      got any more pics of the relocation job up front? I am doing the same once mine comes back from paint and I am curious to see where you run everything in the bay.

      Not yet, was waiting to get everything in, before I cut the starter wire... I haven' t done anything with the grounds in the bay either, but I can take some different pics and post'em up if you let me know what areas you wanna see

      P.S. I can probably finish up the wiring tomorrow if it stayz nice out

      Blooooomooon is pretty good for a lighter beer. Killer penguin is really good in the winter months... 11.3 % and its delicious!

      I will drink pretty much any IPA

      I haven't found an IPA that I care for yet. 11.3, nasty. Taste as good as Steel reserve? I will have to try one when I'm up there. I like a bunch of different beers, but not everything. Dark beers FTL though.

      Laughing lab is goooood! Especially right out of the tap at Bristol in town.


      Looks damn good Chad!

      IPA's are an acquired taste for sure. The killer penguins are like a medium red version of a stella. Kinda sweet only slightly bitter. It doesn't taste like most 11.3 beers.

      When you come up here Matt we will hit up boulder brewery the night you come up and for lunch working on the car head to new belgium since it is right down the street from the shop.

      I will pretend yous did not say they're good beers (maybe good in a pinch). Try the OG wheat beers Franziskaner, Hacker-Pschorr, Pulaner, to name some proper wheats. Also if you dig the wheat try the Farm House style saison. I hear you CO guys have another good one from around there I think its called Fat Tire (lucky ungrateful so and so's /gurmble, curse, end rant).

      Hey the brewers of a good beer, imo, don't matter. Those beers fit my taste, but I am always willing to try new ones. I will give the ones you named a shot. And btw, I still like bud when I'm feeling cheap in taste.


      Kyle, I would agree with you about the funk, but I would rather not insult my ole' lady.

      Kyle, I would agree with you about the funk, but I would rather not insult my ole' lady.

      Oh so its a "family" funk?

      Make your list sir. I highly suggest Victory Festbier (Oktoberfest)

      Anyone know how to ship beer through UPS, "theoretically" of course?

      Dark beers FTL though.

      Sorry to hear that Nancy I think I am just about to crack open a Sam Smith Oatmeal Stout.

      If you think I am picky about other stuff... I can talk beer all day

      I am with Kyle, Micro Brew or bust. ...ohhh and wheat and rice are never to be used in beer, heeeheee

      USPS will not ship it, fedex and ups say no, but there is a way around it. We just have to label it as "yeast samples" and not really tell them what is in there. OH and shipping to Utah is a no no.

      They say to package each bottle individually so none of them break and cause suspicion. Also its about 20 bucks for a 12 pack just to ship it.

      What about the whole altitude thing?? I'd think about tin foiling the bottles and then hosing them down in spray foam in a bigger box. That might be easier than wrapping the hell out of each bottle.

      Altitude won't be an issue. Colorado has such drastic changes between say denver and estes park and no real issues there. Also I have gone from denver to way up in the mountains with no issues.

      I bet we can make a foam "case" that we could re-use doing this.

      I bet f I call Pelican they've already made one of these. McMasterCarr will solve this problem (seriously, those guys should have an "S" on their chest). Wait till I get home, I'm all over this.
