I just got of the phone with an oooooollllllllldd friend of mine that works in a small craft distillery and he says the feds will tag you for anything distilled in any way over about 25% due to the fact that they dont know how you made itand all commercial have some dye in them that is seen under a black light.

Least thats what i was a told.

So correct me if I am wrong here. All of those who say it is illegal. I bet none of you have ever intentionally sped even knowing the risk? Rolled a stop light. Anything technically illegal?

I would say it is more about the intent of the law. It is meant to protect the public, keep some sort of safety in the distillation process and collect a significant source of revenue (taxes) from the production and sale of spirits. It is one reason most ABC agents are called Revenuers.

That said production at home would be technically against the law regardless of method used. However if not sold and only consumed at home it is a victimless crime. Not long ago home brewing was also in some states. For the same reason. As a matter of fact none of us can sell our brew.

So where is the harm? I am tempted to try AJ when good fresh juice comes into season. Just to stay safe may try and keep it under 25%.

Peace from a new guy here......

I'm not saying i wont try it I would just be careful who you tell, it may not be a case of legality but if they think you doing something you shouldn’t be there may be heavy court time in you future.

Along that line is there a yeast that would yeild 18-20% in cider?

The guys over at Basic Brewing Video/Radio personally contacted the Feds and had it explained to them that the process of freeze concentrating was not illegal in any sense. Take it directly from the source that the TTB clearly stated that freeze concentration is perfectly acceptable and thusly, making applejack is as well in this manner.
