Swap-toberfest '15
« on: September 21, 2015, 01:01:19 AM »
I'm moving the thread to general, due to folks not finding it on events...

https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/forum/index.php?topic=23735.0

Here is the sign up list so far.
Klickitat Jim
Pete b
Morticaixavier
Toby
Jeffy
Mchrispin
Blatz
69franx
WortH.O.G.
AmandaK
Heavydeadlifts

Reminder, or for folks that haven't seen this before, if you join in you are committing to ship 3 bombers or 6 12s to the person you are assigned. Done by random draw. Its not a pairing because that requires an equal number of participants. You'll ship to one person and receive from another. I suggest at least one homebrew and suggest that local offerings that arent available where your swapper lives are nice too.

If you want in, send me a PM with your user name, real name, and shipping address

The sign up ends this week 9/25. The next day I will post the drawing and PM the shipping info.
Please ship so they get beer during October

Disclaimer: this is not an AHA thing. We are just helping eachother brew better beer. Also, I am not policing this and sending reminders for shipping... if November comes and you haven't gotten a package, feel free to PM your shipper and get it figured out. Keep in mind that we had 100% last time. No deadbeats! Woo hoo! Hint, reduce impatience and nervousness by PMing your plan and a tracking number to your recipient.

What makes this really fun is the polite but helpful banter in the forum on this thread about the beer...


If you want in, shoot me a PM with your info.

I think to be safe Jim should make me Amanda's receiving person.
Don't let the bastards cheer you up.

Update:

I restarted the thread here on general brewing, and locked the one on events, to eliminate confusion and split threads.

Its the 25th! When I get up in the morning I'll take any who have sent me a PM with forum name, real name, and shipping address (no PO Boxes)

I'll post that sign ups are closed

Then I will do the drawing and post that. Sometime tomorrow, all participants will get a PM from me with your recipient's info and some final instructions.

Last chance to join up guys, no more reminders.

A couple things while we wait for the clock to clock down

No rush on shipping, so long as they receive while it is still Oktober...

Someone asked me what to do if you're going to be gone for certain days and dont want a box of beer sitting in the weather. Easy fix. When I release the lineup, I encourage you to contact your recipient with an estimate of when you will ship. Waiting sucks, but waiting with info is much better. This is when you would let your shipper know if you are going to be out of town a certain time frame. You might also ask them if there is a local offering they've been wanting to try out. You might check to see if they are allergic to shelfish before shipping your Clam-bucha. Stuff like that. Then, if you want to be especially awesome, you will send them their tracking info.

That would work! All just suggestions, no hard rules. Keeps it kinda equal. You can send a case, but only expect 3 bombers or 6 12s
