Well I am about ready to send my Xmas case off to GL's
I have not included all the brews I intended but have a good selection just the same .
I am going to have around 24 bottles , this is more than required so if there are any extras perhaps we can drink them in early December while I am in Perth.

I think we have
GL
Batz
Dee Bee
Jasony
Barfridge


Cheers Batz

Cor blimey, I better whip up something real quick :|

Due to my last 2 brews being somewhat...ermm....crap, I'll need to find something to send along, and some bottles to put it in.

By the way, are they supposed to be ~375 or ~750 ml bottles?

Yeah I think thats right. But its not too late for anyone else to chuck their hat in the ring.

Barfridge, any size bottle will do, mine will be 750s. I can find some spare bottles if you are stuck.

I have bottled a SFPA with chinook as a finishing hop, havent tasted it yet but that was going to be the case beer. Planning to brew an ESB next week and then put a chocolate porter on to that yeast cake, so might include them if they come up OK.

Now,... who wasnt paying attention in class?

The guidelines were set down as:

1) Let n be the number of sand people. You supply 2 x (n-1) bottles to GL.
(looks like n =6, you supply 10 bottles. That puts 2 bottles in each case, except your own. You get a Christmas present of 10 bottles of beer)

2) Bottles are 750 ml.

3) Bottles to GL (thats me) by 4 Dec.


Now, here in the west we are flexible. You can use 375 ml, but it would be better to double the number of bottles so we get the same amount each. You can make it all the same brew or you can mix it up like Batz has. But you have to keep to the spirit of the concept.

Its not some old bottles you had hanging around at the back of the shed. Its a brew you created, crafted and nurtured, to the best of your current brewing capability, with the specific intention of providing your AHB chums with maximum drinking pleasure over the Christmas period.

Dont forget some brewers are their own worst critics. Whatever you produce is going to be tasted with interest by your AHB chums.

And if I have to type out the guidelines again, someone is going to end up writing lines!

That sounds like only 8 bottles. I thought Asher was putting in?

If it's only five of us then maybe we should make it three bottles for each other contributor ie 12 bottles. 8 bottles does not a carton make.

I'm another sandperson and willing to have a crack, I've only done one AG so far which is still slowly fermenting but as its too late for the WCB comp tomorrow it will have a nice long time to lager by the time December comes up and hopefully be able to turn something else out buy then too!

Cheers

Yep count me in too. I cracked a Big Dog IPA last night. Bloody beautifull... It was quite nice to drink someone elses work for a change...

So does than make n=8 (14 long necks to GL)?

I'll CP fill some bottles close to delivery date..

Update on the Trumer Dunkle. Diacetyl resting as we speak. plan to keg & CC later this week. Fermentation is going well.

Asher for now

Excellent work fellas.

At the moment its
Batz
GL
Deebee
Barfridge
JasonY
Goat
AusDB
Asher
so its 14 long necks each and you get the equivalent of more than a carton of beer for Christmas.

Needs to have a label on the bottles and to get to me for 4 Dec. I have some cardboard boxes saved up, but when Batz is here early Dec maybe we can meet up, bring a crate with your own beer, and take it away with your Christmas case.

After all, you wouldnt want me to get arrested doing the midnight milk crate raid on a deli would you?

If you were delivering via bike we may have to insist on placcy bottles to preserve the contents during any radical curbing manouvers you make along the way :eek:

Firing up "Phase 3" of the Bruhaus this Sunday to brew my Christmas Case Beer.....
"Santa's Little Helper" - California Common (Steam) Beer"

Hows everyone else's looking?

I've got a keg of the AHB - Trumer Dunkle lagering too. Could be a perfect opportunity to drink it when we pick up our cases!

Asher for now....

Excellent, never tried a steam beer.

JasonY
APA works well as I drank my AHB case APA. Mine is now looking like an ESB which is in secondary and I will be bottling next week.

Cases to my place by 4 Dec.

Phase 3 Asher? What have you done?

Fast-breeder Reactor for the HLT ?

I hope to be doing a Pils this weekend for the box - I got a 6th in the recent Club comp, so I'm feeling very confident !!! (the fact that there were 6 entries took the shine off the result a little but I remain undaunted)

How about we get together and all bring our donation bottles and a box and all leave with our donated bottles and box? Easier than leaving someone with the sorting job. Have a few beers while we're at it? We can drink Asher's beer and the extras that Batz is sending down ;-)

If no takers for venue, we could probably do it at mine.

Or I could just shut up and we could stick to the original plan, drop beers off and no drinking then collect beers later and no drinking. That would mean no drinking, though. :chug:
