General Homebrew Discussion / Re: NOT the way to start a brew day

Bummer. I once knocked over my mash tun as I was sparging. Grains and water every where on the garage floor. I only collected about half of what I needed. Painful.

Nothing against IPA's. But, can you taste anything after flight no. 2?

Jim I'd love to do it, but shipping can be difficult.  I would love to know a shipper through whom I could ship reliably for these purposes.  Last year's NHC entries for me was an all day runaround trying to locate a shipper willing to do this.  I finally found one, but that place was a member of some kind of wine club, so they were tied to a special group or had some kind of special rights with a national operator.  Now that place is closed down, so I don't know where to ship from (I am in the far western suburbs of Chicago).  I don't want to lie about contents, like has been suggested by others regarding NHC entries in the past.
If you ship FedEx and have it picked up from your home with the label already on it you never get asked about contents.  I've heard shipping may actually be illegal in some states though and I'm not sure where to find a definitive answer? 
This does sound like fun, unfortunately I'll have to pass this go around.  New baby didn't leave time for brewing the last few months and my kegs are all running dry on me.  I will have to get back instock.

Both UPS and Fedex have it on their website that you can print a label and pay on the website. Then drop it off at their store, or have it picked up. I have never been asked the contents.

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! It looks like she loves you enough to bless you greatly and to keep her word and stay within the budget. I am so happy for the both of you.

I am sure what Mr. Kiss wrote is true. I just wonder if we got all of it. Especially with everybody coming to the same conclusion. That is when I get suspicious. We may never know.

I wonder if we got the whole story.

I am wondering if the author actually believes what she wrote in this article. My guess is she wrote it to get clicks and a reaction. Mission accomplished.

I am reminded of a line from Jethro Tull's "Thick As a Brick":

"I judge you all and make damn sure no one judges me."

If the doctor's orders are to "abstain from alcohol". Then, that's what you need to do.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Purchasing Crushed Grains vs. Milling

I also have a barley crusher and i don't mind hand cranking. I consider it a bonus work out. Usually, I mill the night before brewing.
