SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A bill to let Utahns have home breweries without a license has been amended to limit the amount of the beverages allowed to be transported from home.

The amendment to House Bill 51, made on Monday by Sen. John Valentine, R-Orem, would limit the amount allowed to be transported out of the home for personal or family use to one liter of wine or 72 ounces of beer per person age 21 or over.

The amendment also would limit the amount that may be transported from home for judging on taste and quality to one ounce of wine or two ounces of beer per judge.

The bill's sponsor, Rep. Christine Johnson, D-Salt Lake City, approved of the changes.

The amended bill was approved by the Senate 25-2 and will be sent back to the House floor for approval.
