Title: Swap-toberfest '15
Post by: klickitat jim on July 10, 2015, 05:15:46 AM
Just a heads up so folks can brew if need be. No need to do anything or reply just yet.

This go around I'm suggesting two homebrews and one favorite local offering. One bomber each, or two 12s.

In September I will start gathering info from the interested. We'll cutoff October 1st and start shipping.

More info to come, for now if you are interested, start brewing.

By the way, its ok to chime in if you are interested, but I won't start gathering info till September.

Most likely my beers will be a Helles, a Brett Saison, and a local World Cup winning beer.

Can those of us without local offerings throw in a another homebrew instead?

Edit: Actually, by October they'll be the same beer either way. ;)

I should be in as well, although not completely sure what I'll have at that point.  I've already thrown my current brew calendar out the window due to some interesting comps that came up.

Lets get started on the list.

If you are willing and able to commit to sharing beers (a mix of homebrew and local offerings suggested, 3 bombers or 6 12s) then say so with a post. Also, if you commit, I need a private message with the following info:

Forum name
Real name
Shipping address

You have through September 25th to sign up. I will shut it off then, and do the name drawing. You will get a PM back from me on the 26th or 27th with the info of who to ship your beer to, and the user name of who is shipping to you. Im not going to be monitoring shipping, but its Swaptoberfest, so get it shipped in time to arrive in October.

As to posting reviews, lets all feel free to banter away about the beers but judging and scoring is not necessary.

Have fun!

Anyone who gets you is going to expect Heady :)

I may be interested as well.  I should know better by September 25th.  We do the same thing on the Brewing Network each year (secret santa), and I've had some great homebrew and commercial beers.

Only request is that it is limited to the continental US...shipping overseas is way too expensive.

Well I'll tell you what if I pull you I might expect some poverty lane to compare with your ciders. Actually sitting here at 7 barrels having a glass right now.

Last time I did it by email. A couple ended up in my junk folder and almost got lost. PM seems to be better. Plus I post on here that I have it...

So if anyone thinks I have them on the list, I don't unless I reply that I have it.

Update:

Ten of us so far! Two weeks left to get in on it. A few days before the cuttoff I will post all the user names who have committed. Make sure your names is on that list if you want in. There's some great brewers, and great tasters so far, so its a great opportunity to have some fun, share a little, get some great feedback, and build a deeper connection in our little online brewing community.

Post by: 69franx on September 12, 2015, 04:33:10 AM
And then there's me: not specifically a great brewer and definitely not a great taster.  I would just like the chance for the aforementioned great feedback and to taste some great home brew. Ps, Jim the black raspberry saison likely will not be in bottles yet, just a little fyi

Is there any specific deadline? I have a couple of beers planned that probably won't be ready until mid-October if I bottle-condition them.

Side note - I almost missed this thread completely. I don't visit the Events subforum all too often.

Hmmm, I just look at all new topics, new posts, but I use tapatalk so its easy peasy.

I'd have to scroll back but basically sign up deadline is 9/25  Then the idea is to be getting beer in hand while its still October. Otherwise its Swapvemberfest and thats just wrong LOL.
