    Just got my package today!

    Got a 1gal homebrew kit from Northern Brewing! It's the small batch starter kit, with the ingredients to brew a 1 gallon batch of Irish Red Ale.

    I just brewed it up, and it's fermenting as I type this. Can't wait to get it bottled and give it a shot!

    Thanks to whoever got it for me!!!

    The beer is fermenting well! Have some of the disinfectent stuff stuck to the outside of the jug, but that doesn't bother me. How does it look?

    No clue. Couldn't find any clue in the shipping paerwork. But I am guessing maybe DJSoulRiot? I remember that he started the brewery.

    Merry Christmas Will, there wasn't a way to include a note with the shipment, so it had to be sent anonymously.

    And got these lovely presents in the mail:

    Thanks, so much Smersh. I've heard great things about Dry Dock, haven't had any of their beers yet though. Merry Christmas everyone!

    FedEx just stopped by with my package from Hans. I was a little nervous to open it, since I'd gotten him a fleshlight-type thing last year, but this is perfect. Thanks bud!

    It's a lens adapter that lets me use my array of manual-focus Minolta lenses on my Lumix Micro 4:3. Can't wait to play with it! Nice note too btw. I await that special shipment. ;)

    So, is there anyone who hasn't received their SS gift yet?

    I haven't gotten mine and I. Don't think my as has gotten his yet. I should have sprung for the faster shipping, I'm sorry. Hopefully it will get to him soon.

    What was on my porch this morning?

    The gift I sent to my SS!! Why? I messed up the address at the post office dammit!!!!

    I don't want to be a deadbeat, so I'll send a PM to him and buy a big gift certificate of his choice.

    Sorry Jackalope... :(

    OK, so I've been ultra busy and should have done this sooner, but here's where we stand:

    The only people who haven't received their gifts yet are Kain and Jackalope (who coincidentally have each other)

    Octane, did you receive yours? I have confirmed delivery but haven't seen you post yet.

    I received mine yesterday.

    And a PM was sent to Jackalope so I can send him a big gift card.

    Yeah sorry again that you got it so late. Next time I'll be sure to go for the faster shipping, especially to America's hat :). Hope you like your useless box!

    I can show the parts, but I don'T have any soldering tool. I can't put it together.

    Then it's time to head to Radio Shack (or its Canadian equivalent) and get an iron. It's really not as daunting as it seems, and it's a useful skill to have. Melting metal with a hot stick, awwww yeah!

    Yeah, I know how to do it! I had one during my child years.

    Radio Scrap (The Source) it is!

    Hell yeah I will. These store are quite a letdown. No quality whatsoever, or overpriced.
