    OK all PMs have been sent so everyone should now know where to send their beers. If there are any problems or questions then let me know :thumba:

    Also if you can mention in this thread when you've posted and/or recieved your bottles it means I can keep track of what's outstanding and who needs a gentle reminder :D

    Pringle tubes with thin bubble wrap works perfect.

    Pringle tube double layer of thin bubble wrap three labels came to 2nd class £3 postage. No guarantee of being keep right side up so it will need to settle. Shame as the beer has a firm sediment layer a so we shall see, best to post straight away so plenty of time to settle again

    Mine are going to go out quite late, probably the 16th (sorry). Beer was only bottled last weekend and I want to try one before sending to make sure it's not a dud.

    Send it anyway. Dud or not? It is the effort that counts

    What happens if it is a dud?
    Someone will go without if it's not sent

    Oh another thing, if someone posts here saying they've received the beer you sent, don't "like" or reply with "glad it arrived safely" or something like that. Anonymous remember, and yes people have done this in the past :laugh8:

    Fear not, no one will be going without. I've got other brews I could send. But they're kit brews whereas this one's from an original recipe, so i'd prefer to send an interesting beer, but if I'm not happy with it my recipients will get a perfectly OK beer.

    Tonight I’m tasting the two choices I have to send so I can decide which I think is better and will head to the post office on Monday.

    Hi @strange-steve - I've just come across this thread due to being a slack git. I'd like to participate, but appreciate I've missed the deadline for you to plan me in. Enjoyed it last year so much though, would you mind sending me the name/addresses of a couple of participants so I can send off a couple of beers, even if there's no return?

    Cheers,
    Riley
