Our local competition schedule will be light until October. There are a lot of Midwest and National events that usually fill in this gap until we get to Oct. If there's interest I'd be happy to do a pack and ship clinic for brewers. I average 15-17 comptitions a year. At least 10-12 will require shipping. In 4 years and over 600 bottles shipped, I've only had 5 broken bottles. Learn from my mistakes!
- Packing materials,
- How to protect bottles
- How to build a leak proof shipping box
- What to declare on your shipping manifest
- Who to ship with and how to get it there cheap.
Next comp I have on my radar is the Indiana State Fair in Indianapolis & German Steinfest Challenge in Milwaukee.
