercial and technically you can't charge without a license.
But if it's to the point of them drinking your beer to the point you can't afford to brew for yourself, Put out a mandatory "tip" jar. Or if it's primarily 2-4 friends, then you all 4 can alternate who pays for batches.

Put a big glass jar on top the fridge that has a clear sigh that says:


BEER
FUND

Just tell them you'll provide the beer and they can supply the food.

Just tell them you'll make whatever beer they want as long as they buy the ingrediants, exagerate the cost a bit ($5-10) save that little up and before you know it you'll have some extra money for your own recipe.. while drinking their's.
I also like the tip jar/can/cup/sock/whatever idea.

You can make them buy ingredients and brew it for them.... to me thats different then selling beer.

or sell them beer, you wont get caught. keep a rough tally of how many each person drinks, and everyone can agree to settle up when it's time to brew more.

If that doesnt work get new friends.
