I live in Santa Rosa, Ca and can get the elder at the store right by my house. I REALLLLLY want to try a carmel vanilla cream ale and am looking to trade someone a PTE for a CVCA... If you have a CVCA, let me know and we can set up a trade.

Brian

Why not just brew a small 2.5-3 gallon batch of the CCVA so if you don't like it, you're not dealing with 5 gallons?

You don't have any friends to give a couple six packs away to? Just sayin a small batch is minimal risk.

By the time you buy teh pliny and pay for shipping, you could brew a small batch, If you don't like it, you're not out anymore than swapping 1 for 1. If you like it, you have more

I already have a PtE in the fridge right now.. so all im paying for is shipping. What, maybe 8 bucks? I dont know.. it makes sense to me to try one bottle before I even make a half batch.. and plus, im helping somone who probably has never had the chance to try the elder. I get where your coming from, however.
