I didn't keep track last year. It was the first year. But I guesstimate at around 30-35. Got a Mr. Beer kit for christmas and more buckets, so planning on doubling that this year.

Isn't there a forum rule at HBT against posting about your illegal activities? Brewing over the limit, distilling, etc..? I mean, hey, 400+ gal is something to be proud of, but I'd keep that to yourself just to be safe.

Unless he just hasn't mentioned his two roommate assistant brewers!

Side question: I know the laws vary by state/country, but in the USA, isn't the standard limit 200 gallons per of age adult per year? Or is the household limit 200 gallons?

If there were 3 adults over 21 living under the same roof, could they legally brew 600 gallons per calendar year?

I believe the limit is actually 100gal per adult, with a maximum of 200gal per household.

~55 gallons and 11 batches in 2010 for me.... which is the same volume I brewed last year with one less batch.

Good times!


ETA: 42119 + 55 = 42174

He's correct. 100 gal per year for one adult in the household, 200 gal for 2 or more adults in the household. Some states restrict your production even further. However, as was stated previously, this is almost impossible to enforce, but I wouldn't parade my law breaking brewing capacity on the internet.

Complete bulls#!t if you ask me. I'm not worried about it.

However, I haven't brewed more than 200 yet in any year (But who knows)

That's fine, and you probably don't have to worry about it, but just don't brag about it on the internet and you'll have even less to worry about -especially if it breaks forum rules. That's all I'm saying.

Here is a thread with some juicy debate about this. It starts with a homebrewer who was arrested after posting on the internet...

You are assuming that Conroe lives in the United States. I only see that he lives in beer hell. Personally, I only believe in beer heaven.
