Get a taxidermist to clean the cat's skull up and make it into a tap handle.

I was planing on being part of the swap, but I just tasted a bottle from the stash. It's been at room temp all year, and is past it's prime. Should've invested in a walk in cooler...

Sorry to hear about your cat - I was never a cat person, but when the wife's cat finally meowed her final meow - I have to admit I missed the little pain. PITA or not they have a way of becoming part of the family.

I'd be willing to do a trade with you - even if you don't have the 12-12-12 beer.

Minus the couple I'm keeping to age longer, and the ones I'm bringing home for Christmas, I have 20 to swap (if that's not enough, I can cut back my reserve). I think we'll have plenty; I have no issue swapping with you. Mine have been at room temperature more or less as well, and I didn't taste any off notes.

I'm definitely not unloading more than 20 of these. I figured I'd swap a 6 pack with 3 people.

Ok, let me test one more tomorrow. It wasn't any off flavors, but just a reduction of flavor, if memory serves right from earlier this year. I could also just be overly critical, when I read what others write about their beer, it sounds great and I start to wonder about my own.

When's the cut off date? I would imagine these need to be in the mail by next week?

Hows this sound for the swap rules?

You'll ship to three randomly assigned people
You'll receive from two randomly assigned people
You'll ship a minimum of 44 ounces. (Two 22 ouncers, four 12 ouncers or any combination thereof).
As with previous x/x/x swaps, at least two of the bottles (regardless of size) should be the 12-12-12 Wee Heavy. You are welcome to also include other creations that the recipient might enjoy sooner. No "crap" beer that you just need to get rid of please.
In the end, we should all end up with at least 6 bottles of 12-12-12 and likely some additional varieties.

Please consider carefully:
If you are not 100% convinced that you will see this through, please do not agree to participate.
Please agree only if you are relatively sober at the time...then you can get as druck as you like...
If you've stiffed anyone in a prior swap, you need not apply.
If you've been stiffed in a prior swap, PM me with info and I'll filter the list accordingly.

Anyone who brewed this beer is elgible to participate!

I'd like to have everything arranged by 27Nov2012 so that we have a couple weeks to complete shipping, receiving, etc. So please respond in this thread before that time. I'll randomly assign each participant 2 recipients and post up the matches. At that time, it will be up to you to contact your recipients to get shipping info, etc.


It's a copy and paste from KingBrianI's 11-11-11 swap. The main difference is I opted to just have each of us ship to two people instead of three. We can certain ship to three though if you guys are willing. Let me know in the next day how many you want to ship to whether two or three.

I'd like to get everything wrapped up by the 27th. So we have a couple weeks to ship. Once everything is settled I will put everyone's names in a bowl and draw for who's shipping to who. Then I will post up the results and everyone can PM each other for shipping details.

The only problem I see is that if I send to 3, and receive from 2, I'm down by 1 swap. Are you going to be the 3rd person everyone ships to?

It sounds good to me, although the C&P'd rules and your addendum don't match - are we shipping to two, or three? I'd be up for three.

Just want to try and clear this up a bit. Sorry I forgot to post up "rules" earlier, first of all. So do we want to ship to three people? It is a small pool and I think it'd be much closer to a swap just not a one to one swap.

Also if you guys don't have other homebrew I think some local brew is acceptable.
