Too Strange.. even for me
 
I had taken a 15 year break in home brewing, and last weekend I brewed a batch and put it into 5 gals in the carboy. I was planning on doing another batch this weekend so, I went to the attic to retrieve my 2nd carboy to clean and sanitize it. When in the attic I decided to take a look at my cases of bar bottles. In one of the boxes I opened to find this.

FIND A

FIND B

15 years to the day. Now that is STRANGE

I put 2 in the beverage cooler and after dinner I will give them a taste. "What do kill ya makes us strong", Right?

Anyway wish me luck. It had to be a sign.......

BTW..Check out those High Tech labels that I got there....cool huh?

Nope. If it kills ya then your pretty much dead.

But with this, worste case is a bad taste in your mouth.

Part of me hopes that it tastes like skunk pee instead of ambrosia so I'm not tempted to duplicate your aging process :p

Wait... I do still have my old log book.

In the fermenter at 1.035
Bottled at 1.018 on 9/18/94

..and that why we keep records, right?

This batch that was bottled is older than my 1st born (Freshman in High School).
