Definitely smell and look different. This guy I know has both on hand and his dog seems to know the difference. I'm sure a trained dog may get curious, and perhaps even thirsty for a cold one, but would quickly move on to another person's luggage. Those dogs are hard workers and deserve a happy hour after work just like the rest of us... uh oh... the Dusseldorfer has worked its magic and I am ranting...whoops!

-Cheers

Brewing on a plane is an awesome way to test your prowess. Can you imagine trying to get a good boil at that altitude?

Just curious, how did he know his dog knew the difference?

Anyway I will be flying in a month so will let know if I have any problems, maybe just print off some wikipedia pages in Turkish though as Turkish people wont have a clue what hops or malt is, dont want them insisting to open it up or something...

I've got it!

No I don't.

I was thinking that you need to design a fully automated brew rig that would fit in your luggage, but it would be mistaken for as bomb.

I'm living in Turkey and have brought back about 4 kits so far on various trips to the US and had no problem bringing anything through. I've always just kept the kits in my checked baggage (since the malt is technically a liquid) and in case there were any questions. I've even had my bags scanned and searched and the customs agents have ignored these as grocery items even when unpacked and placed into baggies.

The only thing they're really looking for is iPads anyway so you've got nothing to worry about. They did once threaten to take one of the many bottles of IPA I've brought through - they asked what it was and i just shrugged and said "beer" and they laughed and let me go.
