Highly illegal. If anyone DID (I don't think anyone does), they probably shouldn't be admitting to it.

If I were younger and Phish was still touring, I'd pack up a couple of kegs and sell cups of beer in the parking lot. $5.00 for a 16oz pour could buy a lot of stainless steel conical fermenters! (And blueberry KB.)

It varies from state to state and the fees add up. Most states require that yoou produce a MINIMUM amount of beer and that minimum is VERY high.

An outlay that factors in the 10s of thousands is often the result.

There is a BeerPastor thread along the lines of "Don't try this at Home", he has real life experiene producing beer for profit.

Also this was asked about a month ago. Do a search.

Maybe we could all get Judith Regan to do a book for us.

Has anyone had someone buy the ingredients and then you brew the beer for them?
