PM sent with tracking number. Enjoy unpacking it! Bwahahah

Jim, you evil, evil man. ;D I've seen some wicked packing jobs before when unpacking for comps, but this one takes the cake! I had to use a exacto blade to get it all unpacked. Pics for everyone's enjoyment:

I tried to pull on the little white bag tuft, it just resulted in packing peanuts everywhere. I ended up having to cut open the bag while it stayed in the peanuts:


And then they were sealed in a Food Saver bag, 2 bottles per pouch:


Lololol - this one had bonus packing peanuts in it  ;D I was giggling the whole time I opened these:


And finally, inside the Food Saver bags was bubble wrap:


Success!


I had probably way to much fun opening this package. I'm quite looking forward to these beers. Myles is eye-ballin' the Espresso Stout already.  8)

I dropped off a package for Wort-HOG this morning.  I revamped my approach to homebrewing after the AHA Conference (going for lighter and more balanced flavor across hops/grain/yeast) and I'm hoping to get some feedback. 

I'm happy to reship in smaller containers if anything is broken.  For the curious:

UPS said they no longer mark packages as "Fragile" as it's all automated via barcodes and that it's gotta survive 5 foot drops across conveyor belts.  I have each bomber wrapped in plastic, then 0.5 to 1.5 inch of foam, and then two layers of cardboard.  It's a tight fit.  Five feet is a large drop though.

Chicago to Baton Rouge is 2 days via FedEx Ground (make sure you don't send it as a residential address), so if you ship Monday, I'll get it next Wednesday, and can stick them in the fridge to drink when I get back from the Dixie Cup.  :)

I'll get on this tonight, if the kids go to bed on time.

I even snatched up a good box from Binny's last week.
