Hello All,

I'm a day late in starting this but here it goes. I stole most of this from the FOTHB III post #1, I'm not one to do excessive amounts of work.

Welcome to the fourth Fellowship of the Home Brew trade thread!!

This thread is all about sharing home brew with one another. I love my brew and it makes me very proud to be able to make it, I know you must feel the same. So from my house to yours, Lets get together and celebrate this great freedom of ours, HOME BREW!

So how does it work?
1. If you're interested in participating, let us know in this thread.
2. Send me descriptions of your Home Brew offerings.
3. A few days before the drawing I will post a full list of all the offerings along with posting the randomized pick order in 5min intervals.
4. If you are not going to be around for the pick send me a pick list order so that I can put your pick in for you.
5. On pick day, show up at your time slot to submit your pick. If you sent me a pick list I'll cover you. If you fail to send a list or show up you go to the end of the line.


Rules, there must be rules..
- Continental US residents only
- Must be of legal drinking age (I feel dumb having to actually type that, but prefer not to risk getting thumped by Yooper)
- Participants must have at least 1 iTrader rating, of course 100% positive, otherwise, just PM me your mail trading experience.
- The final rule is the participant must give feedback on itrader of their experience.


Offer Guidelines
- Minimum offerings are 4-12oz bottles of your favorite Home brew; ANY beer style along with ciders, meades, hard lemonaids, etc.
- If possible, 4 different styles, but we understand how difficult that can be so no flogging if it's not possible. :)
- Be willing to share recipe and explain your brewing techniques to those who request.
- Be willing to give constructive and useful feedback on the home brew you received to aid our fellow brewer if requested.
- Guidelines are just that, guidelines. Final shipments may, and many times do, exceed the offering posted. Extras are not required however.

Current Timeline
3/28/2018 - Start thread
4/25/2018 - Offers due
4/26/2018 - List of offers and pick order posted
4/28/2018 - pick day starting at 9am PST

Picks will be at approximately 5 min intervals. If you know your pick list prior to pick day, send it over a PM and I can take care of it for you.

So, let it begin............

The timeline is a bit too aggressive for me, unfortunately, so I’ll have to pass on this round. That said - I hope to be back for FotHB V

Nice, my hops are starting to look like that too. I have not brewed in months though. Just about got my system ready to rip though.

Wife is schooling for another 2.5-3yrs, and I make just enough to get by on a single salary...scrapping the pan. BUT in a few years we'll be alright. So depending on housing situation we'll relocate a few miles away (read= more sun, hotter, less work - hopefully ... Errrrrr for me).

Being someone who's been thumped thrice by @Yooper I can say it's been an enlightening and pleasurable experience. Carry on Wayne, and carry on Garth...
You made me laugh. I try to convince people I'm big, bad and scary, and you just ruined my reputation.

"Thumped thrice". It sounds like an 80s porn movie.

He's a fat, arrogant, senile prick. Otherwise, he's actually quite friendly (to me ... not my wife). You know those videos where the cat looks at the owner while it swipes something off a table; he's that cat!

Side note, I'd like to see @Brizzo join so that I can finally get my grubby paws on those sours that everyone raves about.

This sounds good.
I want in but...
- I have 0 iTrades on here
- I don’t have caps or a capper; I’m only a kegger.
- I definitely could have 3 different beer types by the deadline. Maybe 4.

...but, but...
- I’ve got street cred all over the place.
- I could remedy this with a 4 pack of Grolsch bottles or buy a capper.
- I can drink more faster to get more variety through my 2 tap kegerator.

Just started brewing again a few months ago and need to restock my own HB supply as well as work out a few kinks. Once I’m amply supplied, I’ll jump in.
