Thanks for the advice guys - I have (knock on wood) never been stopped by customs at PEK yet...and I usually enter the country 5 to 7 times a year. Here's to hoping I continue to "sneak" by. And it looks like I'll/my in-laws, friends, and parents will be growing some hops this summer (and the next couple of years) so I can bring them back to the 'Jing, we'll see how that goes.
