I'll tell you what Julie, you start getting into the single malts, and it is a whole complete new ball game, which far surpasses the wine tastings of the plebs ....

Got it in one. Founder Member is John, to whom applications for membership may be made now for 2013. Not sure about the secret handshakes :-))

By lunchtime here (less than 2hrs away) I'll have a 60L lager brew on the bubble. :D

Cheers.

By the way, single malts are also made in Canada and the US. After a lengthy legal battle, they are allowed to be called single malts - at least in Canada.

The term "rye" used to be reserved for whiskey made only from rye grain, but usually refers today to a blend of rye and other grains and even corn. From memory, there is a small whiskey distillery in Alberta that still makes 100 % rye. Buck for buck, I don't think you can beat this rye blend if that is the style you like.

Two observations: One, it is all a matter of taste which whiskey you like or don't like. Two, after about the fifth or sixth glass I can't tell the difference anyway.

Special note to the mods: all this whiskey discussion is clearly related to the original topic. The technical term for the low to mid alcohol liquid produced by the primary fermentation of the grain, before being distilled, is "brewer's beer". So there.

I first read that quickly, and thought you were going to have 60L for lunch. Good on you, if you can do that!

A person could wish I spose but in 5-6 days time I'll be filling 6 dozen 750ml bottles with the finished product then in about 9 months time I'll let you know how good they turned out. ;)

Cheers.

Julie I don't know if it's brewed near you or the UK called Vat 69? I'm not sure of the number but just asking.

Well, I wouldn't have thought that you could call whisky "brewed" as such, but VAT 69 in the UK usually refers to a brand of Scotch.

Indeed, Vat 69 is a blended Scotch whisky. Never heard of it before though.

I didn't know it came in beer form but I seen a movie once that this one guy was hung up on it during WWII and it was whisky.

Today's job for me is making up 30L of Ginger Beer (with a kick) and on Friday will be bottling 60L of Lager.

Cheers.
