OP, you are not drinking enough of your product... Don't stockpile it so much, live the good life and share your wine with fam and friends.

Good brewing to ya,

I'm def not stock piling. Half the bottles were started 2 years and I just got around to bottling this summer and the other half are only a year old.

I think in Texas it production and store up to 200 gallons. For each person the age of 21 and over in the house hold. I may be wrong but I'm pretty sure I read that off a gov. Website somewhere. Either way 200 gallons is way more then I can produce at the moment.

I sent an inquiry to the TTB in April 2013 which may clarify some things. But you must check your state level as it will detail any specifics. I know at one point the state of AL was being limited to 15 gallons per quarter in stored product. It was going back to the table.


The question:
From: xxxxxxxxxx
Sent: Tuesday, April 02, 2013 8:08 PM
To: TTB Internet Questions Subject: Home winemaker year limit inquiry

Can you clarify how the yearly limit for home winemaker is established--is it based off of the calendar year the ferment is initiated?

Thank you, xxxxxxx

-----------------------------------------

The response:
"The Federal Law and Regulation simply state a limit to the amount that you can produce per calendar year. It is always the winemaker’s decision as to when to declare the wine to be “produced” but in general I would recommend that the amount started to ferment each year and the amount declared as produced both be within the annual limit. Also keep in mind that the production must be in compliance with state and local laws so you will want to verify what limits may apply in your state and local area.

Sincerely,

While it is hard to maintain when some homebrew was made any effort at records help. If someone really wants to make a stink they can and will.
I am with camp C. If you have some one crawling up your anus throwing the book at you, you have been doing something wrong and they have been watching for a few years.
