How is their sato? Haven't decided what I'm going to brew yet. I'd like to make stuff using local ingredients, if it can produce something enjoyable.

Interesting - my wife is from Thailand so I'll have to see if she is familiar with this. Her family lives in the Isan area (NE Thailand) and the folks in the rural villages have all kinds of concoctions they pass off for medicine (I'm sure some have legitimate uses but it's hard to tell the good from the bad). I lived there for a year, but never came across these brews.

Its great. Some times they add wild honey, bananas are a favourite and even things like lamyai work wery well.

I showed my wife the pictures last night, and her parents brew up the same tonics as you guys are making. They make bigger batches, since apparently my father in law drinks the stuff every day (that along with the Lao Khao and Red Bull drinks that he has with his friends. They would make Lao Khao drinks for me just to watch me cringe when drinking it... terrible stuff. Any health benefits they get from the tonics were likely destroyed immediately by drinking Lao Khao).
They would age out the tonics for 6 months and drink it while it's still kind of sweet. My wife liked to drink some of the tonics, but said a couple of them are pretty bad/bitter tasting.
Thanks for sharing the pics.
