The customer must start the fermentation process at the facility and carry out certain steps to produce the beer or wine, including the following:
- the customer must add the yeast or enzymes needed to begin the fermentation process to the beer wort, wine juice, wine juice concentrate or other raw material of beer or wine; and
- the customer must place his or her beer or wine in containers;
- the customer must label, cork, cap, shrink wrap or package his or her beer or wine;
- the customer must remove his or her beer or wine from the licensed premises immediately after it has been placed in containers.
A customer may designate a person, other than the licensee or the licensee’s employee or agent, to complete these steps at the premises on the customer’s behalf.
