If you don't know who to write, you can find out here. If your zip code has multiple districts, you can use this map.

Feel free to use my letter as a template and add to it, etc...
DONE! Thanks!

This may be off topic, but where is everyone from? I'm new to 'Bama...

Considering attending Suds of the South in a few weeks.

FINALLY!!!!

So we need to plan a party where we all bring less than the allotted 20 gallons to celebrate.
Yes you are. Until this passes the house and the Governor signs it, we(those of us brewing in alabama) are all still crooks.

Harvest here, but no one knows Harvest, AL except people who live here but Huntsville is recognizable to most.

I got a reply from Phil (forget the last name) one of the two reps I emailed:

Quote:
Thanks Gary. I have not read the bill. I will grab it and be ready. I do plan to vote for this and will unless there is something in the bill that is not good we might get it passed. I know the Senate passed it.
Phil
I replied:

Thanks! I hope we can get this passed, having homebrewing "technically" illegal is just another one of those things people use as an example of why Alabama is still a backwards hick state, and it's just silly regardless. As a proud lifelong resident of Alabama and a progressive conservative I support any measures that removes any negative stigma from our State.

Maybe we can work on this gambling fiasco next, so people aren't spending millions of hard earned Alabama dollars buying lottery tickets in Georgia and Tennessee and going to Mississippi to gamble. Keep that money here instead I say.

Thanks for your reply, it was refreshing to know that there is someone listening.
