You can try this argument: homebrewing is even legal in Utah.

Good luck.

The bill came up for a vote in the senate a few minutes ago. It failed by a margin of 7-13 (with about 15 abstentions). Still waiting on the final roll call to see where the opposition came from. Some of it was certainly the teetotaler Republicans, but I think there was Democratic opposition as well to get that many nay votes.

Ok. I just got a hold of the roll call of the voting. Keep in mind this was a Republican-sponsored bill. Republicans voted against it by a margin of 3-8 with 3 abstentions. Democrats pretty much just stayed away from the bill. They voted 4-5 with 12 abstentions. Not a good day for Alabama homebrewers.

My God, what kind of republicans do you have there? Thats embarrassing (as a republican). Course yours are probably the strict-baptist types vs the South Park Catholic types that we tend to be around here

Pretty much. We have at least a few down here that honestly believe the prohibition was a good thing and should be brought back.

Yep, that is what they are saying on the Free The hops website....They amended the original bill to the following:

(c) Not more than 20 gallons of beer, mead, cider, or wine produced under this
section may be removed from the premises where it was produced
and may be transported for personal and noncommercial uses,

but hey it's a start...!

20 gallons per homebrewer.......I think that will do, (4) 5 gallon kegs each. thats plenty if you know how to pass it around,.....lol
man, this has taken a long time and a lot of calls. but now I know it can happen for just regular people without using a 30k a year lobbyist......

http://www.legislature.state.al.us/senate/senate.html

go there and type sb153 in search instruments and then view, it will take you to the bill and show you the recorded votes


but it follows the Federal statute of 200 gallons per household if there are 2 or more adults living there and 100 gallons if you live alone.
