My father in law lives in Jasper,Alabama and I've spent a lot of time there. I love the state but the homebrew law is a freakin joke.

Doesn't Home Depot sell buckets,burners,copper tubing,stainless tubing, rubber hose, and propane? Was the ABC over there takin their stuff? If they weren't then the raid was highly unjust.

Alabama is one of my favorite states(right behind the great commonwealth of Kentucky of course), but their lawmakers need to get a grip.

On second thought screw em. If you're in northern Alabama drive a couple hours up to Four Seasons in Nashville and fill up the truck and take it back to Alabama. Or Rebel Brewer is just about 30 minutes from there.

If your really feelin frisky go about another 1 1/2 hours north and come drink some beer with me. The doors always open to my friends from the south.

The difference is intent. There needs to be intent to brew for it to be illegal.

My point is if I couldn't get that stuff at the HB store Id go to Home Depot and get it with the INTENT to brew.

That'd make YOU illegal, not Home Depot. A homebrew store is possessing equipment "to be used" for homebrewing...intent is clear. Just b/c you intend to brew with Home Depot stuff, does not incriminate HD.

Again, I'm saying it's a good law, just trying to clear up how it works.

Sounds like all you guys in Alabama need to take a trip to Home Depot to pick up some equipment "Not for HomeBrewing"... If I lived in Alabama, screw the state, I'd brew anyway and just call it civil disobedience on my part. Prohibition is just dumb whether it's for Marijuana or Alcohol. The only thing it does is criminalize otherwise good people over an arbitrary law that's in place because of other more evil factors. In this case those appear to be religion and big business with the Southern Baptists and Anheuser Busch being two of the biggest lobbying forces against allowing home brewing in the state. Wow.
