OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahomans would be able to annually brew up to 200 gallons of beer for personal use under a measure passed Wednesday morning by the state House of Representatives.

Home brewers would have to obtain a state license similar to one already issued to home wineries under House Bill 2348 by Rep. Colby Schwartz, R-Yukon. The beer could only be used for personal consumption and could not be sold.

The bill passed 76-19 and proceeds to the Senate.

WooT! Hmmm. I already have a license for wine wonder if it'll be the same license.

This is awesome news. Last year we were finally legal here in Utah. I was able to take the dark glasses and mustache off while brewing.

That's great news! Though I can't believe this is even an issue! Calirado has plenty of issues but I'm glad this isn't one of them

I'm in Oklahoma but haven't gone to get the license (just started doing wine / beer in the last month). Tough process or is it pretty much a "fill this out and give us your money" type process?

Wow, I'm shocked that this wasn't already done. I know of at least a couple LHBS in OK.

I guess it's not technically legal with the statutes as written now (since they prohibit what is not discretely allowed), but I doubt you could find any homebrewer ever charged.

Nope. fill this out, fax it, and wait 3 weeks.

there "was" no fee.

ABLE admits that they have neither the staff or the inclination to charge anyone unless there is proof of illeagal sales.

This change makes me happy only because I tire of neighbor hood trooper dry by casing my joint when I am brewing. And because it will be less intimidating when the neighbor snoop calls me in for distilling hooch in my garage.

Furthermore, it will lift the uncertainty about public functions around homebrew and allow for transport stipulations to avoid an open container charge. Might even lift the ban on postal exchange of alcohol.

That's federal and not likely to change.
