Excellent review of the federal law Matt.  One thing that often gets overlooked with the homebrew law is that while President Carter signed the bill in October 1978, the law did not actually go into effect until February 1, 1979.  Also, I think President Carter gets more than his fair share of credit for legalizing homebrewing.  Homebrew legalization was part of a much larger omnibus transportation bill.  Carter likely did not care much about the homebrewing provision that was buried in the bill.  The primary proponent of homebrew legalization and sponsor of the homebrew bill that was attached to the transportation bill was Senator Alan Cranston.

Another interesting piece of this story is that In January 1977, Representative Conable introduced HR 2028, to legalize homebrewing. The bill included the exemption from tax and the 200/100 gallon limits, but didn't include the allowance for use at organized events.

Cheers!
