    Wanted to know if anyone else has had issues with Silva Stout bottles breaking on them during shipping? After hearing a few other people going through this is making question qc on the bottles. Strange how all Shaggys make it there (destination) with no issues (same box packed well) but Silva bottles break...it's been a pain replacing these bottles...oh well

    *Cheers

    I checked in because I was wondering what they smelled like. False advertising. ;)

    I sent 10 ( 6 Silva 4 Shaggy ) to NY from CA - no issues.

    That said, I have a box out for delivery in CT today that was on weather hold for 5 days, it's probably fucked.

    I have a replacement box on the truck for delivery in Chicago right now (4 Silva, 4 Shaggy). I wrapped each bottle in ziplock bags so any leaks should be mitigated.

    The original leaking box is supposed to be delivered back to me today by FedEx.

    i would pour a new foundation for your porch, he drops weight like the entire Lane Bryant staff when his boxes arrive, even the bottles have stretch marks.

    Something is screwy about that Chicago Fed Ex hub...

    They have been calling me saying that there were issues with my shipping labels? I am assuming that because i didnt have a 21+ signature requirment.

    Regardless, my package should arrive back to me tomorrow. I will let you know whats up and resend ASAP.

    So is this a serious overcarbonation issue? And if anybody has an inkling, is it just with Silva or with Shaggy too?

    My CT box made it through rain, sleet, and snow.

    Silva is overcarbed though. Swirl it around for 15 minutes before you drink it. Kills the taste.

    Hmm, I'm trading for a bottle of this to include in a BIF box. This thread is making me a bit nervous about that.
