    The rankings are in (minus two people who never completed there forms)

    Check out the overall rankings here:
    http://urbancaver.wordpress.com/unwanted-whales-bif-2/5-0/

    a few surprises in there!

    Keep in mind, as you get down to the lower end the numbers become less and less meaningful

    Matching is in progress. It looks like roughly half of the beers/people will match this round!

    I can tell you already that the following beers will not match for sure:
    Dark Lord Vertical
    Sam Adams Millenium
    50N 4E
    Deviation
    Bourbon Vanilla Dark Lord
    Cable Car 07

    Sad but other high performers will likely match! There is a lot of potential in this round of rankings!

    Was excited to see if DL vertical or Sam Millenium would move. Too bad, but still can't wait to see what bottles did match!

    Biggest surprise to me is how low Brandy DL is compared to the other BA Dark Lords. And the '77 Courage RIS, novelty alone had that pretty far up my rankings!

    I don't think mine will match unfortunately, since a couple of my wants have already been ruled out

    I know I saw the same thing myself. I just can't imagine that it's that good...

    The rankings don't mean a whole lot on if you paired. Cam saying bottles that didn't pair will rule you out however :wink:

    I don't think so, although I thought they were supposed to go out yesterday. Any word, Cam?

    So whats the concensus on extras? I have a one bottle shipper I would love to use, but if most people give extras then I don't want to be the party pooper.

    Expectedly, I did not match.

    In the past, I have sent and received extras. Although I don't think anyone would be offended if they didn't get them

    also no match this round.

    last round with my TS15 I sent a 2009 La Folie. I also received an extra in my box.

    Awesome, I matched. Unfortunately, I'm going to be out of town during the shipping time, so I might have to send early.

    I matched one of the two. Im definately curious to what Ill get though since a lot of my rankings were very different than the final results.

    I matched and will be sending a few extras, not too sure what yet.

    Definitely excited to see what I matched up with.

    Think I'll ship on Monday as well, my box doesn't have to go to a coast, so it'll be a fairly short transit.

    Planning to ship on Monday or Tuesday. My target has recently posted in this thread :slight_smile:

    Dropping my box off today. A few extras in the box and the hint for the extras is A.O.B. The match I'm sending has a bottle count of less then 800.

    I've been away from this site for a while, but I'm thinking of extras for my recipient, does this site have a users wants list any more? Am I dense, how do you get to it?
