Will someone please post the relevant "federal" law regarding the making of liquor for personal use?
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.
27 U.S.C. § 204(d).
