I’ve been brewing on my 20 L set up for a couple of years and I’m now thinking of upgrading to a 1 bbl nano-brewery system by joining forces with a few brewing friends. The plan will be to all chip in an equal amount to buy the equipment and then just split the cost of ingredients. We will each take an equal share of the produce for personal use. I am working on the assumption that even with 10-20 syndicate members (top end), this still falls outside of the remit of all of the regulations (HMRC, planning, local authority, sewage discharge permits etc). Before I proceed and to get too many more friends excited about it though, I thought I’d better check on here to see if that is the case. Does anyone have a view? Or should I start ringing all of the relevant authorities and ask them directly? Thanks for any help.
