I think we've pretty clearly covered that we can fly with homebrew, but how does this factor in with flying internationally, and only being allowed to take x amount of alcohol in with you? I always assumed it was for purchased alcohol, so the gov't doesn't lose out on tax's...but you can't sell your home brew, so it has no monetary value, thus isn't taxable? 15% tax on $0.00 is still 0.

Anyway, if i am already bringing in 1L of spirits, can I fly internationally and bring in home brew on the same flight as well?

Everything is taxed. Even if you cant resell it...
Homebrew is statued by State law and personal consumption. I dont think you can transport it legally anywhere.

I've smuggled a 12-pack of Yuengling from DC to Dallas in nothing but the box it came in surrounded by dirty clothes. But its probably better to be safe than sorry!

Im suffering a major quandry then! I am currently living (and brewing in Australia) I am traveling to Canada for the holiday's and want to bring back a few select beers that I brewed and proud of to share with my father.

Do you envision I would suffer any problems by checking half a dozen bottles? to go from Australia to Canada (via US?) I am checking a 1.14L bottle of rum that is duty free.
