Just as a data point, I've taken homebrew as carry-on at least 4 or 5 times. There's never been any hassle with the security people. Sometimes they ask what it is, because on their X-ray screen an upright six-pack looks like six quarters floating in midair. I just tell them it is beer, and they say OK, and that's that. A bottle of something doesn't seem very threatening to me, as long as it *obviously* has no detonation device. (Don't pack your homebrew into the body of a radio, for instance.) One of the security people even told me about some guy from Japan who had come through a few days before with two cases of Coors to take back home with him. (Americans are worried about being taken over by these people??? ;-) I've never tried carrying beer onto an international flight, but I might give it a go soon. I'll let you know how that works out. -- John Polstra jdp at polstra.UUCP Polstra & Co., Inc. ...{uunet,sun}!practic!polstra!jdp Seattle, WA (206) 932-6482 Return to table of contents

Where does this fit into the brewing process? What is the proper "steeping" temperature. And, most importantly, why not boil? Thanx in advance, Drew Return to table of contents
