You could likely do without it and have a decent session beer (provided the rest of the kit is relatively fresh and you keep your fermentation temps low). You can get some StarSan sanitizer from a local homebrew shop (or Amazon if that's how you roll).

FWIW, if you are interested in homebrewing Northern Brewer is currently offering a free starter kit (buckets and bottling equipment) when you buy a brew kettle and beer kit.



If you are going to get into Homebrewing, I would definitely recommend Northern Brewery. Great site and great supplies. They pretty much sell anything and everything you need from the starter kits to recipe kits to individual supplies.

Mmmmmmmnope. It does mean that, I mean, but it has also long meant "peculiar" and "unusual." Read the usage note in your MW11 Collegiate.

short answer
create a free fed-ex account, then you will see on the upper right hand side upgrade your fed-ex account. enter your code in your tracking center and see the dimensions

Smartpost = Fedex hands off to USPS. (Which Sometimes works smooth But then the other times are questionable)

Home generally means Fedex mine states 3day. Which is how amazon always sent my packages.
Think it's amazon that ships out of Washington also. I generally get those in 1-2days.

I wish us all good luck on Our Bundle of Curiosity

hmmm...interesting.

OK, it's left Irving and still placeholders for size & weight...this could be a very long couple of days! ;)

Smartpost is available here-I'm near Portland, OR...usually works fine. Certainly hasn't prevented me from incrementing my square resolutely upward, anyhow, ;)

I'm in TX too, and although I've checked FedEx by ref. #, I only see the 1 lb holder. Still haven't got an email with tracking number.

I'm going to guess they're working on finding a suitable Bastion Of Candidates. Even now, I'm trying to concentrate on work and not f5ing the heck out of my email and that FedEx page.

Glad I'm not as hen-pecked as you guys. My wife enjoys seeing the Bags of Crap that I get, and has even gotten a few of her own. And we have nothing to complain about the cost, after getting 20 BOCs, my total cost is -$57. Yes, that's negative $57, since I sold a few of the items. But even better, I've had all this wonderful Crap!

This wasnt my item, was viet's. I was asking for more info on his bundle too.

I still have a placeholder as I figured I would. I was in the very last set at 9pm on the last day. Im just here waiting patiently. Entertaining myself with yalls weight and dimensions. Wondering what kinds of goodies everyone will get.

Bouts of Consternation from 5/23/12 at about 3AM CST.

3.2lbs
3XL Green Shirt (Blank)
Notebook "Hell Is Other People" on the cover
Empty paper bag with woot exclamation mark
CowParade stuffed cow with surfboard lol (New in package)
TrendyBudz earbuds (New in package)
Cheap Women's watch lol?
Leather Kindle Fire Case

Probably one of the best Bouts of Consternation#39;s I've gotten but still very useless. I will use the earbuds and notebook I guess. It did made me laugh though.

We've just received a missive from the front lines where Colonel Crap is pinned down, under fire from a squad of sentient Roombas. He assures me it's just a flesh wound and wanted you to know the Crap must go through.

In fact, it started shipping yesterday and should complete today.

Buy war bonds!



Thanks to Gatzby for getting my message out and thanks for the cover story. Fact of the matter is, the Colonel was struggling to figure out how this new radio works. In my day, you'd just push the button to talk and release to listen. This new system with all it's buttons and lights caused me to have to get one of our snot-nosed privates to explain it to me. Now that I'm able to communicate again, I'm happy to report that the entire deployment of Bandwidth Obstacle Campaign should be complete by 1800 hours today. More than ever, Stay Calm...and Carry On. The Colonel

That's not bad at all. I think the bragging rights and the mystery of the crap is worth the $8. If mine was filled with nothing but Texas air I would laugh my ass off and love it.
