View Full Version : I have made a decision.

I'm going to bring a few bottles of my home made scrumpy to the New York meet. I'll be giving them out to any poster who would like them. I must stress that this is an entirely drink at your own risk sort of deal since the brewing process involved things like rotting meat plus they still need to be aged at least until next December. As Laz has said a scrumpy before its time is a horrible thing.

Other then that they should be good or atleast I hope they will be. It was my first batch though so there might be a slight learning curve.

Seriously- anyone taking a bottle really should let it age a year. Unripe scrumpy can taste astonishingly bad.

I've packed five bottles to give away. If no one wants them then I guess I'll take them back with me but if someone does want them then they'll be in NYC.

wow he is taking the exploding bottles.

23-03-2006, 22:50:05
will they be allowed on the airlines?

I guess we'll find out. ;)

I just hope that they don't break or explode on the way over. make sure you put them in sealed plastic baggies.

23-03-2006, 23:03:28
I put all of them into one big plastic trash bag and then packed them in my backpack (I use that instead of a suitcase) with my clothes all around them. Hopefully that will prevent them from breaking. I will have to check the bag so hopefully the baggage handlers don't rough them up to much.

They're now safely bottled so they shouldn't explode or at least I hope not. There is always the possibility that the low pressure will cause them to blow their top. God, that would be a bloody mess.

that's why i said sealed baggies..like those gallon gladlock bags. those have saved my clothes from shampoo and conditioner many a time.

As I recall ripe scrumpy can taste pretty awful too :vom:

More adventures with Laz inspired brewing.


One question. Did the tales of hands glued to table tops, and assorted near self-maimings, not tip you off?

Good news! The bottles are not broken and are now in New York City. I look forward to poisoning the lot of you with my home made concoction.

Oerdin, please, please can I have a bottle (if you have one to spare). You can give it to Funko to bring back for me.

By way of credentials, I am going to see a band who are giving away free cider to those who bring their own wellington boot, and obviously drink out of it...

I think I am qualified to give an objective assesment.

I'll mail you one.

Like the mail service is going to want to deliver it.
