Probably I'll have a decent replacement package ready to go by late May. If you are cool with that. Challenge beer, IPA, APA, my NHC 2nd round Stout,  maybe a sour beer.

I can wait.  Not huge on sours, but if you ship it I will drink it and report back.

Well, Carquest (my UPS shipper) called. UPS admitted they lost Joe's package. Now they are beginning the battle to get me reimbursement. Not holding my breath. Meanwhile, sorry Joe. But your swap package will be way late. Unless I simply bow out and Hickory ships to Joe.

I'm bummed.  I was excited.

I'm still working on packaging mine. In the sense that I need to get to it.

Working long hours the next week or so.
No big hurry.  Your previous picture has me excited.  I still need to get so parts to get my beer gun operational so I can ship to # ynotbrusum.  Did I just use a hash tag??

I am sending a box of beer to JT in Ohio tomorrow.
The homebrews include three treatments of an Imperial Porter (mostly Denny's recipe):  one is plain, one spent a short time in a bourbon barrel and one has added coffee and picked up a little brett.
There is a bottle of over-three-year-old Old Ale that spent some time in a Corsair Rye Whiskey barrel and also picked up some brett along the way.
A very fresh German Pilsner.
Local commercial beers include Coppertail Unholy Tripel, Green Bench Sunshine City IPA, Cigar City Tocabaga Red and their White Oak Jai Alai, which I just scored Friday.
Everything is in 12 ounce bottles and cans.
No challenge beer.

I'm definitely looking forward to this package!  Thanks in advance!

I wish I didn't opt out this round... sounds like more amazing beers being passed around.

I sent Eric's package out this morning:
Challenge Beer: "Cascade of Grapefruit" IPA with light and amber dme, lots of centennial and cascade in whirlpool (yea groundbreaking), the juice and oil from whole grapefruit run through a macerating juicer, some cane sugar and more cascade and centennial all added to fermenter after krausen and more centennial and grapefruit zest added in a tea ball in the keg.
My First Lager: I guess its a German pilsner or lager, maybe Eric can tell. Made with local malt.
Maple "Tej" 2014
Mixed Berry Melomel 2014
Locals:
Element Brewing Red Giant 750 ml, Miller's Falls Ma
Brewmaster Jack Rye Porter, Northampton Ma
Spencer Abbey IPA, Spencer Ma
Extras:
Valley Malt: I asked Eric to give me a grain bill from a list of malts I have from our local malster. 4# Vienna, 1/2# Biscuit wheat, 3oz chocolate wheat
4 oz honey from this past fall's harvest of my own hives.
