OK, I'm moving the conversation on Beerswapping here.

Who's all interested in trading beers, and what do you have to trade? Counting on everything going well, I'll have Caramel Vanilla and Kolsch ready in a couple of weeks, and Pumpkin before Christmas.

Let's make a couple of simple rules. It goes without saying that money should never trade hands. A beer for a beer is fair, no matter what the beers in question.

1. Anyone who trades has to take criticism as mere opinions on how to improve and are not personal digs. I'm hoping to get good tasting notes from you guys so that I make it better next time. Hope we can keep it civil.

2. Taste your beer before agreeing to trade it. If it tastes bad, simply state that you're not satisfied with the quality.

3. While it should end up even, let's not make problems. If someone sends you two beers and you intend on sending two, but one sucks, just send one with an IOU.

4. Everything shipped 2-3 day. Fair?

5. Don't ship until it's ready. That means at least 3 weeks in the bottle.

6. Broken bottles are no one's fault. If the sender feels like sending a make-good, that's them being generous but shouldn't be demanded or expected.

7. Send the recipe, either in the shipment or via e-mail. This will save a lactose intolerant person from making an enemy. This also allows me to make your beer if I like it.

Are these rules fair? Anyone have anything else they'd like to add? Let's keep this fun and useful.

Sounds good to me. Just a warning, while I won't intentionally send a bad beer I may not realize it's as bad as it is I am bottling my Kolsch and my Black Lager this coming weekend, both should be ready 3 weeks from then. I am looking forward to getting feedback as the only peolpe who have drank my brew so far are friends and sometimes they aren't truthful. Tell me it's great when I am finding flaws with it.

I would love to participate in this. I've just got one batch a Scottish Export in bottles for 1 week only right now and the next a wee heavy won't be ready to drink until Christmas. I'll have to hold off until I take my first tastings in a week but if it's any good I'll have something to trade.

OtherWhiteMeat, I'd love to try that Apricot Ale, I'll have a very lightly hopped Scottish Export 80/- ready in a week. It's plenty dark. You interested?

Cheesefood, Tried one of my Kolsch after a little over a week in the bottle. Pretty flat but not bad. I'll try another one over the week end and make a decision then when I'll want to ship.

Street - my Kolsch is a tad flat and doesn't appear to be getting any more carby. It's yummy, and I think as a homebrewer you'll like it, but there's little head. I went .5 cups cheap on the prime sugar. Still, I'm drinking it and loving it, albeit the way a parent loves an ugly kid. I'll still trade with you and you'll still enjoy it partially.

Cheesefood, I sent you an email. I'm set to swap anytime you want. The Kolsch is good(drank a six watching football today) The dark beer will be ready by the time you get it.
