I'd say that's a wee bit bigger than a hobby still, lol. Don't tell, don't sell.

With that large an operation I am surprised it's only a misdemeanor. Also wonder what type of one gallon plastic containers he put it in.

I wondered what kind of jugs he was using too, I figured it was milk/water jugs. He had quite the operation going on for sure.

Just guessing, but I'd say not very long at that location.

Hell of a birthday present ,Tater . Hope that feller wasn't close enough kin that you will be called upon to help make bail .
For you unredneck folks : Feud protocals expect family from many generations to step foreward come fightin time .
Just makin bail doesn't require such a far reaching commitment .

dunno what bread yeast you used fella but I would say tain't necessarily so. Kero must be easier/cheaper yonder than here, I doubt I've seen a kerosene bowser at a service station for half a dozen years at the very least.
