Shipped my entries off today. The packaging and shipping section in Gordon's book were timely. Built a box in a box out of styrofoam, bubble wrapped the bottles, lined it with a garbage bag, and left it open in the fridge last night. Put th etop on and sealed it up today. The beers we have going on will benefit from this.
We have been doing 2 day air for the last 2 final rounds. Got that advice from a friend in the club. I don't want my beers going across the desert Southwest in June, in a truck.
