re: Virginia Brewers-*WARNING*!!
Greetings to the brewers in the Merry Rose from Robyyan.
Gordon posts about changes in the interpretation of brewing law in
Virginia, and says:
> State representative Gladys Keating has introduced a bill in the Virginia House of Delegates which Jane Woods will sponser in the Senate, to resolve the stink.
> HOWEVER!! The bill makes the following changes:
> 1. Restrict homebrewing to persons over age 21
> 2. Limit the amount of homebrew to 100 gallons per calander year per
> adult over 21, to a max of 200
Federal law currently limits homebrewers to 100 gal. per year per adult
in the household, to a max. of 200 gal. per year per household. (Of
course, 100 gallons a year is a *lot* of beer for personal consumption.)
I don't know for sure what federal law considers an "adult" for this
purpose, but I suspect it is 21.
So these changes in Virginia law are really irrelevant. I hope the rest
of the changes do something about ABC enforcement's attitude toward
