I certainly shouldn't have left Independence in July.

Distill safe. Make good cuts. Enjoy yourself. Give as much as you take. Have fun doing this incredibly hard work. Be a good example. It's your hobby.

I have been thing of things to add such as hydrometers, other brand enzymes and maybe strainers.

Sorry to hear about the bubble bursting...likely a cyclical thing.

That being the case, (presumably) you should be able to get more $ for your initial contract. Otherwise, nobody will be there to support them at the point it is critical. Anyway, I'm sure you are tired of that tired argument.

I'm thinking enzymes, barrels, bottles, labels, cork/caps, etc are all a market. It took me several months to find a printer for custom labels, etc.

God bless during this season, and I'm hopeful a new contract or 2 can turn it around for your team member.
