They are getting your business. I'm sure they don't really care all that much what you are shipping...

I love my Thermapen
It's pricey, but I wish I'd spring for it years ago.
So why not get a legislator (or several) to sponsor a bill changing the law? That's what you're going to have to do anyway, unless the plan is for someone else to see the petition and take action.
Yeah, that was my point. I don't really get what a random internet petition will accomplish.
Should. But, not necessary. There have been people signing from California, Massachusetts, Colorado, etc.
Strength in numbers!!
I'd advise you to limit it to only OH residents. Based on my experience getting the laws changed here, OH legislators don't care what people in other states might think.
If it turns out that you end up losing money over time, will you still continue to do it? Sounds like you have very little overhead, which is a boon, but when you consider how much your time is actually worth it doesn't seem possible to even break even on a 10 gallon system. OTOH if you are doing it to prove a concept and get someone on board who wants to fund a real brewery then it could be totally worth it. Just my .02. Not trying to discourage anyone from their passions.
As I've always said, I like to hear everyone's point of view. I live in a town of about 30,000. the next bigger town is about 75 miles away. I'm not in this to really make a money. But, I will say that my business (that is working out so far) shows that my partner and I will net, about $120 for a full day in the brewery? The math works out to be about $6/hr. I know of know other hobby that I love so much that will aactually pay me $6 to do. Can I quite my day job? NOT EVEN CLOSE. And it may be that after a couple years of this, we decide it's not worth it. But I can tell you that a day in the brewery with the woman I love, making darn good beer, is a very enjoyable activity. We met because of homebrew two years ago. And, we're getting married on the 18th.
But, I know our model does not work for most folks when they think about "going pro." I post my story and experience to show it is actually quite simple to go legit, and sell one's beer.
