yep, it would have to be for a beer commune or something
But anyone with dreams of having a microbrewery one day would be set.
Start a local kegerator klub and have a group that everybody pitches in towards the cause and have them bring their mini-kegs, cornys, bottles or whatever on bottling day and fill their percentage?
One thing for certain is that you can save money in bulk ingredients but for most of us that is not practical because of keeping everything fresh.
20 people for 20 gallons @ $xx.xx per batch ingredients plus propane costs etc.
I am not sure how many laws would be broke with that idea, but it may just be dumb enough to work?
