The intent of the references I gave were mainly to show that Federal most likely considers apple and honey based alcohols (fermented not distilled of course) to be part of the Wine Category...
So far I have found no other references that may refer to Apple Cider or Mead.

I think you are correct, the rules mentioned in this reference seem to be regulations for commercial brewers.

    Are we sure this is not a law for commercial brewers.  It doesn't make sense that these laws would apply to homebrewing.  One should be able to make their wines to taste.  Isn't that the idea of brewing your own?
