Penalty: Fifty pounds.

Deficiency in stamps.

39.  Whenever in relation to any brewery it appears that the stamps purchased during any month, together with the stamps on hand at the commencement of the month, after deducting the stamps, if any, on hand at the close, are less than ought to have been used on the beer removed from the brewery during the month, the brewer shall forthwith pay the difference to the Collector.

Deficiency in duty.

40.  Whenever, in relation to any brewery, on taking stock of beer and materials by an officer, and comparing the quantities of materials used and beer on hand with the quantity of beer on which duty has been paid, it appears that duty has not been paid on the full quantity of beer which ought to have paid duty, the brewer shall forthwith pay the difference to the Collector.

Refund for bad beer.

41.  Whenever beer upon which the duty has been paid becomes unfit for human use as a beverage before more than one-eighth of its quantity has been withdrawn from the vessel in which it is contained, a refund of the duty shall be made in the manner prescribed if it is returned in the original vessel to the brewery within ninety days after removal, or if it is destroyed by permission of the Collector.
