8 section 70 (1) go out of distilleries in a distillery expires 1 with the deregistration;
2. If she loses the incentive compensation to burn, in the long term;
3. If it - may be used when closing distilleries not more properly in accordance with §§ 71-108 -. This is believed if she continuously has been more than ten years of full operation out of operation.
(2) the distillery does not go out when the distillery owner explains customs in writing in duplicate to the end of the year of operation, in which the lack of operation of the distillery has been found or is suspected, that he perpetuated the distillery company, and when he again operational is the distillery until the end of the following third operational year and again will be in operation in the following year.
(3) that distillery goes out not in the cases of § 64 paragraph 1 sentence 2 and § 175. section 2 precautionary measures in the CAP distilleries of 1 General information section 71 which must lock distilleries set up that all alcohol-containing vapors within the Branntweingewinnungs - and brandy brandy cleaning equipment are condensed and flows the entire firewall in devices particular to its tracking be.

Section 72 (1) in the lock distilleries furnished under section 71 will be taken to protect of the alcohol-containing fumes and the spirits of precautionary measures. Consist, that the calibrators, brandy and Branntweingewinnungs - as well as their individual parts (devices, vessels, pipe; see § 74) according to their nature, installation and connection must meet special requirements (articles 75 to 79, 84-108) and that also from then, where the burning substances are brought to boiling, up to the serving of the official collection of the distillate devices (paragraph 2) closure measures to meet (§§ 80-83a, and some sections 84 to 108). If brandy is obtained otherwise than by output, the Hauptzollamt determine the security measures in consultation with the Federal Office of monopoly.
(2) usually official reservoirs serve to the collection of the distillate. Including the vessels are to be understood, from which the brandy removed also the intermediate collection container (section 186), so the main reservoirs, under certain circumstances (§ 93 par. 3), also the fusel oil - and aldehyde brandy collection container. The main customs office may authorize the use of main indicators (section 106) instead of the main guidance. It may also order that dial gauges special other than main guidance or main gauges for better monitoring of the distilleries still (ancillary gauges; § 107) to be placed.

Article 73 (1) off the shutter custody (section 72, paragraph 1) may be obtained from firewall only with the participation of officials. Devices for the removal of liquor are to attach to the official guidance (§ 72 para 2). They must be apart from the cases in paragraphs 2 and 3, as well as in section 84 (4) - also in other places, if they are necessary for the implementation of the operation or the official supervision.
(2) If spirits on compensation may be made (article 116, paragraph 6, 7), a release valve between the cooler and template can be installed with the permission of the Hauptzollamt for the derivation of the spirits produced on settlement (see § 88 par. 1). The same may happen in cases of section 144, sentence 2.
(3) in order to remove of small samples, tested and certified measuring devices (samples measuring taps) may be switched in the brandy tubes of the Federal monopoly Office show the number of samples. The amount of specimen (specimen number duplicated with the certified amount of each single sample) is at last firewall checks in the quarter or - if just a few spirit samples are - have been consumed during the last firewall taking in the year in a firewall sample book according to prescribed pattern to enter. The sample volume and the average alcohol strength observed in the distillery in hundred parts is to calculate the amount of alcohol; the calculation is to represent in the sample book.
(4) samples, not consumed according to § 132 paragraph 2 No. 2 of the law outside the distillery operationally necessary tests and examinations, be taxed either at the request of the owner of the distillery or fed back to the distillery operating under official supervision, or destroyed.

The Branntweingewinnungs - and brandy cleaning systems consist of equipment, vessels and pipes section 74 (1).
(2) all tubular parts of plants that continue forward only alcohol-rich vapours (spirit pipes) or iterate by Brandy (brandy tubes) are considered tubes. Brandy tubes are also regarded the Lutter back able pipes, the air tubes on devices containing brandy, vessels and tubes, overflow pipes and more pipes. Also the sour mash tubes and pipes leading water or steam belong to the pipes of the plants, where they are officially to secure (§ 95, § 97 para. 2).
(3) vessels are all parts of the plants, which have only the task to include firewall, E.g. day collection container, help collection container, intermediate reservoirs, main reservoirs, fusel oil reservoirs, water treatment vessels, overflow vessels.
(4) under the name of "Devices" are all parts attributable not to the pipes and vessels, E.g. raw and fine burning devices, heater, intercooler (capacitors, Dephlegmatoren), cool, templates, pumps, fusel oil separator, FireWire mixers, samples measuring devices, gauges, combined steam pressure regulator.
2. requirements, generally to provide equipment, vessels and pipes are a) texture section 75 (1) all equipment, vessels and tubes (74) and their connections (with the exception of the seals) must be made of metal. See metal, all fabrics are to understand, which are known in chemistry as metal or alloys of metals.
(2) the outer shells of vehicles, vessels and pipes must be unharmed.
(3) the outer surface of the metal must be visible. It must be treated with dyes or other deck equipment. A painting with wasserhellem paint, oil or similar substances is permitted, insofar as this does not prevent a visit to the metal surface.
(4) glass parts may be used in the walls of metal in that regard, as the contents of equipment, vessels and pipes for reasons of the operation or the official supervision must be made visible. If the risk of violation of the glass parts is great and brandy is behind the glass wall or can be at times, the top Inspector can arrange the installation of special protections, for example in some distance require wire mesh, wire, or hard glass cover or the like. Stand glasses may be not open at the top. For each part of the glass, the distillery owner has to provide a replacement piece.

Section 76 (1) all vessels (section 74 para. 3) and devices (section 74 para 4) the fine stills must be in to visit.
(2) all equipment, containers and pipes must be thoroughly ventilate the operating requirements.
(3) all vessels and of the devices, the fine stills have a device for the detection of the fluid level in the form of stand - or sight glasses.
(4) all vessels must be completely emptied.

§ 77 all tubes (section 74 para 2) must have a clear width corresponding to their purpose.
b) installation section 78 (1) all equipment, vessels and tubes (74) so placed or attached must be in all places where they not are in close connection, just visit. This requirement is to meet, if they go through walls, floors or the like pipes. The opening must be closed with easily removable panels made of glass, wood or metal. If a pipe inside a reservoir, is the fall of the wall with such plates in such a way to conclude that the boards just inside the reservoir can be removed.
(2) as documents for equipment and vessels are profile iron, to use iron feet, or the like in the way that ground of the equipment or vessels can be completely overlooks on its support points.
(3) brandy tubes (section 74 paragraph 2) must have a sufficient gradient.
(4) long brandy tubes are to attach the pipe holder.
(c) section 79 (1) the walls of equipment, vessels and pipes (74) and parts of them are connection with each other as well as with workpieces by brazing, welding, rivets, screw connections (E.g. horizontal screws, use of threaded couplings, conical fittings or Union nuts, screws or flanges with bolts) to connect firmly and tightly. Soldered and welded joints must be smooth and level. The flange rings must be welded or rolled up or sit on to flare, hard angeloeteten or welded edges.
(2) the thickness of seals and packings may not go beyond the necessary operating level. The used material must comply with all requirements, which are to him because of the specific chemical and physical properties of liquids or vapours, and must not operate in particular by heat or brandy.
(3) the combination of metal with glass parts must be designed so that temperature fluctuations, which have a different expansion of materials to the episode, not a stepping out of the content of the equipment, vessels or pipes or broken glass parts to get is, and that the metal parts exert no immediate pressure at a seal manufactured by tightening screws on the glass parts.
3. closure measures a) General General (1) equipment, vessels and pipes (section 74), from which solution of joints or after violation of the metal walls, alcohol or alcoholic vapours could be taken, article 80 are as vulnerable plant parts by caps to ensure (article 82) or locking facilities (section 83).
(2) liaison offices of the other equipment, vessels and pipes as well as the caps are to ensure that a release is possible only after injury of the closures by seal closures (article 81). Seal fasteners are not required at connection points caused by proper welding, brazing or riveting, the latter only by using solid rivets.
(3) vulnerable parts pass through equipment or vessels, which otherwise require any official backup, these devices and vessels must by all sides be completely closed and officially be secured according to paragraph 2.
b) simple closures § 81 seal fasteners plant or parts of caps are secured according to section 80, paragraph 2, must be connected through appropriate work pieces tightly and firmly with each other first. The seal fasteners are then to create these. For this, special on the workpieces in minimum intervals hooks (eyelets holes) must be attached, which allow a fastened to the rest and easy creating of the closures. Eyelets must be welded or hard-soldered.
(c) double locks § 82 caps caps caps (1) are easily removable metal coats, that the parts to be secured at a distance of at least 20 mm are wrapped so that access to the covered parts does not exist. You are backed up by seal closures (article 81).
(2) the components of the caps must be either one above the other to access at least 10 millimeters or with bent edges, over which a sheet metal folding is to push. Other connections are allowed if an access to the protected parts of the system to exclude is also with them. The metal of the caps must be so stable that the caps parts on the joints can be bent not apart.
(3) caps or Cap parts can be used by way of derogation 2 again using soft solder 80 paragraph §. In this case, rings or the like with solid rivets must be attached. The insides of such caps are to delete with a bright, opaque color. Section 75 subsection 2 applies to the outside of the US 3rd Betriebsnotwendige snippets in caps must be protected by a sheet of glass that is permanently attached to the inside.

Section 83 room closures (1) which is lock space including its access points from all sides so to prepare an access is impossible without a solution official closures or easily noticeable damage to the room. To this end, walls, ceiling, and floor of the CAP room must consist of smooth, clear and homogeneous interior surfaces.
(2) from the access points the doors including the holding devices (frame, fishing) must be constructed, attached or secured, that to exclude is a change in their condition or location without leaving visible traces. The other access points (E.g. channels, ventilation openings) are covering it with suitable wire gratings or perforated plates. The fixtures for this purpose as well as door and window hinges, fittings and the like should be attached as possible inside of Cap space and not accessible from the outside. Otherwise have detachable parts of the CAP space delimitation by seal closures. The doors of Cap space for reservoirs are officially secured also by Customs locks. The distillery owner has to keep private with clasp closure spaces.
(3) as far as glass, wire mesh and hole sheet metal fields are used as a sealing room selection, this from the inside of the CAP room in metal angle frame so to install, that they without neither solve nor can move or turn off. The metal angle frame are stuck with each other and with the other lock space boundaries to connect. Fixtures accessible from the outside of the CAP room are to secure seal closures. Mesh and perforated plates must have a distance of at least 1,000 millimeters of the equipment to be protected. A mesh or hole size of 225 square millimeters should not be exceeded, and the thickness of the wire or the distance of the hole should be at least 2 mm.

§ 83a transitional provision a the article 80, paragraph 1 and article 82 in the consist until September 30, 2000 amended landscaped double shutter remains. The main customs office can pick him up on rebuilding the distillery or following a closure inspection (§ 135).
4. Requests that particularly to make connection or closure are to individual devices, vessels and pipes with respect to their characteristics, installation, and deviations from the General requirements a) burning equipment
The raw stills with immediate firing are section 84 (1) of the provision of article 75, paragraph 3, and section 78 para 1 except as far as setting it up requires a direct connection with masonry; In addition, the mash pillars, to the extent that they stand on a brick plinth.
(2) combustion appliances may be surrounded with a coat that is aggravating the escape of heat.
(3) the return of spirits must be placed while the output from the reinforcing columns, intermediate coolers, fusel oil separators or the like in the raw burning devices. Brandy tubes, through which flows back this brandy of reinforcing columns, intermediate coolers or similar with a natural slope in crude furnaces, no shut-off valves or valves may contain for this purpose. Is also in raw stills, where through the filling opening an entrance to the mouth of the return brandy pipe is possible by special devices to ensure that the return can be prevented arbitrarily by brandy in the raw pot still. Is the return spirits from the gain column by means of a pump or the like promoted on the mash column and is a pillar of mash with other institution as capsule floors, then the pump cable or the power supply to the pump must have a secure locking device, which automatically closes when the mash is not in operation.
(4) to check the output residue small coolers (try cooler) may be at the lowest Department of mash pillars, slop drain knob or Stillage collectors attached to the Suppression of vapours. In the drain lines for Lutter residues small tasting cocks should be fitted, the drop by drop in the open position fluid leak out. The alcohol strength of the Lutter residues should be not more than two hundred parts.
(5) the Lutter residues are to infer that a removal of spirits is not to get. Usually, the Lutter behind ear in a public sewer or a pit is to lead. The pits have inside perfectly to visit and ensure either a seepage or strong dilution or contamination of the contents. Their cover is secure. The size of the pits must be adapted to the operating conditions. The Lutter behind ear is to run first as a bag pipe and into the pit just above the ground. The drain for the fluid in the pit is located up under the cover of the pit. Intake pipe and drain hose are firmly embedding into the pit wall. Before the Abfluß-(Überlauf-)Öffnung, a close-meshed wire mesh is inside the pit or the like to install or to ensure that the pit contents can not be removed in any other way. The same is true for other pipes that lead except the Lutter behind ear in the pit.
(6) in the case of the porcelain furnace, the installation of safe control devices that serve the addition of taste substances and detergents, is permitted.
the firewall in templates that are equipped with alcohol spindle and thermometer b) Templates section 85 (1) at any time of the power take-off to determine the thickness and temperature of the distillate is made visible. The templates must figure out up in the upper part of the Bell of jar can be.
(2) templates before dial gauges through raw spirits must be fitted with a filter device for which a replacement piece must exist.
(c) section 86 pumps (1) as brandy within the firewall calibrators and Branntweingewinnungs - vane pumps, diaphragm pumps, are to use lifts or injector. Other pumps are allowed with the permission of the Hauptzollamt.
(2) pumps with grommets are to ensure that the device through which the Pack in the sleeve is pressed, be tightened though without the participation of customs officials, but not relaxed can.
(d) to get spirits mixers section 87 if brandy by constantly varying strengths to the official gauge and thus an gauge display unfavourable for the monopoly concerns, may require the involvement of brandy mixed devices between template and gauge the Federal monopoly Office of the owner of the distillery. The establishment of the mixers arranges the Federal monopoly Office in any case.
(e) section 88 (1) shut-off devices are against removing and easing the moving parts of the shut-off devices. As far as shut-off devices are secure against rotation, they must be also designed that the lock required to prevent the rotation can be applied only if the shut-off devices are in the correct position.
(2) shut-off devices must comply with in their fluid forward of the clear span of the pipes (see paragraph 77).
(3) valves must be set up so that its position can be immediately clear.
(f) congestion indicator § 89 to help determine whether firewall due to an obstruction on the top edge of the air tubes (section 98 subsection 1) resigned, congestion indicator used is brandy fill with, if firewall is leaking from the air tube, and thereby show the recent exit. The air pipes which are attached between the cooler and template, as well as on equipment and vessels must be equipped with congestion indicators. Congestion indicator may be required in other places, if the top officials of the supervisory service considers it necessary. Congestion indicator must reside in simplified form (stasis jar) at the Luftröhrchen, which are used for the ventilation of templates and can the spirits emerge from the templates.
(g) wastewater treatment vessels article 90 if gauge distilleries the filters in the template (§ 85 para 2) not fully able to hold back the impurities of the spirits, the Federal monopoly Office for mechanical cleaning of the distillate may require that sewage vessels in the FireWire cable be reconnected. The vessels are according to arrangement of the Federal monopoly Office set up.
h) day collection container section 91 to determine the daily yield, or the yield of certain of the burning substances, may be switched on with the permission of the Hauptzollamt day collection container in the brandy pipe. The day collection container can record the amount of liquor that can be generated in one day.
(i) help collection container section 92 if the fall towards the drain of the spirits in the main collection container does not exist, may be switched on help collection container in addition to pump into the brandy pipe. The help collection container can record the amount of liquor that can be generated in one day.
k) intermediate reservoirs § 93 (1) of raw spirits is initially started in interim guidance in distilleries in which the fine distillate according to section 198, paragraph 1, and from there into the burning device for the purification, if necessary, with a pump, end-use. Also fine brandy can be recorded in the intermediate collection container, once again fine to burn. Several vessels can exist for the different types of spirits, or it can consist of several departments a vessel.
(2) instead of intermediate reservoirs of raw spirits can be redirected directly in the fine still.
(3) the intermediate collection container for the raw brandy must accommodate at least the liquor quantity required for the next charge of fine burning devices. Other intermediate reservoirs must be so great that a trap is not to get. In fine burning distilleries also raw spirits or pre-or postprocessing of fine brandy is removed, so the intermediate collection container are considered for raw spirits official collection container (§ 72 para 2); their size is determined according to § 94 paragraph 2 l) main reservoirs section 94 (1) If several main reservoirs (§ 72 para 2) are set up, is the connection of between the vessels and the supply of distillate to set up so that only filled a container is and the subsequent firewall can then freely run in a receptacle.
(2) the tonnage of the main reservoirs of a distillery must be altogether so large that the amount of spirits can be accommodated, can be created in a month at full utilization of the existing facility. The main customs office can allow a smaller tonnage with the consent of the Federal monopoly Office, if this not dispatch officials unduly take advantage of and for firewall, which is included on the Federal monopoly administration, the cargo space can be exploited yet rewarding.
(m) sour mash tubes section 95 (1) are the burning substances (mash or other fermented substances such as spices, liquor, wine) to feed the raw burning through a tube of sour mash, flying (stanchion) almost to the bottom of the firing device or its relevant part or just before entering the furnace has a non-return valve. Mash columns, it is sufficient if the pipe before it enters the furnace is knie - or baggy. The parts of the sour mash tubes that are listed or provided with non-return valve as diving, knee or bag pipe, must be officially secured against changes.
(2) in the case of the sour mash tubes at preheaters in which alcohol-containing vapors develop from the mash one of the measures referred to in paragraph 1 is to apply.
(n) brandy tubes § 96 vessels leading brandy tubes (section 74 paragraph 2) must top in wall of the vessels end. The brandy pipe through the firewall on the porcelain furnace is spent must be designed or equipped to that alcohol-containing vapors from the porcelain furnace can not escape through this pipe.
o)
Water and steam pipes article 97 (1) tubes through which water or steam in some brandy or alcohol-containing vapours of the Branntweingewinnungs - or brandy cleaning equipment passes into, must with devices be fitted, which automatically prevent a derivation of spirits and alcohol-containing vapors through these pipes. The steam pipes, which immediately go into parts of raw burning devices, which Flash substances are excluded.
(2) the devices (paragraph 1) and their joints, as well as the pipes of the devices to its confluence with the tubes are in the same way to secure such as the part of the plant in the water or steam pipe flows. Also, the pipes to devices including the because the fixtures by simple closure are so secure, that is no longer to get, that affected the effectiveness of the devices.
p) ventilation devices article 98 (1) the ventilation device on devices that include firewall, on vessels and brandy tubes consists usually of a vertically-mounted air duct. On his open mouth, a hood is to attach, which completes down through a feature plate with air openings not exceeding 1.5 mm wide. The hood itself may contain no air holes. The air ducts must be so high that a leakage of brandy from is not to worry about the mouth with a good management. This condition is air pipes to radiators satisfied if a highest hourly brandy production up to 30 litres the muzzle of the air pipe towers above the liquor spout from the cooler to at least 300 mm for larger hourly brandy production but to at least 750 millimetres.
(2) if there is at least a rule moderate air tube (1) in the plants, ventilation can be brought about by devices that contain spirits, of vessels and the firewall pipes by pipe connections with this air pipe (air connection pipes).
(3) devices that contain liquor, and vessels also air valves can be used for ventilation, if it does not allow leakage of brandy, from the outside in their effectiveness arbitrarily can be affected.
(4) also air valves can be used to the ventilation devices and tubes that contain alcohol-containing vapors, if they can be made arbitrarily opened from the outside. Otherwise, they are in a tube that is to connect with spirit, pipe leading to the cooler to incorporate such that the acting out fumes escape after the cooler out.
(q) overflow devices if it is possible that brandy comes out before its official entry due to overfilling equipment or vessels from the custody of the closure, are § 99 measures to meet that flow running over brandy in the official entry points. Such measures in each case are not possible or not appropriate, monitoring congestion indicator (section 89) is sufficient. Under certain circumstances, running about spirits in special vessels (overflow vessels) can be directed. Overflow pipes are not higher permitted as the lowest of the upper edges of the air tubes, which are connected with them.
(r) exceed tubes section 100 if devices serve to inhibit the flow of distillate, or even to stop (E.g. private dial gauges, filter, shut-off devices), so are more tubes which in a stasis of firewall bypassing the obstacle will be forwarded to install. More pipes are not higher permitted as the lowest of the upper edges of the air tubes, which are connected with them. The more pipe to the overflow tank (§ 99) can be made in special cases.
5. dial gauges a) official gauges of § 101 official gauges are the alcohol meter approved by the Federal monopoly administration, alcohol meter and sampler.

Section 102 (1) the Federal monopoly Office publishes a statement about what kinds of dial gauges at all for the measurement of brandy distilleries (rules of dial gauge) are allowed in the. In the statement, approved gauges into their individual parts and facilities described and taken instructions pertaining to their shipment, installation, treatment and testing.
(2) the Federal monopoly Office determines what type of gauge to use and what specific facilities to be fixed according to the nature of the operation about in each case according to the distillery owner and the Hauptzollamt on the operating conditions of the distillery and own experience. The same thing has to happen if the operating conditions under which a dial gauge has been determined, a distillery, change.

Section 103 (1) it only gauges may be used that have been tested by the Federal monopoly office prior to their installation. The exam generally takes place prior to dispatch to the distillery. The assessment, a legalization Bill is made twice. A copy of the is to the document folder for the distillery at the Customs Office, to bring the others to the document folder at the distillery.
(2) the Federal monopoly Office determines which parts of the gauges in particular are to test and certify.
(3) be certified parts repaired or rebuilt, are to review it before inserting it into the meter and to authenticate. The same is true for parts, intended as a replacement for certified parts.
(4) indicators, which should be placed in a different distillery or due to violation of the closure were available to unauthorized, are to be checked again before use. The same is true for dial gauges, which were kept out of a distillery, before it should be raised again in a distillery. The Federal monopoly Office which in such cases is to give knowledge in a timely manner, can demand that the dial gauge will be sent to the manufacturer prior to use, and undertake the review with her. May admit also, if the official seals were uninjured, to accept such gauges before renewed examination in operating.

§ 104 of the distillery owner has to get the gauge at his own expense to form State. He has to get closer to spare parts by the Federal Office of monopoly and to keep.

The dial gauge as well as certified patched or certified parts are section 105 to send the distillery owners under official wraps. The owner of the distillery has to display the reception to the top inspectors and get the lock was not hurt.
1. main gauges section 106 main gauges are official gauges, which are used for the collection of the distillate (sections 101 to 105).
2. ancillary gauges section 107 (1) auxiliary gauges are special official gauges, which can be used according to § 72 para 2 on arrangement of the Hauptzollamt for the better supervision of the distilleries.
(2) the display of the secondary dial gauges can be compared with the quantities of alcohol removed.
(3) in accordance with the Federal monopoly Office, main dial gauges can be used in special cases, at the same time as supporting dial gauges.
(b) private dial gauges section 108 in the Branntweingewinnungs - and brandy cleaning equipment may be turned on private dial gauges with approval of the Hauptzollamt. You need to ensure a free flow of distillate and allow no secretion of samples.
6 exceptions article 109 the main customs office is authorized, a) in some cases more precautionary measures to order if the provisions appear insufficient in the §§ 71-108 to secure the monopoly concerns.
(b) in consultation with the Federal monopoly Office in individual cases, to admit that the wholly or partially not complying in the §§ 71-108. This special supervisory measures can be arranged.

Section 110 if book Branntweingewinnungs - brandy cleaning installations or parts of them, for the exceptions to section 109. b were approved, be replaced by others, have the new equipment or parts to comply with the requirements of §§ 71-108. The main customs office in consultation with the Federal monopoly Office also may allow exceptions in special cases.
7 reimbursement of costs for security measures a) General § 111 (dropped out) b) procedure § 112 (dropped out) section 113 (dropped out) section 3 termination of the distilleries 1 concept and types of § 114 (1) severance in the severance distilleries closures without the volume of spirits to be produced officially estimate. This is done in such a way that the amount of alcohol from the quantity of the raw materials intended for the production of spirits, and the true rate of yield (§ 120) will be charged. (From the amount of alcohol thereafter obtained a is either) the liquor tax pursuant to § 170a para 1 in advance binding set (severance pay on a certain amount of duty) or b) set the minimum quantity of alcohol, which is the official clearance, according to article 132, paragraph 1 (settlement on the minimum amount).
(2) in the case of the severance payment to a certain amount of duty of created spirits without official clearance is immediately free circulation; the severance payment to the minimum amount of produced spirits of official controls is governed by pursuant to article 132, paragraph 2.

Section 115 (1) on a certain amount of duty (section 114, paragraph 1 section a) are, as far as referred to in paragraph 2, unless otherwise is arranged to resign the distilleries referred to in section 116.
(2) the severance payment to the minimum amount (section 114 para 1 b) can be arranged with a) of the main customs office in severance distilleries, if the volume of the monopoly appears at risk, b) of the main customs office in cases of § 118, c)
the top inspectors in cases of § 153 para 1 2 admissibility of the compensation section 116 (1) Obstbrennereien, which are operational, but not lock securely, are on request within the border number (§ 119) with a production limit of fifty litres of ethyl alcohol in the year the compensation approved. The main customs office decides on the application.
(2) the admission to the compensation is excluded, if distillery facilities include a continuous furnace, a furnace with steam introduction, a burn bubble with more than one hundred and fifty litres of space content or multiple burning devices, especially a special fine burning device. The introduction of steam from the water bath of the furnace in the spout of the pot still is allowed.
(3) in Obstbrennereien are admitted to the severance pay, only fruit fabrics may be processed, the owner of the distillery has won.
4 distilleries of all classes that are approved with the production limit of three hectolitres of alcohol to the severance pay, keeping this severance payment. You may process other than self-derived substances.
(5) were found Obstbrennereien can be transmitted on request in special cases within the upper financial district on a different plot. The Federal Minister of finance or the body appointed by decides on the application.
(6) the main customs office may allow agricultural distilleries of closure for the intermediate operation (§ 5) to a production quantity of fifty litres of ethyl alcohol in the year to the settlement, if special collection container or main gauges should be placed to capture the spirits produced from fruits substances under lock and key. The quantities of alcohol produced under compensation be applied on the burning right or alcohol quantity considered to be manufactured within the right of burning and on a roughly stated production ceiling.
(7) the main customs office may authorise owners of closing distilleries on request that fabric owner burn in the distillery under their own registration operation under compensation.
3. loss of severance pay section 116a (1) lose the incentive to burn under severance, 1 distilleries that exceed their production limit.
2. distilleries that use devices of the kind referred to in article 116, paragraph 2, sentence 1 for the first time or replace such equipment;

(2) the rate of yield is the amount of alcohol that is mealy substance from a 100 kilograms and not mealy substance extracted from a hectolitre of substances. He is set to liters and one-tenth liter; Fractions of a tenth liters are if they exceed a half a tenth or more, for a full one-tenth liter expected to omit lower fractions but.
b) regular yield rates are § 121 (1) with regard to processing of fresh potatoes and crushed grain to assume following regular yields: 7 litres of alcohol from 100 kilograms of fresh potatoes and 26 litres of alcohol from 100 kg crushed grain.
(2) for the calculation of the yield according to the regular yield rates, the malt for the saccharification of mash for fresh potatoes remains up to 5 per cent, with crushed grain up to 15 per cent of the weight of the raw materials out of consideration. The addition of malt exceeds these limits, the additional quantity for calculation of yield as a crushed grain is to be so; Fractions of a kilogram are not considered here.

Article 122 
Handling of non-farinaceous substances following regular yields apply a hectolitre material:-cherries 5.0 l A, itself gained sour 3.5 l A, - plums 4.6 l A, – Mirabelle 4.8 l A, plums and Greengages 3.9 l A, - sloe 2.0 l A, - other stone fruit 3.5 l A, Pomaceous fruit, also windfall, as well as core cider 3.6 l A, - Kernobsttrester 1.5 l A, grapes and-beeren 5.0 l A , - other soft fruit 2.0 l A, - grape wine 6.0 l A, wine and must 4.0 l A, - fruit wine yeast 2.5 l A, - grape wine pomace from German wine regions 2.0 l A, - grape wine lees (wine yeast) from German wine regions 6.0 l A, - Topinamburs (Ross potatoes) 4.6 l A, gentian - and other roots 2.0 l A, - beer up to 13 degrees Plato 4.0 l A, - beer with more than 13 degrees Plato 5.0 l A , - Beer residues 2.0 l A.

(3) the yields for a genus of fabric with several distilleries are particularly determined and is doing an essentially matching result has been made, so the rate of yield for other distilleries can be set according to this result, which process the same fabric genus under similar operating conditions. Without special investigation, the yield rate can also be set, if otherwise about the yield sufficient experience is available.
(4) is once again the firewall (raw liquor, Lutter) obtained with the first output (raw brand) in the distillery or aborted several times, so the rate of yield calculated for the raw brand can be shortened for the loss caused by the repeated output (fine distillate), up to three hundred parts, but at least to a tenth of a liter. The reduction amount is to determine through assessment by test firing (article 129) or experiences.
(5) section 125a (dropped out) § 126 is the fixed rate of the yield to inform the owner of the distillery. In the cases of § 125 ABS. 3, the communication can be replaced by public notice.
