Exactly! It is the customers beer since they are pitching the yeast. My point is that there are NO federal regulations regarding brew on premise (BOP) operations. There are some guidelines but I don't believe that those are enforceable.

Guidelines tend to be under the discretion of the person reading them, and thus are sudo enforcable. You might be legally right, but after 500K in legal defense, can your new business handle that? and the 'Who pitches' comment could get a BOP proprieter in serious trouble if he (or his employee) screws that up.

I can see your point but....pretty hard to charge someone without a law or regulation to back it up. In fact I don't think you can legally charge someone with a crime without stating the law/regulation that was violated. I am not talking so much about a proprieter of a BOP but rather any one of us who brewed beer for a friend and charged them for ingredients/ingredients/expertise. Of course I am assuming that someone else pitched the yeast.

Do Your Brew here in Colorado has a BOP in addition to his homebrew store. He is now expanding and plans on adding a small brewery on site. So I think it is possible to have a viable BOP you just need to combine it with something else.

OOPS iPhone sent before I was done so now I'll finish...
I would think the BOP would be a good addition to the store. It would give a novice a chance to try brewing. Then if they like brewing the store can sell equipment and ingredients.

Some one may also use the BOP if for some reason it wan inconvenient to brew at home.

BOP on it's own?? See my previous reply.
