My local parts store (UPS ship location) stepped up and covered the cost of second shipment without me even asking them to. Small towns suck usually but in situations like this they shine.

I've been wrong on that one apparently. I always thought it was German for From Mars

In this package each bottle is wrapped in bubble wrap and then the box is over stuffed with extra bubble wrap. It should sustain a drop of fifty feet this time.

A lager style should be classified by one thing: brewed with lager yeast.
Unless the beer is in texas. If its over 5% and in texas, its an ale.

That law was changed a year or 2 ago.
Disregard. And good for Texas!

Fortunately it looks like I'll make it. Good thing I have spares. I'm looking at this as a hurdle rather than a roadblock. Hoping the results match my optimism

Decided to track my NHC entry. Due to deliver tomorrow but there was a note that it was damaged in Portland and contents discarded. How frustrating. Thankfully if I ship by thursday it should still get there in time. I think I won't write fragile on it this time. The way I packed it someone would have had to throw it overhand at a concrete wall to break it. Probably exactly what happened.  Aaaargh!

I suggest you guys dream huge and enjoy the obsession. Meanwhile, before I spent any money on the dream, I'd suggest you develop several brews that not only you like, but friends like, and competitions like enough to give you medals.  Actually,  medals aren't vital, but I wouldn't consider going pro on my own unless I had a dozen beers that consistently scored over 40 by certified or higher ranked judges. Multiple score sheets, not just a couple from some guy I know. Then I would build a thorough business plan and have a trusted business leader friend give their honest opinion.

Its an interesting idea I suppose. We are clearly not your market base though. Your success would be dependent on how well you could reach that sliver of the homebrew community that brews nothing but kits. You would basically be an internet supply store specializing in ingredients. You'd need a flashy easy to use website, and a huge inventory with every ingredient imaginable. Maybe charge $ X for people to post their recipes, with a tiny store credit royalty for each sale. The website should show how many kits have sold for each, and have a feedback section. If you could get it to reach critical mass it might be fun and take off. Or you might just lose your butt.

Ruby Ridge Homebrew Contest? Has a nice ring to it, but...

I may have to make a shirt that says that!
Yes! With a picture of Ben Franklin with a handlebar mustache and holding a pint

I dug up a picture of my last Irish Red, which I made with 100% Best Malz Red X at an OG about 1.050. I pitched Wyeaat 1084 for the Irishness
