Happy Birthday, Trishy!

There are no laws prohibiting home brewing, that refers to beermaking.

Home "macerating" of absinthe isn't illegal either.

You mean home distillation, which IS illegal, be it absinthe, or any other liquor!

I found some law about this online...

American Law concerning Absinthe

If I'm reading it right, homebrewing isn't illegal per se, but requires a license??

By the way, thank you for remembering my birthday, that is thoughtful. I shall spend my evening off of work doing what I normally do - trying to get as much writing done as possible...a never-ending task, but I enjoy the processes (online content mostly, but other venues, too...)

One doesn't require a license to homebrew...the only restriction placed upon the homebrewer, is a certain number of maximum gallons per household per year, but I've never heard of that being enforced.

Once again, we are talking home BREWING here, not absinthe macerating.

I think most of the laws about legal distillation can be found at www.atf.gov but that is only at the federal level. There are also state laws to consider.

Some brief info...

Anyone can buy retailed alcohol and macerate it with herbs without legal implications, so long as it is for personal use and is not being resold (which is a big no-no).

Distillation opens up a virtual 'pandora's box' of applicable federal and state implications. Said implications begin with the mere ownership of a device that constitutes an unlicensed still (a criminal offense in itself), worsen with operation of the same, and become exceptionally damning if the product of such activity is bought/sold.

The 'license' mentioned refers to acquiring a license from the ATF to own/operate a still. While the concept seems simple enough, in actuality it's easier to acquire a license to own/operate fully automatic weapons.

In Virginia, it would be easier to obtain components for WMDs than to get permission to buy Everclear, though you can get it from eleswhere online.

Then again, in Virginian only the missionary position between legally married people is legal.

Hmmmm?

It seems now, that not only are you not supposed
to discuss home distillation, you will also not be able
to discuss Spirits Corner.
