Thankfully all three daughters yelled, and caught her before the beersplosion. Also thankful that it wasn't my house.
Yeah, it's like a Snapple.

When it comes to the MIL, I let her do whatever she feels like. Its safer that way. The SWMBO had her pour it in a glass though.

Something from last night: someone asked about getting a starter kit for their wife for Christmas on Jalopnik (car blog). A couple of people began telling him to get a big pot and that he wouldn't be able to use his electric stove. It was as if everyone was telling him to dive right in. Personally I thought it was funny because I think beginners should make the minimum investment until they are sure they want to continue doing it.

This would be even funnier if he was actually asking about a car starter ;-)

Working at the LHBS this past weekend....

Gentleman: "Yeah I remember making a blackberry mead a few months back. It was really potent, especially after I added half a bottle of everclear."

Me: "Sounds good."

Sarcasm much?

What's funny is that he felt the need to make Mead more potent. I got a 6-pack from a friend last Christmas and 12ozs would make my whole face numb!

I remember this empty glass I had a few months back. It was really potent, especially after I added half a bottle of everclear."
