Ha! I had an old roommate in college that worked at UPS. He borrowed my car one night to get to work, returned it with a broken windshield. Probably don't want those bottles back!

My favorite UPS delivery, two not one TWO empty boxes that were supposed to be suspension struts. I was there when the guy dropped them off. The ends had been taped up & he insisted the contents were ok. I pointed to the weight, 12 lbs each, and asked him if the boxes felt like 12 lbs. he felt they were close. I made him wait while I opened the boxes. They were empty. At that point he admitted that something might be missing.

It's beginning to look like you've stumbled upon a plot perpetrated by the Establishment to keep a Brother ( and Sister) down. It's all about male corporate white oppression and the proletariat. We got to rise up and unite ! Let them know that this aggression will not stand! They treat women like... objects, man!


That or UPS just lost your stuff. It happens, I hear.

I confess. I called BYO and told them you moved to Midlothian, VA and in the meantime, I would accept the BYO bling on your behalf. They were very nice about the whole mixup.

That's insane. As many people begin to learn more and more about homebrewing, (just look at the increase in people here since getting kits for Christmas) it's insane for a publication like BYO to appear to be such slackers! I mean, sure we have a great time and tend to not take everything seriously, but when it comes to HB, well, there's no excuse.

Keep giving them grief Pastor. They more than likely got a few purchases from those that frequent this site alone.

I've been thinking of getting a subscription to BYO or Zymurgy.. I have to tell you.. after all the negatives I've read on here about BYO (issues not sent, months to get the subscription started, screwing a homebrewer...) I think my vote has been seriously swayed towards avoiding BYO and getting Zymurgy instead!

Plus, if you act fast - you can read my kick arse article in the latest issue of Zymurgy!
