Mail is out for delivery today. Hopefully arrived as well.

Crazy porch bomb waiting for me this evening. I can’t wait to try each and every one of these!

Although it relates more to commercial beer than homebrew, for anyone who is interested the 2022 Fellowship of the Drink Secret Santa Beer Swap is now live over here: 2022 FotD Secret Santa Beer Swap

Any former participants in FotD or FotHB are welcome to participate - just read the first post, post in the thread, and send me a template!

Hi all!

Quick question regarding the timeline for the next trade. Considering the craziness of the holidays, I was thinking of posting the next thread in the middle of January. That way, things have time to slow down and we can also put a wrap on this round. (Correct me if I'm wrong but by my calculations, one person still needs to ship.) Please let me know if this works for you guys and if so, I'll get the next round going in mid January.

Please forgive me if I'm overcommunicating. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't keeping anybody waiting too long.

Happy holidays and I hope you all have a happy new year!

I mean I get that. Teaching and the medical field are swamped (teacher). That said at least send you the offering and if they aren’t solid anymore send some comercial

@aharri1 I'm so ashamed of myself! I don't know how the days are flying by so fast. Thanks for the reminder!

Not only have I not been able to brew or bottle anything new in the past few months, I haven't even had a chance to drink any beer. I need to sample the beer in my kegs for quality this weekend. The meads are bottled and ready and I've got some great commercial beers. I scheduled some PTO because I just really need some time off, so I'll be off work for ten days when I get off Thursday morning. If my homebrews have aged poorly, then I'm going to go ahead and pack up some commercial beers and the meads and send them your way. If the homebrew is still good, then you'll get the original offer, plus a second box with some great commercial beers and an apology gift also.

I will ship by Friday the 27th at the latest! Hopefully I'll be able to ship sooner though, I'm gonna shoot for Monday, but procrastination is one of my faults. Is the address you gave me still good?

I also want to thank @Dgallo and @3 Dawg Night for the proper amount of friendly shaming to get me motivated!
