As of April 19, 1999, the Board opted not to sell grain/ethyl (190 proof) alcohol through its Wine & Spirits Shops to the general public. This was done in an effort to prevent alcohol abuse, particularly among college students and other young people.
The Board will sell grain alcohol to non-licensees that intend to use the alcohol for a non-consumable use. However, individuals who wish to acquire grain alcohol must fill out “Application for Ethyl (Grain) Alcohol Purchase” (form PLCB-2196) and swear or affirm under penalty of law that the alcohol purchased will not be consumed. The applications will then be processed by the Bureau of Licensing who will make a decision regarding your application and provide you with any additional information you may need. The necessary form is available by calling the Board’s Licensing Information Center at (717) 783-8250.
