Sorry I won't be participating in the swap. Being stored too hot for 2 months while we were between houses, moving to a new place, then living through a partial flood of the new house, mine did not make it. Or I screwed something up somewhere (thought I tried to be awfully careful). Either way, I wouldn't feel right trading my bad beer for someone's good.

Looking forward to seeing reviews and tasting notes on what everyone else came up with though. I'd made the original recipe, and was really hoping to compare it to one made with crystal. Make sure all you lucky traders update here, so I can live vicariously. Enjoy!

I used 20 lb of Golden Promise.
8 oz Roasted Barley
EKG for 27 IBUs
White Labs Edinburgh Ale yeast.

My OG was a bit light, this was my first really heavy beer and I didn't know about the loss in efficiency.

I'm starting to wonder if we're going to make it in time for 12-12-12.

Honestly, not the end of the world. These are strong enough beers I'm not sure I want to drink 4 of them in one day anyway. I'd still be game just to try some of the other attempts, regardless of when I get them.

I've never mailed beer before. Is there a way to do it that works well? Just pack them in a box and send it via USPS? Tell them it's beer?

USPS typically doesn't ask what's in the package at least not in my experience. They are also cheaper for smaller parcels. UPS does ask. Neither will knowingly ship alcohol because in order to do that there has to be someone on the other end providing ID and signing for it. You can ship "Live Yeast Samples" though

Yeah 12.12.12 probably isn't going to happen at this point, which is fine by me. This thing needs to get moving though. I'd like to swap with xeerohour and any two other people on the list.

FYI bottlebomber, even though my recipe is close, it spent several months in a five gallon oak barrel. So I have some strong molasses, sherry, boozy flavors, caused by a combination of oxidation in the barrel and the rum/bourbon mix that this barrel was previously used before.

I'm still more than willing to swap with you, but full disclosure and all.

Sounds delicious. Mine was oaked, and I soaked the oak in Macallan 18. Full disclosure

If there's anyone up in the Nashua area in another few weeks, mine will be on tap and ready for pouring. Just be sure to have either a designated driver, a full stomach and/or be prepared to wait until you're safe to drive if you come over.
