Default HBT is Legal Eagle???

So i noticed how evn some of the smallest offenses to the law are kind of frowned upon and not condoned to be discussed here. For example accepting kegs from a bar, or distilling. So i have to ask, anyone here stop brewing after 100 gal annually?

Yep, In fact, my last beer I only fermented four gallons, because had I gone five I would've been over the limit

200 gallons is 40 batches (at 5 gallons each), which is just over 3 batches per month. Yeah, I'm under that.

I've heard it said that as long as you don't have 200 gallons at one time, you can't get caught for it... ie, no proof. I just don't brew that much because I don't have the time and can't drink that much.

So you intentionally posted a topic that may well lead people to admit having broken the law?

Distilling doesn't exactly qualify as a "small offense." It's illegal under federal law and will result in a felony conviction.

Isn't it obvious? He's a carnie. A shiftless, troublesome lot if you ask me.

67 posts are you're trying to stir up ****?

You been paying attention to any of the stuff being discussed in state legislatures? There have been a couple of states that have just legalized homebrewing, but a homebrewer was just arrested in Alabama and there are murmors about a few other states not viewing our hobby as favorably.

The owner of the site - the guy whose sandbox we get to play in - had decided that he doesn't want to be peripherally involved in any of the controversial areas. So, if you're underage, lurk don't post. If you want to talk drugs... there are other forums for that. If you want to talk about distilling, there are plenty of other forums for that.

Tx doesn't want to risk being shut down or sued, and I don't blame him in the least.

I believe his intent was to uncover some hypocracy on the forum.
