You should consider shipping the beer ahead of the wedding party. You will be able to ship a bigger quantity and it will have time to settle before being opened. With all of these new TSA "rules" of what we can and cannot pack you may not want to risk confiscation or anything that would cause problems...

You certainly don't want to be on double secret probation!

Recipe looks solid, though my personal preference is to not spice saisons as I'd rather just let the yeast shine. It's definitely a matter off preference though. I also like to dry out my saisons as much as I can, so I typically go 90 minutes on the mash, but if you're looking for it to not be "that" dry, 75 should be fine. 3711 is going to dry the **** out of it regardless though.

I am planning to take a bottle or two to the wedding and then give each person in the wedding party a nice labeled bottle when we get back... it's a pretty small wedding.

LOL - did they at least laugh? That would seriously piss me off but I guess they have you by the balls really.

After a number of comments on the spices, I think that I'm going to drop at least the ginger out. Would the orange peel play nice, or would you drop that as well? Thanks a lot for the feedback.

Got some quotes for shipping... looking at $200+ via UPS or FedEx, which seems a bit insane to me.

GEEZ!

Maybe you should call the airlines and see what they have to say. Or better yet have your fiancée make the call and play helpless..."I need to take these with me for our wedding and I just don't know what to do..."
