Hey everyone,
What's the go with sending homebrew form NZ to Ozzie? Is there any issues with customs etc? I have a mate I want to send some beers to, but not sure they will ever get to him.

Cheers
Ivan

aww man.. just wrote an epic long reply and my internet dropped out lol ... I've received beer from NZ Paul Wicksteed sent me a couple no issues. Pack them really well, individually bubble wrap each bottle and seal each in a ziplock sandwich bag so if one leaks it's contained. Then pack them well inside a box, less you can hear things splashing around the better, its inevitable that you will but.. and mark them as yeast samples. Beer will bring taxes, it wont be much but still.. and you arent lying with yeast samples, but will dodge taxes. I think the best bottles are those small 330ml brown PET bottles you get in NZ, we can't easily get them here. Cheers mate!

Awesome, thanks Gash. I hate when that happens.
Yeah I was thinking those bottles would be best. Cheers for the yeast sample tip, the tax man gets enough $$.
Cheers mate :)

Bottled my Scottish ale and all went very well, washed 2 jars of yeast and that looks good too. Brew day tomorrow just preparing the liquor now. Was a bit worried about doing the yeast thing again but decided to get back on the pony and move forward. :D

Hi Paul, Ive posted a new post topic about Mauribrew yeast but seems to be Lager, Wheat and Engish style. :D

Hi Paul, a quick google tells me that its a bakers yeast. I honestly dont know if its suitable for brewing or what strain. Will try and find out, good question though, cheers. :D

Have you ever used Mauri yeast? Is it like an English or American ale yeast?
