Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

Newbi Swap Question
This is a newbie question so bear with me. I see all these threads about swapping on here. Do you normally just swap the same style of homebrew with people and then get together in the chat room and sample together? Thats what the impression I'm getting. That is such a great idea. Whenever I go to the chatroom there is never anyone there. I take it everyone sets a time to meet there rather than just going there for random chatting. I'm figuring you guys out here, right? I will be bottling a Delerium Tremens style beer tomorrow so if anyone has a similar style that they would like to swap let me know. I am all about swapping some brew.

Re: Newbi Swap Question
Hi Brian, your impressions are on target. There is not a huge community here, so going to the chatroom randomly almost gaurentees you will be there alone. The last couple weeks we've been trying to get together there on Tuesday nights, but so far the timing has not worked out all that well.

But yes, we a.) determine a direction for the swap, b.) ship beer to each other and c.) sample them together one by one in the chatroom at pre-determined times. It really is a great way to expand your horizons.

As far as getting involved with a swap, I think you pretty much need to have the beer done and in bottles or close to that phase to realistically have a shot at taking part. We are not exclusionary regarding who can be involved with any given swap (outside of stylistic criteria), but in my experience when you work around beers that don't yet exist the event becomes too long term in planning and usually never happens.

Re: Newbi Swap Question
Thanks, SteveG. At least I know how it works. I've been brewing a lot lately so hopefully one of these times I'll have something on hand that falls into a swap style.

Re: Newbi Swap Question
Just so you know you can suggest a swap theme. Worst thing that can happen is you are the only one who can take part! But if a few other people have something that can fit then it can happen. We had one like that, I think it was Chet who suggested a wood aged beer theme. I thought that was great, we had a dynamite event as a result.
