    Microdistillery article in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram this morning

    There was an interesting article in the local online paper this morning, about the rise of "hobbyist distillers":

    Ruh-Rooooh! When the taxman gets a whiff of this untapped revenue he going to try to get a Christmas bonus by taxing untaxed home made shine. It will all work out if the home distiller can claim a home office deduction and hobby expenses.
    Often I am forced to deal with the fact that I prefer bourbon over dealing with facts.

    If your house burns down because the illegal still in your basement starts a fire, will that invalidate your homeowners insurance?

    If my house burns down because of the huge bunker I have, and the investigators note that alcohol fuel may have been involved, will they accuse me of arson and invalidate my insurance?

    I would guess that it would like DUI invalidates your comprehensive car insurance. Dieing of cirrhosis of the liver from drinking invalidates most life insurance policies too.

    Warning: Thread drift.

    If I die from cirrhosis of the liver, it's because I'm an alcoholic, and alcoholism is a disease, probably inherited. Why should that disease invalidate my life insurance? Does death from smoking related illness invalidate life insurance? Don't you understand, I'm a mindless automaton with no free will, at the mercy of forces beyond my control!

    IANAL, but isn't this virtually the same as admitting to the newspaper that you are running a meth lab in your house?

    Lucky me, I've got enough smokeless powder to mask the effects of all of the alcohol.

    Well we don't have basements in Texas so most stills would be in a shed that probably wouldn't be covered anyway.
