I locked it because it would have gone nasty. It always does. It's our policy to shut them even if they aren't out of control.

No politics.

And also, underage is the key factor here. You shouldn't be posting on a beer/wine brewing forum if you aren't of age. Period.

I thought about locking it last night but didn't. I should have.

I know the topic at hand was underage (21) drinking/brewing, but the discussion was about the law as well. How many poeple on here brew more than their yearly allotment?

Touché, sir. Of course, keeping track of the amount of beer you make isn't quite as straightforward as clearing being underage.

We've also had discussions about adding certain currently illegal mind-altering substances to beer. Everything is for information purposes only, anyway.

Yeah, give the guy/kid credit for asking and trying to be informed. If he really wanted, he could have just never admitted to being underage and continued brewing. We simply tell him that it is illegal, and that's it. It's not our job or the moderators, (i think), to act as police on this website.
Just my 2 cents.

I'm not giving anyone underage any credit for coming on a homebrew forum. Yeah, let's teach a kid to brew cheap cider to get smashed and maybe tear up my neighborhood or get in a car. I'm not having any part of that.

Let's also refresh some things....

You agreed to this statement when you signed up on this forum:

YOU MUST BE OF LEGAL AGE TO PRODUCE HOME BREW TO REGISTER AND READ THIS FORUM.
Pay close attention to the "violative of any laws" statement, and specifically the last statement that you read before you gain user access here.
FWIW, I did not make that last statement bigger or bold, it already was.

Underage poeple have no right to be here, period.
