    I read something that all packages are scanned. If so, how do they not see filled bottles. I don't think yeast samples is particularly a good idea. So, anyone have any issues lately. Is it more difficult sending boxes now because of the scan? Thanks.

    depending on package size, how much does shipping usually cost you?

    Was wondering if this is more of a new thing with the scan. I was thinking it was because of drugs to be honest after seeing a show where it showed scans of boxes that looked suspicious.

    Ive sent a couple boxes to Sweden. It runs about 80-100 dollars for a 12 shipper or so worth of beer and takes about 10 days from the east coast.

    USPS. It's the only way to do it really.
