Sounds good. Typically I like IPAs, but that makes me thirsty.

Hi Elmer.. Curious about the whisky bottle. Is that for drinking while you are bottling or for adding to the "Wee"? and how is your beer making progressing? Are you now 100% into brewing or do you still turn to wine /mead from time to time?

The scotch was just to drink to celebrate a good brew day.
I used whiskey & oak in a gallon but the scotch had too much smoke and peat.

I mostly make beer, but make an the occasional batch of lemon wine.
I am looking for a good Pinot Grigio kit or bucket.
