Also, talk to your local university agricultural extension, they'll often give assistance to people getting started, from lab facilities, to consulting, to references if they can't personally help you.

When you open for business, let me know so I can order a case!
Thanks, but I'm confused? I thought you said I don't need nutritional facts on my label if I produce less then 250,000 gallons a year?
A lab is like $700 to test everything? Can't I skip that, because I'm gonna be WAY under 250,000 gallons? Or could I have trouble with TTB for not catering to that FDA thing?

And when I open ill totally let you know

Remember that some states go above and beyond what the federal regulations require. It may be in Idaho you'd be fine, but CA may have other requirements. Hence my original comment. You may also have special taxes associated with what your doing.
