Just brew 10 gallons of week of whatever and mix in some juice, you'll get more than 100 beers.
100 beers, but then...... what should I say when people ask for a second beer?

I absolutely love your honesty.
I don't see how you're going to get above the 10% mark without long-term fermentation.

Good luck though.

My advice: make plenty of homebrew, and enjoy with your Fraternity brothers...BUT don't serve it at parties....especially if there is a door charge. It isn't worth the risk just to save everyone a few $$
Thanks for worrying about me, but we've got it covered. Our fraternity is on good terms with the local police. We actually talked to them about it. They know what we do, but we've never caused any serious trouble for them before like other greeks, so they were suprisingly OK with it. Weird right?

Mostly because it never leaves the house. Brewed, mixed, and drank under the same roof. To the outside world, it basically never existed.

There's also some weird law about gaining academic insight and knowledge about brewing. my major concentration is Brewery Science, so I have a legitimate reason to brew quantities that may exceed 200 gallons. For academic insight of course. I've yet to find that law though, deputy probably was just fooling with me.

They were strict on the money of course, money never changes hands with homebrew. We knew that at the beggining.
