A Good Day  
Yesterday qualifies as a good day in many respects.

Red Sox 4 Yankees 2

I scored one of the first cases of Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale to come into Georgia. It is now hidden away for consumption when the proper time of year arrives.

Every member of the household is now working for pay (that happened last week, actually, but I haven't updated since then.)
Current Mood: awakeawake
Current Music: Hold music

Let the good times roll. :)

I'm very glad to hear that things are going well down your way. No Celebration Ale here, but other than that - not bad at all. :) I'm hoping to get over the border and score some of this year's Anchor Christmas Ale.

Cool on all three counts.

So if the World Series is still going at OVFF, we gonna hole up in a room and watch?

I wish. Since we're only going to be there Friday night, I'd hate to miss time in the public areas.

There's that bar right there, though, with TVs on. We could have a baseball filk in there ;)

You would know if anyone would: how easy/difficult is it to carry a sixpack of (full) beer bottles on a plane, without them being broken/exploding/other badness?
Bill Suttonbedlamhouse on October 20th, 2004 09:08 pm (UTC)
As easy as anything else. Carry it on in a small bag, pad it a bit if you need to (crumpled plastic grocery sacks work fine), and put it where you have the best control - overhead compartment is fine as long as the risk is low of someone shoving a huge suitcase on top of it.

If it is homebrew and likely to be overcarbonated, I'd carefully lift the caps and let some of the fizz out before getting on the plane (lift the cap just barely enough to hear the *fzzz* and then the cap will snap back on to the tops, practice it if you need to) and wrap the bottles in fairly thick cloth of some kind so that if they do go poof they won't leave glass in inconvenient places.

I'm getting the idea that this wouldn't, say, be a good gift idea for someone who's going home on a plane, then?

Not unless the giftee has time to consume the homebrew before leaving.

The problem being that the brew in question hasn't actually been bottled yet. I meant to bottle it earlier, but have been reading, and didn't realize how late it's gotten.
Bill Suttonbedlamhouse on October 21st, 2004 02:45 pm (UTC)
Well, in that case it probably wouldn't be a problem. It won't have had time to overcarbonate and will be rather benign.

Last night must have been even better for you then, eh? Go SOX!
