Good on ya! But bummer about what they won't allow.
Yeah! California here I come (San Diego NHC 2015)! As if there was any doubt.
I don't understand why no LHBS demo brews. I understand not having samples, but demo brews? What about shops that offer classes?
Q. Can “home brew” supply stores make homemade beer or wine for demonstration purposes?A. No. The law provides that beer or wine may only be produced without a license in a “household” for “personal or family” use. Beer or wine produced at a “home brew” supply store or any othersimilar location for any purpose, including demonstration, would not comply with this provision.
baby steps, and an improvement. Congrats!and... "The National Homebrewers Conference...is expected to draw 4000-5000 attendees in 2015..."dayum, that's big!
I wonder if they could brew and dump before pitching yeast. Would certainly be wasteful. Maybe an LHBS can team up with a local brewery.
