Title says it. Not for sale. Internet sources are conflicting so I dont know. To distill a small amount to drink, not fuel nor barter nor to render hookers unconscious is it legal?


I know you can make wine and beer so it stands to reason distilling spirits SHOULD be fine.


Legal?

SSS?

Yup, always thought it illegal. This had me wondering.

I would never advocate violating the law but I would be lying if I said I never considered it.

Yeah, I saw that, too. Excellent video for evidence if they decide to give him shit. Seems kind of foolish to break the law on camera like that, assuming the info is correct (and it's been overwhelming so far in the various threads on the subject.)

No, it is illegal, regardless of whether you intend to sell it or if it is for personal consumption only. It is not illegal for safety reasons, it is illegal for fucking tax reasons. If you look at what is actually required to distill legally, a bunch of the regulations are geared towards knowing exactly how much ethanol you have produced so that taxes can be set accordingly. I bet you could find a (non internet type) link on this that goes all the way back to the Whiskey Rebellion.

Now, I'm not opposed to regulations that say "hey, your still had better be safe enough so that it doesn't blow up your neighbor's house," but as it is now, it really is ridiculous. That being said, if it truly is only for personal consumption, you are a lot less likely to get busted than if you are selling the stuff. They are less likely to notice and if they do, more likely to not want to deal with the paperwork over a couple of gallons. But still, if you do it, you are doing it at your own risk.

Some states have laws as well. In Florida it is a misdemeanor to possess up to a gallon of homemade liquor, over one gallon is a felony. They also have several laws regarding transporting, selling, and possessing "untaxed" liquor as well.

This was posted in another thread on the subject in the SF:
"From US Code: TITLE 26 > Subtitle E > CHAPTER 51 > Subchapter J > PART I > § 5601

§ 5601. Criminal penalties

(a) Offenses Any person who—

(1) Unregistered stills
has in his possession or custody, or under his control, any still or distilling apparatus set up which is not registered, as required by section 5179 (a)"

Apparently the actual physical still itself is kinda like an NFA item.

The Federal Alcohol Administration Act (FAA Act), 27 U.S.C. § 203, requires a
basic permit in order to engage in the business of importing into the United States,
distilled spirits, wine or malt beverages. Likewise, a basic permit is required to engage in
the business of distilling distilled spirits or producing wine. Finally, a basic permit is
required for persons who engage in the business of purchasing for resale at wholesale
distilled spirits, wine or malt beverages. 27 U.S.C. § 203. Retailers are not required to
obtain basic permits under the FAA Act. The FAA Act provides that basic permits are
conditioned upon, among other things, compliance with the Twenty-first Amendment and
other Federal laws relating to its enforcement.

What if you're not setting about The Business? But instead perhaps The Hobby?

You can supposedly get a personal use permit to make fuel alcohol for your own use without having to denature it.

The permit is for very small scale distillation only, and the output cannot be drank.

I do not know any details, this is just something I read.

Can you please stop telling me that I have a hobby of NOT collecting stamps? Seriously, I don't collect stamps. I don't mind that you collect stamps, and it's a fine hobby I'm sure. Please stop calling this thing I don't do, a hobby of mine.

Question is whether they consider building a still to be like building a DIAS...

Imagine getting caught with moonshine, an unregistered machine gun and a carton of untaxed cigarettes.

There are legitimate uses for a still.

Not sure about moonshine but you can make 100 gallons of wine per person, per house hold, up to 200 gallons a year for personal use. I started making some earlier this year. Ive made about 15 gallons so far.

I have family in academia studying distillation ... they agree with the folks here saying that you cannot distill for personal use. So buy the legal stuff if you want to stay on the right side of the law.

I know it's not the real thing (and apparently it is FAR lower quality than the real McCoy), but I just got these:

You'd probably wish you woulda killed someone instead.
