    It's St. Patrick's Day so I'm gonna be sinking a good few pints of the dark stuff very soon.

    I love Lagunita's brews, all of their IPA's are on point.

    I'm a big fan of their "Censored" ale, which I haven't seen in quite a while...

    Never seen that one out in the wild yet, I'm going to keep an eye out for it though.
    But My favorite is the "little sumpin, sumpin ale"

    Been all over the Lagunitas map, that was my 1st one on a buddy’s rec and it’s still my fav too.

    I'm sure I've had that but I don't really remember it. I should try it again.

    Censored is a copper ale, maltier than anything else I've had from them but still plenty hopped (like everything they make). I also like their regular IPA. Wasn't a huge fan of the Brown Shugga though.

    You really should brother, it's just like their regular ale which is right behind the little sumpin, sumpin ale but somehow just improved upon. It's crispier, has more alcohol yet somehow tastes even better. Obviously with more hops because of crispy it seems.
    :cheers:
    I have to look up the Brown Shugga & Censored though, they sound super interesting. I can't imagine I'd dislike it because I love everything they brew. But I will say that reading the words brown sugar in the same sentence as beer already has me on edge, sounds risky.

    Picked up some Del Bac Dorado whiskey. Pretty good. I really like the mesquite smoke/chocolate vibes comes through strong. Pretty smooth and easy drinking for an american whiskey.

    I was expecting the Brown Shuggah to be malty like Censored or more so. Maybe the shock of it tasting basically like a citrusy IPA is what threw me. :lol: I think that one's seasonal.

    Next brew coming up pretty soon - we decided to do Mexican Cerveza this time for the summer, with some extra citrus hops and tequila essence to try to make it kinda like the Desperados beer. It's the first time we're trying these essence things, so we'll see how it goes. We decided to go with the essence instead of actual tequila, because it seemed less likely to interfere with the fermenting process, though we'll be adding it when bottling the stuff (there is still some post-fermenting going on at that point).
    Tested it with store-bought cerveza and it was actually pretty nice, but of course the essence doesn't increase the alcohol percentage which may have been preferable. IMO 5.2-5.5% is the optimal percentage for pretty much any beer.

    Ugh, I spent the whole night drinking beer and hobo wine and watching anime. Went to bed around 7am and just woke up (5pm). I still feel drunk as a skunk. :squint:

    Tried some cheaper whiskeys (Lonehand and Southshot) and they were awful, even mixed. Guess it's time to break out the ole water filter and run em through a few times.

    I have the rest of the week off from work so I bought some Italian red wine to knock me out so I hopefully can sleep for more than 6 hours since some asshole keeps revving their shitty car right under my window every night.

    sorry, not to sound ignorant here, but what does water filter change in cheap or harsh whiskey?

    I dont mind whiskey, but i dont like that kick that comes with some whiskey that makes you cough if you take a big swig. Would water filters get rid of that?

    Essentially tannins and other undesirable elements from the barrel aging process are usually a lot more up front with less filtered or younger whiskeys. Certain regions and their distilling process also greatly influences that harsher edge. Younger bourbons tend to be a lot harsher than other whiskeys ime.
    As whiskey matures it tends to mellow those harsher flavors and pick up subtle flavors from the wood of the barrel which help balance the overall profile. Really good multi stage charcoal filters helps trap harsher elements, which makes younger whiskey more palatable overall ime.
    Granted it can only do so much with bad whiskey. The process is better suited to taking mediocre whiskeys and smoothing them out ime.


    Think of it like how a burnt piece of meat gets that bitter quality, versus the smoky quality of a well cooked piece, but applied to a drink.

    interesting, i was not aware of this method to smooth it out a bit.
    guess its like a cheap wine through magic bullet to air it out. Supposedly it helps, but i have yet to taste the difference.

    Free Dive & Unholy are pretty good. Going to wait 3 more weeks to pick up the other two because I'm into these.

    I bought a bunch of interesting craft beers that I'm planning on drinking on May Day. The least exciting ones are just IPA's I haven't tasted yet, but then I also bought some really weird ones including a Mango Chili beer, a Bloody Mary beer and Peanut Butter Chocolate Stout :lol:

    Has brewing gone too far?!

    I say, yes. :lol: Nothing beats a good old crispy clean lager.
