Home brewers unite! Yesterday the Senate passed HB99. We are one step closer to Georgia being on par with the feds. Soon, we may also be able to host our own competitions instead of going to Tennessee or the Carolinas.
Just for perspective for those that aren’t home brewers, the current limit is 50 gallons a year in Georgia. For your average beginner that equates to only 10 batches a year. So you only get to brew about once a month.
The federal statute, and the current proposed changes, allows home brewers to make up to 100 gallons a year and up to 200 gallons a year if there are at least two people in the house that are of age.
Why does that make a difference? If you compete in homebrew competitions, they are awesome by the way, you often need to bring a six pack for the judges. Though, this amount can vary depending on the competition. Depending on how often you compete, or have family over, you can go through your stash pretty quick.
All for Brew, and Brew for All.
