Default distilling question

I know this isn't a beer question but I don't know where to put it. About a year ago, a bill was introduced to make distilling legal. Has anyone heard what happened to this?

House Resolution 3249 ?

Anymore discussion and you'll have to register with HDT.

Strange. Now HR 3249 refers "...to establish procedures for Federal agencies to provide an equitable remedy for employees who were mistakenly placed in the wrong retirement system during the transition from the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) to the Federal Employees' Retirement System (FERS)."http://georgewbush-whitehouse.archives.gov/omb/legislative/sap/105-2/HR3249-h.html I wasn't thinking of switching to HDT. I was just curious about what happened to it and if homebrewed whiskey would ever become legal. For now, I'll sip my Imperial Stout and be happy.

Distilling IS legal. As long as it's water.

You know they start at 1 every year right. the 2001 HR 3249 was about distilling. The one you linked to was 1998.

Unless you live in NZ, home distilling is very illegal.

The reality is that unless your production is sizeable enough to attract the attention of the gubment, they aren't going to care much.

I know people who operate small stills on a hobby level, producing very fine spirits with the same attention to detail and craft as I do as a brewer.

Unfortunately, a serious discussion on distilling can't happen on this forum because of long-standing rules.

Didn't you post recently that you HATED people who posted IB4tl posts in threads like these?

I can't find that cool animated ib4tl Star Trek gif I once posted...the one with iirc Jordy rolling under the door.
