Sorry but State law cannot trump Federal Law. If there is a Federal Law all states must abide by that, they can create their own law where a lesser amount of alcohol can be produced but they cannot go over what Federal law states.I am not sure about this but I think that in some cases State law trumps Federal law so you might want to check that out. That is, even though the Feds say a household of two can make 200 gallons, the State you live in may limit production to less than that. Here in Ohio, it is the same, i.e. 200 gallons for a household of two and it was that way when I lived in PA.
You got that right. It's all about the money. I can buy 10,000 gallons at the State Controlled liquor store but make more than 15 gallons per quarter and you're guilty of a Class B Misdemeanor (I. Am. So. Scared. )I do find that Alabama limit a bit excessively limiting.
