All Grain Brewing / Re: Confused brewing

I make a wheat beer with very much the same grain bill, but different hops. I agree that it is a tasty hot weather brew.

Based on what I'm reading here, TT should stay. A lot of people still use it, so why not?

but didn't you give the government taxes when you bought the ingredients to make the beer?  perhaps not if you grew some or all of them yourself, but even then you'd have to pay some taxes for growing supplies and equipment (and water???)

Good point. It's not completely tax free, but without paying taxes for ingredients and the big alcohol tax, it's about as close as you can get. No doubt that cleaning supplies, energy, etc. are taxed.

I've already brewed  17, 10 gallon batches. You're correct, at 10 gallons a batch it adds up fast.

I'd say you were legal, if you can prove the 100 gallons was produced in the previous year.

I get to drink tax free beer.

They're not becoming distributors, but they have acquired a distribution company and are there fore protecting them. Unless I'm mistaken, they're still wholesalers as well.

I'm not sure I understand the reasoning behind this decision.

Probably $$$.

That's a loss for the homebrewing community.  :(

They're protecting their distributors, which is very common practice.

It's 100 gallons per person or 200 gallons per household ( 2+ adults) each calendar year. You can't slide the 12 month period.

Before dumping, take your best shot. You might get lucky.

If you don't already do so, make your own tortillas. There's no comparison between them and the manufactured ones. A little tricky at first, but once you get the hang of it, they only take a few minutes to make.
