REVISED LIST OF ADJUNCTS REPORTED
TO BE EMPLOYED IN BREWING
Brewers and others concerned:
Purpose. The purpose of this circular is to advise you that the document
"Adjuncts Reported to be Employed in Brewing" dated September 1, 1970, and
referred to in Industry Circular No. 70-28, has again been revised by the
brewing industry. The newly revised document dated November 1, 1970, has
been furnished to the Director, Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Division. It
is understood that copies of the revised document have been supplied by the
industry to all brewers.
Use of adjuncts contained in the revised Adjunct Report. In order to continue
or begin the use of an adjunct listed in the Report the brewer will be
expected to file a statement with his Assistant Regional Commissioner (Alcohol,
Tobacco and Firearms) to become part of his notice, Form 27-C, to the effect
that he has received a copy of the revised Adjunct Report and proposes to use
(without specificity) one or more of the adjuncts listed therein. It will be
the responsibility of the brewer to establish the propriety of his use of an
adjunct by the maintenance of commercial records detailing the receipt and
Adjuncts not listed in the revised Adjunct Report. Adjuncts listed in the
revised Adjunct Report are currently recognized as "wholesome products suitable
for human food consumption" and suitable for use in beer and cereal beverages.
Any brewer desiring to use an adjunct not included in the Report should, prior
to commencing its use, submit complete documentation addressed to the Director
concerning the appropriateness of the adjunct for the use proposed. If it is
found that the proposed material is suitable for use in beer and cereal
beverages, the brewer will be so notified.
Amendments. As additional adjuncts are recognized as being suitable for
use in beer and cereal beverages, amendments of the document, "Adjuncts
Reported to be Employed in Brewing," will be issued for the information and
guidance of brewers, by means of dated page inserts identifying the additional
item or items. However, it will not be necessary to again file the statement
referred to in the second paragraph above as to adjuncts identified on such
Requests for copies of report. All requests for copies of the revised
Adjunct Report should be sent to the United States Brewers Association
Inc., 1750 K Street, N. W., Washington, D. C. 20006.
Inquiries. Inquiries regarding this circular should refer to its number
and be addressed to the Director, Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Division,
Internal Revenue Service, Washington, D. C. 20224.
