    I've been thinking about it. Did you dilute your honey prior to fermentation?

    YEs of cource. we distil it every year if we have good harvest. keep in mind that this valuable drink and costs expensive too. because you need high Quality multiflower Honey(Oregano, clvoer, Cotton thistle.hawthorn. etc. but Fermentation and distiling seems to be very hard because. requires a lot of attention.

    Well, perhaps technically, but prosecution AFAIK is reserved for the *sale* of unlicensed distilled beverages. Uncle Sam's interest is financial.

    Congratulations ... you have just confessed to not knowing your geography. Has it occurred to you that Eliahu might live in the country of Georgia, where United States law has absolutely no reign?

    Even if you do not sell it, distilling your own alcohol is illegal under federal law (without having a distillery license of course). However, if you don't live in the United States I find it hard to believe that Eliahu could be prosecuted

    You can make a certain amount for personal use legally.

    Not true in the USA, not even in North Carolina.

    You can make a certain amount of beer and wine legally, but home-brewed distilled spirits (unless denatured*) are illegal without a Federal license.

    See: http://www.ttb.gov/spirits/faq.shtml



    * denatured means deliberately contaminated as to be unusable for human consumption.
