Hi, I'm new to all this and was wondering if there are any interesting laws about brewing alchahol I should know about, espescially age restrictions. Thanks.

First of all, you need to be old enough to drink, or it would be illegal for you to own your fruits of your labor. There are specifics on the amount of beverages you can make per a year. A lot of factors go into this(number of people in your house of legal drinking age, etc.) Next, you can only use it for consumption, no selling of any sort without licenses, taxes, etc. Distilling is illegal for consumption I believe, but you can get the equipment for distilling for fuel. Yes I'm sure the Feds will check into this one.

Check out the US Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) page below, click on the production and removal of beer links.
