Default Making Your Own Wine Is Illegal!

Making Your Own Wine Is Illegal..... FALSE!

Over the last few months locally, I have heard this over and over.
Considering i live in a Mormon controlled state and the church is the state i am not surprised.

Ever since October 14, 1978 it has been perfectly legal for Americans to make their own wine and beer.
This is when President Jimmy Carter signed into law legislation introduced by Senator Alan Cranston of California.H.R. 1337
This exemption went into effect in February 1979.

You can make up to 100 gallons per year. If you live in a household with another adult, both of you can make up to a total of 200 gallons per year.
It can be for your own personal consumption or to hand out has wine making gifts to friends and relatives. Just make sure you don't sell it. That would be illegal!
