Keeping under the limit is good. I think you could probably store more than 200 gal so long as you have documentation of its production. I have a brew journal that has the dates from start to bottle/kegging. Should be ample documentation if BATFE came knocking. Can't say I am too worried about that happening, but I'm not running a brewery here. Personal consumption for family and friends.

How big are those bottles?

I'm getting 200 gallons x 128 ounces per gallon = 25600 ounces per year

Divide by 12 (for a twelve ounce bottle) and you have 2133 bottles of beer on the wall which, when divided by 365 (days per year), gives a fella 5.84 beers per day, aka a six pack.

Math is not my forte, though.

Anyway, I am glad this thread pointed out that wine and beer are separate, not that I come close to the limits.

It's probably a good idea to stay under the limit. But if you went over a tad I don't think it would be a big deal.

I think it is more of a guideline amount to keep people from mass producing the stuff. But still I would stay under it.

To be honest, I'm not even sure about the rules up here in Canada.

200 gal = about 10000 bottles. 10000 bottles / 365 days is 27.4 bottles a day.

Imagine the weight gain!

I agree. 200 gallons of alcohol is actually a staggering amount for 1 year. Unless you are throwing keggers daily or trying to sell, normal consumption should be covered under that amount.

Also, IMHO, there is a burden of evidence when it comes to the amount produced in a year. If I actually made lets say 213 gallons of beer and my family and I drank 150 gallons that year and kept no records or receipts it I would only only have 163 on hand by years end.

Again, this is my opinion and I do not claim to be a lawer. I don't recommend breaking the law and if you choose to do so it is at your own risk.

When I moved from Maryland to N.C. I had to transfer my entire wine cellar in a pick up truck. The bed was very full and I drove very slow as to not get pulled over.

I live in GA and the limit here is 50 gallons. Kind of lame, but I never have more than 20 on hand so I am not really worried about it.
