Get your Federal Permit? How long did it take?

Recommended Posts

Before you go making stuff you might want to be sure you're cleared with the Dept of Ag depending on your state. They can have a say as well.

Edit:

For PA, Feds was the long, but easy part. We had to do the following:

  • Zoning - conditional use, township approvals
  • Dept of Transportation - Driveway Permit
  • Federal TTB App
  • Building Permits/ Inspections/ Occupancy Approval
  • State LCB
  • PA Dept of Agriculture for the manufacturing side
  • FDA Registration
  • Health Dept for the tasting room, which also required getting the well registered with the state Department of Environmental Protection

The last one was the worst and literally strung us along for 360 days. Long story.

Approved today, 214 days.

Actual review and request for corrections took 11 work days.

On January 1st most applications were reassigned to new reviewers. I got caught up in that. Previous reviewer helped me get to new, but only after I asked.

I was asked for six corrections/additional info. All six were easy...add compass rose to drawing, add size/square footage of operational areas to text description, etc.

Just got my DSP today, filed on May 10th I did the app myself without any attorney help, took 2 months and 15 days I am stoked now waiting for TABC which would not submit my package until they got word that my TTB was complete. Just talked to them and paperwork has been sent off to the state. Getting real now !!!

West Branch Malts, Brunswick OH

46 days.  This is a special case in that we are building a distillery inside a malt house.  Dave Dunbar did all the heavy lifting on this one.  There is a separate thread about the malt house where I will post more information so I don't sidetrack this thread.
