I have no idea if this is true, but I bet the original law was about fees and licensing. I presume that you need a special license to sell to go beer, and pay a fee for that license. The label (be it...

First, if it was an extract kit with steeping grains, you likely did not miss your original gravity by 6 points. If you add the right amount of extract to the right amount of water, you will get the...

I like the direction this seems to be going.
