Yes. Home made wine is legal in Mississippi. Even in dry counties. Our homebrew bill, if passed, will only allow homemade beer in wet counties.

Any idea when this is going to move to the next step. Last I read on AHA website was that it was moving along quickly. Any insight?

My apologies guys - I mistakenly said the House committee hearing was yesterday. It is actually today. I'm about to head that way, will give a report when it is over. We expect favorable passage.

ALSO - we just found out that SB171 will have a public hearing tomorrow before the JC&ED Committee. That means it is time to start letting these guys hear our support!

PLEASE CONTACT THESE SENATORS TODAY - calls, e-mails, faxes it doesn't matter! Just let them hear your voice!

Paul Sanford - paul.sanford@alsenate.gov - (334) 242-7867
Slade Blackwell - sb@sladeblackwell.com - (334) 242-7851
Scott Beason - 334-242-7794
Linda Coleman - linda.coleman@alsenate.gov - (334) 242-7864
Jerry Fielding - jerry.fielding@alsenate.gov - (334) 242-7898
Tammy Irons - tammy@ironslawfirm.com - (334) 242-7888
Greg Reed - greg.reed@alsenate.gov - (334) 242-7894
Clay Scofield - clay.scofield@alsenate.gov - (334) 242-7876

Remember - please be in the state, sign with your name and hometown, and be polite.

You can also look up your Senator here - http://www.legislature.state.al.us/senate/senate.html - on the left side of the page and contact them. Ask them to pass their support for the bill along to Senator Sanford (he is the chairperson of the committee).

We have not worked on the Senate in several years, so they are not as familiar with our support for this bill.

I also pretty much quoted this word for word in a post at reddit's homebrewing sub (and credited you for it). I figure it can't hurt to potentially tap another group that might make a few contacts.

GREAT News guys - HB9 passes committee with flying colors. Next stop - House floor for a full vote!

Thanks to Jason, Dan, Bill, and Joe for presenting our case. All 4 speakers did a great job. Mac (our House Sponsor) hit a home run with his speech. The Committee had some great questions, all of which were answered very well.

Our Senate Sponsor, Bill Holtzclaw, showed his support by attending. Many thanks to him and the work he is doing for us.

We hope tomorrow goes just as well as today did!!
