So I just bottled up 23 five ounce bottles of various hot sauces. And I still have one half gallon, one quart and a pint jar left to go.

Who else wants to trade anything for some??? :D

I'll trade you some fire for fire.
I got tired of packaging 5oz bottles; I now fill 10oz woozy bottles.
I've got two flavors at the moment; Datil and Smoked Trinidad Scorpion 'Butch T' strain.

I ferment the peppers (along with sea salt) for ~3 years before adding white vinegar. 2:1 ratio by weight (peppers:vinegar).
Cold-smoked the scorpions with Jack Daniels oak barrel chips.
For some reason, the Butch-T strain is not as hot as the scorpions I got right from the island. The Butch-T strain is supposed to be prolific and disease hardy. That they were.

I'd love to sample your four flavors. You in?

Dude, so in. :ban::ban::ban:

I don't have anything like the sounds of what you make. Just basic fermented peppers. They are amazing to me though. I guess I need to start trying different things. Maybe I will after I try yours.:D we are still pretty new at this.

I will pm you when my daughter lets me get on the computer.

Sorry I missed the picking. I was up all night. I thought I set an alarm. I am in CO. Near Denver
Sweet less than half way across the country!;)

I am going to try to get that box out to you mid week or so. I am going to assume you do want the hot sauces too.

By the way, I know I am running the next one; however, I figured I can afford to give it a few weeks before posting anything. Several of the traders here are still a few weeks out until they can ship anyways. I may wait until all traders confirm shipments before doing anything ... I dunno ... indecisive.

I do have a backlog and at least 3 weeks until I can ship this round out, so I for one am good with the delay (sorry @TBC , bottling day got pushed this weekend while I f'd around with my keg...)

Wow. I've been so busy, I completely forgot I had something coming.

And for the next few days I'll be busy trying to get @TwistedGray 's box together so I can get it shipped.

No rush at all, I leave town next Friday for a week, and still have a metric f-ton of beer :)
I kind of have to rush. I have four different beers being donated for a charity auction next Saturday, and not all of them are packaged yet. Your beers are coming from those same batches...

Okay, so this is what I have so far.

Who has already shipped

@FunkedOut
@JDXX1971
@TBC

Who is shipping within the next week or so
@Dade0
@fourfarthing

Whose beer is in the works
@imasickboy

Unknown
@jerbrew (?)


If Jerbrew can confirm shipment, I might as well get the next thread going. I suspect most of us who brewed for this round have brews left for the next round? I am debating on the timeline...input would be appreciated.

Roof, ac and ducts replaced, bathroom done..Basicly. The rewire and new lighting is why we're out. Inspections in Austin are 1 week delayed plus the time tp repair all the holes. Sucks but we found a decent place that takes dogs and they gave us a discount.

There you have it! You still go to the house on a daily? I'd have a hard time trusting anyone, lol. Last (non-friend) contractor caught our house on fire.

We're actually not out till the 31st , last day of school for the grandkids. IDK, I'm literally working 6- 10/12hr days to pay for this so I'll probably check on them every few days.

My FotD offer will be in tonight..

This sucks:(, I got nothing for the next round. Only thing I have is 4 gallons of stout aging.
