I recently closed this question about taking steps to brew beer in a country that has prohibited it.
But I can imagine some potential answers that may be of genuine help, such as alcohol-free brewing, although it seems implied in the question that an alcoholic beverage should be the result, clearly in breach of local laws.
Is this grounds enough to close the question, or should it be opened again?
Also, my understanding is that prohibited means not allowed by law, at least that's the definition I found online. Is there a distinction between prohibited and illegal?
