If all 12 of us participate, that's 11 shipments of 3 bottles each. So 33.

We could always just send 2 bottles to you. And visa versa.

Faub007 brings up a good point...If I don't hear back from the last brewer within a couple days, we should open up the last slot to someone who would like to contribute a holiday beer replacement. The beer in question was a Spiced Dunkel Weizenbock but obviously we won't likely have someone with that just laying around ready to send.

I'd say we could open it up to any stronger beer, probably 8% ABV minimum; RIS, Barleywine, or other strong ale, some sort of 'winter warmer'...something that would stand up to some aging until next Christmas for those of us who want to save and cellar one of each... If it happens to be spiced or fruited in some special way, so much the better...

I'll give MasterJeem until Black Friday to reply, then I'll send out the address list on Saturday or Sunday. Anyone who wants to throw their hat in the ring as a substitute, it's first come, first served...

If we don't have anyone new pitch in a 'spiced winter warmer' I have one fermenting right now that I'm bottling on Friday. I bottle it in bombers though, so I wouldn't have enough to do more than a single bottle to each person along with my other brew. Not my preference (nor I'm sure would it be anyone else's) but it's a possible option.

I would do 2 bottles to each if that would be agreeable. I made a pumpkin spice ale with blackstrap added.

Faub, you will be considered first back up for right now, if MasterJeem doesn't come back online, and someone with ability to ship 3 bottles to each doesn't come in with another reasonable substitute...

Just for more info, can you give us the data points (OG/FG/ABV, basic recipe) on your molasses pumpkin ale?

+1! I'm looking forward to opening my last bottle of it in a couple weeks!
