Alcohol a legal issue??

Russ Fairfield
>Not being an alarmist, but....
Has anyone taken the time to look into the legal and insurance issues around keeping a large inventory of alcohol in their home or shop??

There are Fedral regulations, and maybe State as well, that require registration of any large quantity of alcohol of any kind. Alcohols are on the substance list for making explosives at the ATF, and drugs at the DEA. If you have purchased it by the drum, they already know about it.

The environmental and insurance issues would be the same as if you had a 55-gallon drum of gasoline stored in your garage. The environmental folks are worried about a spill, and your insurance company is looking for a reason to not pay a fire damage claim.
