I have been trying to find an answer to this question all over the net without any luck... I just received an assignment to incirlik AB, Turkey and was wondering if I can legally brew in the country. I checked the a
APO restrictions and saw no restrictions for ingredients like you would find for APOs in Iraq or Afghanistan. I already have the logistics for getting ingredients figured out and the only remaining hurdle is the legality. If anyone could provide some insight I would greatly appreciate it, thanks!

I don't have an answer for you. I just wanted to point out that, in my not quite fully caffeinated state, I thought the title of the thread was "brewing in a turkey." I was wondering what the BrewDog guys were up to now.

Base Legal at Incirlik can point you in the right direction. If there's not host nation sensitivities there could be a GO, or Commander directive. Also, what's the policy of propane in dorms, ect?

I thought about contacting base legal about this, but i would prefer not to attract unnecessary attention to myself or brewing given the general public ignorance about our hobby.

I've spent a few months on that base before. One of the more popular things to do on and off base is drinking. That and homebrewing being very lucrative I can't see the wing issuing a g.o. against it. As far as propane in the dorms... I'm taking my wife with me and we will be in base housing. Since my original post I've managed to find two people on base that brew so I'm hoping they can get me some info. Thanks for the ideas guys!

I thought when on military bases it's considered us territory where us laws apply instead of local law?

I'm not sure if it's been done with turkey but I know chicken used to be popular. I don't see why you couldn't use a turkey but would probably need a fairly large fermenter.

There's actually a few breweries in Turkey with Efes being the most popular. In regards to the base being US territory, that is correct in most cases. However, it's a NATO base and belongs to the Turks, they just rent us the real estate and it falls under their jurisdiction. I keep finding more and more info about brewing there particular from brits, haven't found anything saying it's illegal yet... There's a guy there that works in customs that brews, trying to get in touch with him so he can give me the skinny. If customs is doing it, it must be legal
