I just had a baby and I thought that a beer or a wine kept from the year of birth until the 19th birthday would be pretty neat. Just not sure how feasable this actually is. Obviously the abv would have to be high (tnp?). Anyone have some ideas or experience? Thanks

i gotta say, for 19 years, that is a long long time....i vote with whiskey, but it takes 4 to 6 generations of a good sour mash to get things tasting where you want them to taste.....or so i'm told........

Why not just go with an ultra strong barely wine like the Brits used to?

That way you don't have Big Brother knockin on your door, too...

Don't do a beer. I busted open a 24 year old stout recently and it tasted like sherry / soy sauce. Beer succumbs to oxidation over time.

Maybe a fat mead or red wine. Buy a good cabernet kit from northern brewer.
