Seems to be a case of state laws being out of sync with the federal law that changed in '78.

"Oklahoma, Alabama and Mississippi are the only states that have yet to make home brewing beer legal."

Yup! So support the AHA, people! They do wonders for this hobby.

I'll be moving to Oklahoma in a couple of years. I sure hope they change the law, I'd hate to be a criminal.

Tulsa has a great Homebrew Supply House called "High Gravity Homebrew Supply". I've been to this shop several times and it looks like they are doing well even if it is illegal to brew your own in Oklahoma.

sounds more like an illegal activity that would probably never ever need to be enforced unless you started selling beer from your garage. kind of like the old "beer in a paper bag" gimmick in NYC with the "i didn't see it, so maybe it's not happening".

Well, maybe. Scot Oberman got a visit from the Alabama ABC because of an article written about him that ran in the LA Times.

Support AHA. The hobby depends on it.
