Oklahoma law changes
« on: October 14, 2013, 12:58:07 PM »
Hello all, if this is in the wrong place, feel free to move it for me if you can, as I didn't see any other place to put this.  I was reading through the Oklahoma Statutes on this site, and I saw it mentioned about how homebrewers can only brew up to 3.2% alcohol content.  I know that is currently the same law for beers sold in grocery stores and in some bars I believe.  I heard that law is about to change next month, and will be closer to Texas' 6 point laws.  I wonder if this will affect homebrewers here....

for what it's worth, it's 3.2 ABW which is around 4% ABV, not that that makes much difference.

As a very small commercial brewery, we pay a higher state tax if our beer is over 7%ABV.  Just trust me when I say I never brew label a beer above 7%.
