If anyone holds it against you, they were probably going to flame you at the conference anyways. Good luck!

My first batch was a little high on the final gravity too, it usually tastes fine, but it may be a little weak. Two tips my LHBS (Local Home Brew Shop) told me: 1) for ales, use the wet yeasts that are stored in the refrigerator, I use Safale, and 2) if you want some kick, add an extra pound of maltodextrin to a 5 gallon batch. My usual OG is 1.08, and the final is about 1.01. Enjoy your brew (and time with your son). If you wouldn't mind posting the 'also ran' names on your blog after the label is posted, I'd like to see some of the other ideas.

That does sound uncomfortable. It's too bad there isn't a 'Celebrity Off Duty' hat with blinking red lights that you could wear, kind of like the 'No Service' sign on a bus. However, I'm guessing even that wouldn't chase them off.

Go to, free register, Forums, Beginner's Beer Brewing forum, and read the 'Is My Beer Ruined Thread.' Some of the answers are hilarious. Based on your post, you're fine. Turns out you really need to mess up to ruin your beer, it may not be the strongest batch, but you can make up for it with your next one. Remember, RDWHAHB! (Relax, Don't Worry, Have A Home Brew!)

I've read off and on over the last few years, good story. Your dad's cousin was right, but I have to admit growing up in Cali leads to different fireworks stories, e.g., in Oklahoma we used to have Roman Candle fights.

I feel you, I've had my share of disappointments. Rating shipping carriers in order of preference. 1. FedEx--I've had the fewest screwups with them, but they happen. 2. UPS--They mess up more often, but better than... 3. USPS--Surprisingly, they will get your package there, but hardly on time. However, the worst is 4. DHL--I hate to write this because a friend's wife works there, but they have literally lost and never found my packages, and I have never had one show up on time. DHL = Dipshits Having Lunch...except for my friend's wife.
