Petition to let the stills flow

Hello everyone, my name is Frank, and I favor myself as a liquid historian. For many years I've brewed my own beers and wines from recipes dating back as old as the roman empire. There is one thing that drives me crazy. I cannot produce the most interesting recipes in my collection.

For the last 4 years I have been trying to collect signatures to try to get my government to legalize home distilling in order to reconnect with America's heritage. George Washington was one of the biggest and most successful whiskey distillers of the 1700's. Unforunately today is very different from then.

I am asking for any and all signatures for the petition. I need 24999 signatures to get a responce from the United States government for legalizing home distilling. Getting things changed at the federal level is paramount. I know there is growing movement to change laws at the local level.

Washington State Passes Initiative 1183

November 8th, 2011

Washington State voters have ended the state monopoly on liquor sales. State run liquor stores will be closed and sold. Private wholesalers and retailer will now be able to sell spirits to the public.

It is widely reported that Coscto, the wholesale club chain based in Issaquah, Washington, provided substantial support for the initiative.

Any advice?

My friends and I are trying to start a small distillery in VT and we are still in the planning and permiting process. I was wondering if anyone had any advice or info for us. The state liquor inspector has been pretty helpful with forms for state and fed licensing but I get the feeling that is the easy part... We all work at a brewery so we have a couple brewmasters and I can build most of our equipment. Any advice would be appreciated.

Still Explosion in Boston (UK)

A still explosion occurred on July 14th in Boston, Lincolnshire country (UK). Ethanol production can be dangerous. Five people are dead. This adds some weight to the prohibition of home distilling.

Still explosions are nothing new. Rare as these sorts of events are (or aren't), it's doesn't take many to raise legitimate concern. If someone has land, a separate structure, minimum distance from adjacent structures, some sort of building code or permitting process would probably work.

The problem is local officials don't have enough knowledge or experience to write or enforce codes. Alternatives?
