making fine spirits by bob zymurgy

Read a good book? Any topic is a good one. If it is about moonshine of other spirits, beer, or wine then that is a bonus.

It's true. The Bob family originally came to the US from Liechtenstein. My given name was the family name of my mother, Helen Bach Zymurgy. I'm the black sheep of the family, at least as far as my brother Plum and my sister Apple are concerned.

You can make whisky in a reflux still, you can make vodka in a potstill,

Reminds me of a Lebanese geotechnical engineer I used to work with named Raad Raad (sounds like rod rod). We used to joke that he was the youngest of a dozen siblings. His sisters and brothers were named Curtain, Fishing, Lightning, Hot, Push, Piston, Spare The, ... When Raad was born they had run out of names, so he is plain ole Raad Raad...

Like the Zarzoff brothers? Burney, Bluey, Shotty etc.

We had a Sri Lankan engineer at work called Tilag. He didn't take kindly to the aussie nickname tradition and would get very upset if he was called Tea Bag in earshot. :roflmao: :mg:

Sorry bobrun. I've been binge-watching Sherlock on Netflix and couldn't resist. (Just finished S2E2).

I thought the Italian one from Pisa was good too. She has a sister named Ilene...
