Yes, in Germany you are allowed to brew up to 200L (50 gal)per person per household. We are supposed to alert the Mayor (custom) and tell them of our intent to brew, when we brew, along with the OG. There is a tax that i understand is around 2 euro or so a year if you write the letter correctly. I stumbled across one Germanys webpage a few days ack and he gave an example of the letter along with the ways he manipulated it. Unfortunatly, i cant find it. This page gives an example. http://www.speidels-braumeister.de/Rechtliches:_:30.html?language=en Regardless, I dont want to brew according to their BS Reinheitsgebot, thats why i am brewing here anyway. Worse comes to worse, i guess i can go on post, Ahhh America, only a gate guard away.
