Default 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.

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