Sweet, merciful jeebus-- HOPS!!
 
So I come home from work today to find a big package on the front porch.
I'm a bit puzzled as I know that neither I or SWMBO have any deliveries scheduled.
Take it inside & open it up. Well I will be dipped in all of it.

My brother, a tea-teetotaller BTW, sent me an early Christmas present.
1 bloody friggin' pound *EACH* of Citra, Amarillo, Goldings & Fuggles! All in nice little 1oz.packets

He knows I love to brew & it appears to me that he did some research.

The downside?
Now I need to figure out an equally cool gift for him.

Sumbitch

Holy $hit! What does he think you are supposed to smoke them! hahah

Seriously...awesome....you better clear your schedule for some serious brewing next year! :mug:

Very nice! I've been trying to score pounds of Amarillo and Citra for the past week. Looks like they're gone for a while, so you're lucky indeed to have those and in 1 oz packs no less. Cheers! :mug:

Surprised the crap out of me, he did.

I've been on Vella Cheese's web store putting his package together :)
I'll have give him Bacon of the Month Club too, methinks

nukebrewer 12-07-2012 01:21 AM

Mmmmm..... bacon. The cheese looks awesome, but mmmm..... bacon.

I am sure you will offer him some of your Home Brew as well!

What the deuce is a tea-teetotaller? I have been trying to figure it out but I failed...

It's someone who doesn't drink tea, but that's not important right now.

Anyway, it sounds like your brother wants something expensive for Christmas!

A person who completely abstains from alcoholic beverages may be called a teetotaler, a description which has surprisingly little to do with the non-alcoholic beverage known as tea. "Teetotaler" actually comes from a relatively obscure grammatical practice known as reduplication. By duplicating the first letter, the speaker gives additional emphasis to the entire word. Before it was applied to fervent non-imbibers, the term "T-total" was already in common use as a synonym for complete or absolute. A teetotaler, therefore, would be a person who has completely or absolutely sworn off the consumption of alcohol
