Thanks for the update. I listened to the debate last year and it was maddening. As you said, I'm sure that Laird, Wallace and those that share the same beliefs will filibuster again this year. Hopefully it won't get "run out of time" (which in reality means it was purposely stalled) in the Senate this year and will pass.

Hopefully the fact that Mac McCutcheon is on the rules committee will get HB9 to be one of the first on the special order so the moral compass' stalling tactics don't work.
As for Laird and Wallace, I have about as much respect for them as they have for me. Since they think I am a criminal and a bootlegger you can guess how much that is.

I'll email my representative and senator today. I'm excited by this.

I know the limit is pretty low, and there will undoubtedly be some amendments that get tacked on that we don't really like, but my thinking is that once it's passed, we can go back and fix it later.

The biggest deal is that brewing no longer becomes a felony under the new law. Violations of the quantity (if busted) would only be a class c misdemeanor.

Someone already mentioned 15g per quarter. Last year I brewed 55g total. That sounds good. But right now I have 1 batch in keg (~2.5g left), 1 batch cold crashing (5g), 1 batch in fermenter(5g), and a 3g batch in bottles aging. I am illegal under the new Alabama law since I have about 15.5 gallons of home brew in my house. It is rare for me to have so much but in the winter it is easier to keep fermentation temps in control so I am getting a bit ahead.

PS. I am from Mississippi so this irrelevant for me. Just giving my 2 cents.

Its good to hear AL is catching up with rest of the nation. HB is a great hobby with reward.

I've asked all my family and friends in Alabama to contact their Rep's and ask them to vote for this.

As far as the limited quantities, 15gal is better than 0gal. I'll take anything that doesn't make a hobby a felony.

Edit: I just sent an email to both my Representative and Senator.

Here in NC my limit is 100 gallons a year, not a whole lot more than 15 gallons per quarter. No one has ever come to my house to check and I've been brewing 3 years now, so I wouldn't sweat it.
