If you live in the United States, your friend is right. You can't just brew as much beer as you like. According to the law you can brew up to 200 gallons of beer a year (which is 40 cases). But that's a lot of beer so it shouldn't restrict you too much.

How do you clean your home brew equipment? I know that if you dont do it properly it can infect the next batch of beer.

I like the answer that the Brew Beer and Drink It site gives about cleaning your home brewing equipment. It seems like it's really important to get it right or you can mess up all of your beer.

My friend opened her bottled of homebrewed beer and it shot out the bottle like champagne, soaking us all. Why did that happen?

There is always a bit up of pressure as this allows the carbonation to take place. If you put bottles of beer in the fridge after bottling, it helps to relieve some of the pressure. But the real answer lies in the speed that you open the bottles. Do it really really slowly to allow the pressure to slowly release itself.

Do it too fast and you will shoot beer all over the place.

Is it legal to brew your own alcohol? I am thinking of starting homebrewing but dont want to break the law.

It is actually totally legal to brew your own alcohol. What you're not allowed to do is distill it afterwards.

Can I use distilled water to brew beer? I dont like drinking the water where I live so I usually use distilled water but was not sure if it would work with beer.

I wouldn't brew beer with distilled water. It doesn't contain all the minerals you need for a good taste in beer. You could always use bottled water.

With homebrewing, what is the difference between extract and all-grain brewing?

Brewing your own beer requires you to boil and make beer with a wort extract. Extract brewing is where you use reconstituted wort to make your own beer. This method is much quicker and requires a lot less equipment than all grain brewing, which involves creating your own wort from the beginning.

It's a great thing to make your own beer from scratch but it's a much more complicated and involved process than brewing your own from wort that you purchases.
