HB354 is back on the calendar for tomorrow. It's #4 on the docket so maybe we will get a vote.

Here's to hoping that my Eeyore-like outlook on this is unfounded (for once).

Pardon my ignorance on this issue, but I'm curious...

Is it legal to ship brewing supplies (equipment, ingredients, etc) to Alabama residents?
Can residents order from on-line out of state suppliers?

Yes we can order from online out of state suppliers. We also have HBS in Alabama.
It's legal to buy anything and everything homebrew here but it's illegal to brew.

Now that is bass ackwards and flippin insane.

It's OK to pay the state tax on equipment and ingredients but not OK to put the kettle on a flame or feed the yeast.

Wow.

They would have a hard time keeping the flame out under my brewpot.

Good luck on the vote this week...Keep up the good fight.

Since there are no taxes generated form homebrew itself they don't seem to care whether it's legal or not.
They don't seem to realize that homebrew legalization translates into more tax revenue due to higher sales on ingredients and equipment.
I think we have a good enough bill to get it passed this time. It is sponsored by 14 representatives from every walk of life so that is a good thing. The bill is highly restrictive but if that is what it takes to get the toe in the door then so be it.

Agree, aubie.

The biggest problem is the "morals police". I wrote my rep, but I think he is a solid Bible thumping no. He has voted against every beer related bill that has come up.

I got this email today:

The homebrew bill is on the calendar for tomorrow (Apr. 19).

The bad news is it's behind the illegal alien bill revision.
