Out of curiosity, does anyone know what the laws are on this?

I read on one forum it can be a felony in some states. If that's the case then I personally wouldn't risk it. Sure it's unlikely that you'll get caught but how many times have we heard of guys who have had a home brew bomb due to too much carbonation? Now imagine that same bottle of beer is on a UPS truck and the driver calls the police because he thinks something exploded in your package. It wouldn't take much for the shipper to wind up on the wrong side of the law.

What I just read on a few govt. sites suggests we, consumers, need a permit to ship it but the retailers don't

I doubt the pictures will ever be re-linked. His last post was 3 years ago.

I think it's a great sticky... Can we get someone to rebuild it? Do we have the technology? :-)

Good to know.

The temperature is what concerns me. I have a few competitions I'd like to ship to in June, but with it warming up I'm not sure they would do well due to oxidation. The insulated box method sounds a bit expensive and I'm not sure it would keep it cool enough during the summer. I imagine it can get pretty hot on those trucks. What kind of experience have people had with this? Do the beers all end up oxidized by the time they get to their destination?
