      ====================================

      Hi, Chris.How to obtain an alcohol fuel permit in the US. Here are
      some basic guidelines to get you started.


      For fed. rules and regs. Go to http://ecfr.gpoaccess.gov


      In the browse box, select "title 27"

      Where it says "browse parts" click on the numbers "1-199"

      Scroll down to "part 19" (Distilled spirits plant)and click on the
      numbers "19.1 to 19.1010"

      You are only interested in "subpart Y" (Distilled spirits for fuel)

      If you just want to produce fuel for personal use, and to be used on
      your own property, you aren't subject to bonds, taxes, and
      denaturing your product unless it is removed from the premises.

      If this is what you want, then you will want to choose the "small
      plant" ( less than 10,000 proof-gallons per year)A proof-gallon is a
      US gallon times proof divided by 100.



      For an on line permit application – click on the following link…
