Home brewing ??

Ok, I figure the laws very state to state, but what is legal as far as home brewing goes ? I guess beer and wine is ok,,, but moonshine is not ?? Is it the alcohol percentage that makes the difference ? If you consume your own product,, is it illegal ? Heck, I'd drink everything I would produce... On that subject, would someone care to point me to a better than average site to get started in beer brewing ? I like budwieser,, so something like that,,, a new "useful" hobby would be cool... Thanks,,,, Monkey

Most places you can brew wine, beer, or just about any type of alcohol that you want except for one and that is moonshine. Even having a still is a problem unless you have it for "educational" purposes. Yes even just making some for yourself could get you in trouble with ATF.

Midwest Brewing Co. And Northern Brewer both have good websites with lots of info. I am currently waiting for my first batch of "American Wheat Ale" to finish fermenting so it can be bottled. Kind of like waiting on my first-born, except it's six weeks and not nine months.

When prohibition was ended in 1933, the making of wine at home was approved but they forgot homebrewing so it was/is up to the states. Here is a link that tells a little bit about it: Homebrewers Association | Legalization, Laws for Homebrewing. The distilling of spirits is federally controlled, and most importantly, taxed. Bottom line, yes you can but there are a lot of hoops and regulations, see: TTB | TTB.gov Distilled Spirits FAQs. Not withstanding, I really want a still and a good recipe.

Monkey, after you have been brewing for a while, you will discover the difference between "real" beer and "American yellow water". Cheers.

That's funny. Some of the "real" books that we kept were the Fox Fire books. Just about all the others went away and/or got bought again for our Kindles when we went full time, thou Thom does not usually re-read books but I do
