Announcement   After years of playing with dewar flasks and other scientific glassware in my bar and kitchen, I got enough people asking if I could make some of the more interesting things for them. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Everyone needs a bit more mad science in their life!

Beer is meant to be consumed at the temperature it comes off the tap. As the weather warms up, you want your beer to be at its coldest to the last drop and a Stein of Science is the way to keep it there.

For simplicity, the preferred payment method I accept is Paypal. Checks and money orders are accepted but will have to clear before I can ship. All items are sent insured to make sure the steins arrive in one piece and that I can easily replace the item if they break it.

If you are local to me in the SF Bay Area, it is possible that we can arrange a hand off.

To answer a few questions off the bat:

1) The Steins Of Science Are Built With New Dewars - I could save a buck by using used dewars but I won't. Don't trust any used labware because you don't know what's been done to it or, more importantly, around it because you are now intending to use it with food.
2) Dewar Flasks Are Scientific Glassware - This, obviously, is not the use for which dewars were originally intended. They are delicate scientific apparatus and should be treated kindly. They are prone to shattering in a spectacular manner due to the vacuum should they break. One reason I use full aluminum shield dewars is to protect you in the event the worst should happen.
3) The Steins Of Science Are Not Dishwasher Safe - Handwashing is the name of the game. Putting it in the dishwasher may break the dewar.
4) The Steins Of Science Are Not Microwave Safe - With as much metal as this stein has, it will destroy your microwave and leave interesting scorch marks all over your stein.
5) Handedness - This is a matter of how I do the facing of the worm gear on the straps for aesthetic pleasure. A gear clonking your lower lip when you sip is no fun and should be placed accordingly.

I welcome all proponents of Scientific Drinking to come visit me at the Funranium Labs website, www.funraniumlabs.com, to see the steins in action and other experiments in progress or follow on Facebook; just search for the Funranium Labs page.

NOTE: The Black Blood of the Earth is not available here for shipment. See the "Coffee News" on www.funraniumlabs.com for more details.

Super fast shipping. Test 1: Filled with ice and sealed lid. Waited 24 hours. No ice left but still very cold water. :)

This thing is... amazing! A pint rum-and-coke (only two ounces of which was ice) stayed brain-bitingly cold for well over 3 hours!

Funranium Labs believes in improving your life through the application of More Awesome. This is best achieved through hyper-caffination and the liberal application of delicious spirits. In particular, beer was given to you at a certain temperature because and it should STAY THERE. And thus, the Steins of Science...

Shipping
Shipping is already included in the price for the US and Canada for the 665ml through 1000ml steins. The 1900ml and 4300ml have additional shipping due to weight.

International shipping is available. Please pay close attention to your region as rates may vary stein to stein. Customs will be paid by the buyer on receipt.

All items are sent via UPS, FedEx, or USPS ground insured to make sure the steins arrive in one piece and that I can easily replace the item if they break it. If you wish it to ship faster, please contact me so I can go do the calcs for what extra charges may apply (in the US & Canada, typically $30 extra for 3-day, $70 for overnight). Tracking confirmation numbers will be sent via Etsy Conversation as soon as they are available.
Refunds and Exchanges
I do accept returns within 7 days of delivery for full refund, minus a $10 restocking fee. It needs to be sent back to me via UPS insured to make sure that if it breaks in shipment that they take responsibility for it, not you.

If the item arrives damaged, please notify me immediately so that I may file a claim with UPS and get a new stein out to you ASAP.
Additional policies and FAQs
The Steins of Science are constructed using a scientific grade benchtop dewar flask and using them as drinkware is most definitely not their original intended purpose. Dewars are made with two layers of silvered glass and a very high vacuum in the space between them, which is what gives the excellent thermal properties. In the event of breakage, they can shatter and implode due to the vacuum. By your purchase, you acknowledge your understanding of this and release Funranium Labs and the original dewar manufacturer from responsibility for any damage or injury due to breakage.
