It's time for Fellowship of the Home Brew,
So come and try some really tasty beers.
This beer exchange is not something anew.
It's been going on for over seven years.

So pull out your boil kettles and carboys.
Find your tastiest recipes to make.
In brewing, and tasting, there are such joys.
It's not too hard; in fact, a piece of cake.

You need four good beers if you want to share.
Stout, porter, helles, wheat, or IPA.
We'd even take a sour, aged on pear.
Get your best beers ready without delay!

If you think others brew better than you:
Relax, don't worry, and have a home brew!

Welcome to the FotHB Society...membership dues are payable to @PianoMan and @TwistedGray.

How to become a member of our super secret, public, everyone is invited (well...kinda) society of FotHB traders:
1. Review the previous FotHB threads - linked at the bottom.
2. Express your interest in this thread.
3. Have four beer styles in bottles, kegs, fermenters, or otherwise in the immediate works. If you have only a single style of beer in your inventory, you have some catching up to do.
4. Send a private message to me including descriptions of your homebrew offerings (see previous FotHB rounds).
5. If you are not going to be around for the pick date/time, send me an ordered pick list so that I can pick on your behalf.
6. On pick day, submit your pick during your designated time slot. If you have sent me a pick list I'll cover you.
7. If you show up late on draft day, you haven’t submitted a pick list, and your position has been passed over, you will be the next in line after whoever the current picker is. (Example: You were pick #2 but you show up during #6's will get to pick #7, then it resumes the picking order.)
8. If you completely forget and do not show up on draft day, it will become a first-come-first-serve free-for-all.

Rules! There must be rules!
- Continental US residents only
- Must be of legal drinking age
- Participants must have at least 1 iTrader rating, of course 100% positive; otherwise, just PM me your mail trading experience. Newbies are welcomed but must be vetted by their peers. It’s best if a current or former participant can vouch for you.
- All participants are expected to leave feedback on iTrader once their package is received.
- All other matters fall under General Rule 1: Don’t be a jerk.

Note: If you have not shipped beer before and have no one vouching for you, check out the Local Only Trade thread and get involved there first. You can get iTrader feedback in time to get involved in this round of FotHB; just be snappy about it. OR offer a trade in this thread; most of us are interested in small trades to help HBT members get involved.

Offer guidelines
- Minimum offerings are 4-12oz bottles of your homebrew: ANY beer style, along with ciders, meads, hard lemonades, sours, etc.
- If possible, 4 different styles are preferred. One style is not enough, but 2-3 might be allowed depending on group consensus.
- Be willing to share recipes and explain your brewing techniques to those who request.
- Be willing to give constructive and useful feedback (if requested) on the homebrew you receive.
- Guidelines are just that, guidelines. Shipments often exceed the offering posted. Extras are not required and should not be expected. You should be OK with receiving the offer as posted.

Important Dates and Times
Sunday, 25 Jul 21 - Offers due.
Wednesday, 28 Jul 21 - List of offers, pick order, and pick times posted once all orders are in.
Sunday, 1 Aug 21 - Pick Day! First pick is at 5pm EDT, 4pm CDT, 3pm MDT, 2pm PDT.

Timeline is subject to change, depending on feedback from participants.

Caution: we have had a number of members forget the dates and times; put it in your Google Calendar and/or set reminders.

The pick order will be determined by an online list randomizer. The #1 pick is on the hook to host FotHB XV.

What happens on pick day
- The first picker will have five minutes to make their selection.
- The second picker will have up to five minutes to make their selection.
- Rinse and repeat until all members have chosen (see notes above about late arrivals, no-shows, etc.).
- There will be a timeline provided by the OP (me) that includes pauses in order to update the available offers, let people catch up, etc.

I see I was tagged, but never got a notification 🤷‍♂️. Luckily I've been lurking in these threads ever since I entered my first one. So with that out of the way, I'm fairly sure I'm in. I've been brewing as much as ever; though which specific offerings will be contingent on the timing.

Anyone know @yoop89 outside of HBT? He's the last offer we're waiting on, and I haven't been able to contact him. If I don't hear from him by tomorrow, we'll have to carry on without him.

Come on, @yoop89! There are some great offers in this round already! You're not going to want to miss out!
