Hey once I finish my first batch, I wanted to send my buddy some. He is thinking of getting into the hobby.

Is it safe to ship or will you end up with bottle bombs? Also, will the vigurs of shipping alter the beers taste?

There's a resource for you. It can be shipped safely, I've done it. Just make sure not to use USPS because it is illegal. It shouldn't affect the flavor much as long as your bottling practices are sound, just have the recipient stash the beer in the fridge for a few days before enjoying.
