I used Rock and Rye Whiskey for that purpose. It is a whiskey with hard sugar candy (rock candy) in it. Good cough suppressant though

I remember drinking a sip of kool-aid out of a watermelon when I was 15. It was really potent, especially after I added half a bottle of everclear.

No, what's terrible is pouring about a dozen shots of vodka and mixing a couple of straight shots of everclear in without telling anyone. You can always tell who loses that game of roulette

Guy: "Hey I had a concern with a Pilsner I'm brewing. It's been in the carboy for two weeks, and the airlock is only bubbling every couple of seconds."

Me: "What temperature are you fermenting at?"

Guy: "Well it's been around 65-70F the whole time. Also I'm using the Wyeast Northwest Ale Yeast."

Hmm.....alrighty! I did let him know to just take gravity readings for a few days and if it doesn't change it's good to go.

I invited a co-worker over to try one another's beers. He had a pilsner, but i knew he didn't have temperature control. Turns out he used US-05. Maybe I'm a stickler, but you can't call an ale a pilsner.
