Default For those with vodka in the airlock..

Ever shoot it when you go to bottle?

I figured what the heck and too a swig from this airlock of my Belgian Dubbel... Fruity banana... Some other subtle weird flavors. Not to bad. It may become a habit....

This reminded me of a thread I saw on here before:

So you have some company.

On a side note in order for the vodka to kill germs it has to be over 120+ proof (60% alcohol)

I use starsan... so I do not taste it after fermentation :X

Hehe.. I actually use moonshine in mine.. I got tired of the starsan bubbling out the top of it all over the place when the initial fermentation starts taking off.

I won't shoot it, but can't say the idea of doing so didn't cross my mind.

Never considered it, and i go ahead and use whatever I'm drinking in there. Lately finlandia. I've used whiskey too but found the color disturbing.
