Yeah, OLD AZZ thread but this explains a lot! I can't find anything 'concrete' on the subject either, except for this post. I have been convinced for a while now that I can brew a better 'fruit' beer than any of the local breweries. I also don't like extracts. They make my beers 'twangy'...

If this is still valid then how do I go about finding out why? Seems such a stupid law...

Thanks for starting this thread, I'm actually curious about the same thing. I'm still a newbie, but our eventual goals are to sell the beer we brew. I guess I still have a lot of research ahead of me.

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

I believe the Federal Jimmy Carter law in 1978 allows 100/gallon per person and UP to 200/gallons is at least two adults live in the home. Each State can regulate that more but not less.

You can give away your Homebrew and share it with Friends and Family Better not get paid for it; the Man will come knocking on your door......

Wow, I think I'm the sole HBT survivor of this original thread. I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing yet. I remember many of the names though

Well, there once was this guy here who told us the legend of making beer from grain and fresh hops and not just a powdery mix with rabbit pellets. More enamoring was doing 15g batches! He told stories around the virtual campfire and we bowed in his general direction. Can't remember his damn name now. His avatar was some green glass and was from Oregon. Who knows, maybe he was just a stoned hippie drinking out of a 40

True story though. Probably 50 of us back then
