Default Texas Brewer's: Erlenmeyer Flasks

Supposedly you need a permit from the Department of Public Safety Narcotics Service to buy an Erlenmeyer Flask. Part of the permit includes signing a "Consent to Inspect" which gives my consent "to inspect the area of intended use". Does this really apply to home-brewers trying to make a starter or is there a loophole?

Wow.. Texas is f'd up. I feel your pain, lived there for years. That's something pretty local, haven't heard anything about it here.

You know it is bad when you have to have a permit to just have a Flask.

Meth Labs have to be rampant out there. :|

This is part of living in the South. Everyone who lives here is running a meth lab out of their ramshackle RV.

This is part of the reason I have to show ID to buy Claritin.

What?! - I bought a 2000 mL flask from AHS six months ago - no form to fill out and no problem with the order.

LHBS in San Antonio actually got ratted out by a customer for selling flasks w/o a permit!!! What a d-bag. May the fleas of a thousand camels infest his pubic hair and the bacteria of a thousand strains infect his wort

They keep them in the back of the store and only bring them out if you ask for them, but did not give a hard time about it. He did seem a little embarrassed that he had to sneak around. Like meth heads frequent homebrew suppliers...Really? I can buy them online all day, but your going to harass small business owners? All our neighbors already THINK we cook meth, now the popo have justification to search our houses.

God Bless Texas

Buy over the internet from any vendor who sells them. Homebrew stores, wine stores, science glassware stores, and even ebay. No one will ask you to sign a form. I believe I got mine from More Beer a few years ago.
