    Have they invented a box big enough for this shipment?

    It can be done; I got the 280 or so ounces I sent all in one 33 pound box ...

    I once had a 37lb box with a little over 300 oz in it and it all fit, but it was a monster.

    edit: This box was more than double the minimum but not quite that big
    ...and is scheduled to arrive Thursday!

    The escalation here is kinda scary... I'm starting to feel bad for my target that I shipped so early.

    Yeah I thought I had an awesome box coming together, and then I saw a couple of these hauls.... to my target: I'm sorry.

    You guys are all killing it. The minimum was set but so far every single haul has gone beyond the parameters!

    keep it up!

    Also I have to say @Kurmaraja is a fucking beast!

    Oh, man - certainly didn't want to make anyone apologize. I just happened to have a bunch of barleywines that needed a good home. I got stupidly enthusiastic with my purchasing this winter so I thought I'd get stupidly enthusiastic clearing some space in my garage.

    It's saison time now! Anyone wanna do a saison bif? ;-)

    Halfway through the BIF, 11 hauls so far, 2 BCBBW. My 5 is looking pretty solid. LOL

    Hah, that was a little mixed between sincere and fishing for a rebuttal. I didn't clear out a whole garage but I think I did ok, 4 or 5 BAs/Old Ales and a handful of IPAs (based on wants/hads, this is the preferred style of my target).

    I hate how amazing an idea this is. Let's just wait until like the end of June, with a July shipping window and I'm totally in. To my hypothetical target: you will be getting a growler of Tired Hands.

    Multiple boxes landing today on my porch, came home to a mountain haha. Just like Christmas morning at eight years old. First off we have our Barley wine BIF and i'm pretty sure the devastation was caused by @grrrah. Jesus tap dancing christ, I love trading with people from candy-cornia, I mean California. Always generous as all hell.

    Redemption (never had but happy to try it)
    Pliny the Elder (never can go wrong)
    Almanac Heirloom Pumpkin Barleywine (was getting jealous some of our other recipients got it so pretty happy)
    Russian River Glassware (probably didn't want me to drink anything in the inappropriate glassware)

    [​IMG]

    Firestone Sucaba (permanent want)
    Hanger 24 Brewery Barrel Roll No.4 (never even heard of but sounds good)

    So I may have lied when I said I would ship last weekend, just dropped a 28lb box off at fedex a half hour ago. And I had to make some last minute changes to my box after seeing my target send some of my home state ba barleywines. Hopefully i dont dissapoint too much. My ba barleywines have either no rating or only one rating, so i guess they will by wild cards.

    Wild cards are awesome! Nothing better than coming across the unknown gem in a trade.

    Hopefully I can get in on the next one.

    Sorry, didn't you hear? We're all about being exclusionary and keeping things to ourselves here on this site...

    Then again.... if your avatar and your extras match up, maybe we'll let you in after all.

    The timing on this one may have been a bit off, I deciede to run a BIF a month before my wedding, not the best idea. Luckily for the most part this guy is on auto pilot. Plan on opening Old Nuptial this weekend :wink:

    If this one goes well maybe I'll run another one going into the winter months

    everyone is invited, ofcourse

    Don't wait until "going into the winter months" to hand in that BIF V-card... we're all about BIF sluts around here. I was told "it can be hard to get into one because they close up quick" so I signed up for every one I saw in a three week span... I'm now in about 5 of them... if you watch this forum for "NBO" (New BIF Opportunity) it's not hard to find one.

    Final hint. Porch bomb landing tomorrow in the former home state of Shabazz, Kemba, Emeka and Richard. That should resolve that oddball hint I dropped a couple weeks ago (and props again to the BA who actually figured that hint out, you know who you are...)

    To my target.. Your box will be dropped off at FedEx Monday night, I missed the deadline yesterday, and don't want to cook your beers in a warehouse over the holiday weekend. But I will add something to your box from my weekend travel to make up for it.
