You've all heard, I'm sure, that the U.S. Government allows one to brew
100 gallons per year for a single-person household, or 200 gallons per year for
a double-person household. (This adds up to roughly 1066 bottles of beer
and twice that for a two person household).
I think the law also says something about the beer being for personal
consumption only (in other words, don't sell it. I think you're allowed
to give it away).
Something I recently heard, and wondered if anyone knew for certain, was
that you are supposed to file an tax form and pay a nominal fee for each
batch. Anyone know for sure? What are the specifics?
