Is making wine illegal?!

Question: Is making wine illegal!?
Everything what you make at home is your privite thinks! Unless u start selling !Www@FoodAQ@Com

Home wine production is legal up to 200 gallons per year per person!. Technically its the production of beer and wine up to 200 gallons total!. But if you want 200 gallons of wine, go for it so long as you make no beer!.

You must, however, be 21 to make the wine!. However, it is still illegal in Alabama (the last state to ban this)!.

If you are serious about making wine (and you can make high quality wine for around $2 a bottle, so why wouldn't you!?), then I suggest you get a proper wine kit!. Features a fermenting bucket or glass carboy and a 5L box of grape concentrate!. Unlike store bought grape juice, this box uses real wine making grapes like Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel or Chardonnay, plus many more!. And you would use a true winemakers yeast, capable of producing the 13%ABV that wine has!. If you go with store bought grape juice and baker's yeast, you'll end up with about a 5% alcohol sweet syrupy off-flavored Concord grape mess, utterly unpleasing!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Making wine at home is legal, but some places have restrictions on the quantity you can make at a time!. Hothgar was close, but the way it was explained to me by by local brewshop is "You can make 100 gallons per year per person over the age of 21 in your household, up to 200 gallons total"!. This means that a household that has one adult can make 100 gallons per year, with two adults you can make 200 gallons per year!. With three adults you can still only make 200 gallons per year!. Even if you are the only one who drinks wine, if there are 2 or more legal-aged adults in your household you can make the 200 gallon maximum per year (or within the limits in your area)!. Check for any restrictions in your area before beginning to avoid breaking any local laws!.
Hothgar also said it is illegal in Alabama!. This is also inaccurate!. You can make wine at home in Alabama, but they severely restrict the amount you can make!. They allow only 5 gallons at a time!. You have to consume a portion of that before you can make more!. If you make 5 gallons and consume 3 gallons you can then make 3 more gallons, as long as you do not exceed the 5 gallons total!.


No!. Making beer and wine at home is perfectly legal

Distilling alcohol to make liquor, however, is illegal!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
