I homebrew for a hobby. The ingredients and equipment are getting quite expensive though. I know I can't legally sell it. My friend though, says it's perfectly acceptable and legal for him to buy the ingredients, I would make it and we would split the output. Between friends, it's probably alright if he has a hand in making it and gives me the ingredients directly?
It's like baking a cake, he brings the supplies, I have the oven, we make it together and we split the cake afterwards.
But what if his friends and friends of his friends are asking me, but instead of giving me the supplies directly they want to just pay cash. And only for the "share" of the ingredients that are in the output they want.. I told them no, but just curious on the legality here.
Also, for sake of argument. How much trouble could I get into for selling directly? I would never do that. But my friend is saying it's not a big deal. I want to prove him wrong and give him some idea of how much of a big deal it really is.
