Default Kansas Homebrewers - Proposed Law Change

Just this week in KS, new legislation is being proposed to amend the law to allow consumption by non-family members and at other locations besides the maker's home--including in competitions. I urge KS residents to contact their legislative representatives to encourage them to support the measure.

House bill:
http://www.kslegislature.org/li/b201...asures/hb2223/

Senate bill:
http://www.kslegislature.org/li/b201...easures/sb112/

IMO, here's the best part:
Homemade fermented beverages" means beer or wine produced by a person who is 21 years of age or older, through such person's own efforts and in accordance with K.S.A. 41-104, and amendments thereto, at a place of residence or at another location with permission from the property owner, and not for a commercial purpose, but for consumption by that person or such person's family or guests, or for use at an exhibition, demonstration, judging, tasting, class or sampling, or as part of a contest or competition.

Interesting... I didn't realize it was currently illegal for guests/non-family members to consume homebrew, or to transfer it outside of where it was made.

We have a similar law in CA but now the ABC wants to limit the number of judges at a competition to a "reasonable amount" i.e. "5-7". You might want to clarify that point for any future events.
