I'm having a Dark-n-Stormy. That's Gosling's Black Seal rum and ginger beer. Might have another.

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.

Home brewed Beer. Always beer, every day....

Cup o coffe in the morning, water through the day at work, then beer, more beer and some beer before bed.

Weekends and holidays i skip the water.

Very rare to drink spirits. Very, very rare to drink soft drink.

Whisky, preferably malt scotch or malt mine.

Few beers, glass/s of wine with meals or any other excuse.

Growing up in QLD I had always thought that Bundy was rum and didn't like it. Then I met mine, I'm a new convert. Bundy should be sued for masquerading as rum (He says as he dons his flack jacket and kevlar helmet)

Oh, yeah water. Lots of to counter the effects of neat whisky.

I used to like beer a lot, then found it was keeping me awake. Turns out I can't sleep standing in front of toilet. LOL

I never drink before the evening meal.......well almost never. My typical evening is 3 shots of 95.6 cut with just enough diet 7up sweeten a bit and served over ice. Don't want too much liquid intake before bed time.

minime has learned the lesson of the ages: "You don't drink beer. You merely rent it."

What am I drinking? Sumpin with alkyhaul innit that I made in the shed. No pink umbrellas allowed. Ice is for pansies, and my wife. She's kinda a pansie. Don't tell her that or she'll kick your ass. Then shove that pink umbrella in there for good measure.

I only drink on special occasions. When I'm alone or when I'm with somebody. I never drink water. Fish fuck innit.

One martini is not enough. Two martinis is too many. Three martinis is just about right.

My current daytime drink is my Muntons Premium Irish Stout I also reuse the yeast lees to ferment malt extract for whisky. Midday it's coconut rum & freshly squeezed orange juice after dark it's whisky.
I like the stout refrigerated and served in chilled pewter goblets :oops:

I made some cocanut/pinapple rum for my brother, but forgot to bring it to him at christmas, so I ran it threw my stripping still, and now I can enjoy it without it being so damn sweet.

still not an Apletons, but it does taste decent, but for whatever reason, it makes the coke go flat very quick, compared to commercial.

I guess I'm going to have to find a local source for molasses in bulk.
