TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Home brewers are asking a Kansas Senate committee to endorse a measure easing state restrictions on their craft so they can share their beer, wine and cider with friends and have it judged in contests.

The Senate Federal and State Affairs Committee heard testimony Wednesday in favor of bill permitting home brewers to provide their products to guests or to judges at competitions, if the brewer isn’t paid.

The House overwhelmingly approved the bill last month.

Kansas law permits home brewing if the beer, wine or cider is made only for the brewer or the brewer’s family.

Brew club members had been sharing their products with each other. But in 2012, state regulators told a Kansas City brewing club that the practice isn’t legal.
