Default Would you still brew if it became illegal

Would you still brew, me personally hell ya. I would probably get more of a kick out of it. Like drinking beer when I was in the teens the fun days.

From the homebrew shop, it would only be illegal to brew, not to sell ingredients.

Probably depends on the penalties, likelihood of getting caught and availability/access to quality ingredients. If penalties were significant or if you could really only end up making alcoholic swill..... no. If it was a little enforced law and premium ingredients were still readily available, I probably would.

I live in Alabama, where is *IS* illegal. I brew.

Yeah, I'm hardcore. You guys talk about how you MIGHT break the law, but I DO it.

Is brewing illegal or drinking illegal in this situation?

If it were brewing then I would likely continue because I doubt the punishment could be super harsh, or that they would even try seeking you out.

If it were drinking I'd be more than likely not too because I would imagine that distributing an illegal substance would be a pretty stiff penalty. Like growing weed, or I guess bootlegging liquor in the 20s.

Now what if beer was outlawed completely.

The only way to drink a beer was to homebrew it? I bet you in that case most of us would risk prison to homebrew! I know I would...I would just brew out in the woods on my in-laws 500 acre farm!

Yep, I would. There are speed limits too, and I rarely go below them.
