Peter, that's what I concluded. It's all a matter of context, time, and the value of "hobbies". Before my kids were born, I had the time for hobbies, and felt fulfilled by making beer. Now, time is more precious, and I don't feel like I need more "interests" than I have.

Plus, I have a better job and I drink less, so I can afford to buy what is satisfying. But I have two really nice, big brewkettles, about 6 pop kegs and other crap in my garage that I can't seem to bear the thought if getting rid of.

I've got 4 year old hops and barley, Tom. You got any older than that?

looks as though the beer talk has run its course, but i have seen some mention of alcohol. if you are into sippin' whiskey, take a shot at KNOB CREEK.. it is super smooth, with just a sweet hint of maple. started drinking it about a year ago and never looked back. dont insult it by mixing it with coke, just slow sip it. very good stuff.

I've never had a maple flavoured whiskey but i have tried a maple liquer made right here in Canada.
It was...ummm. .. a tad sweet.

BigJohn, ever try Blanton's? That is my personal favorite (mixed with grape KoolAid, of course).

Okay, just for the record, the beer thread may have "lulls", but it will never, ever "run its course".

BigWill's right about the Blanton's. I've only had it once, but it was memorable. I don't like Knob Creek enough to pay 50% more for it than I pay for Maker's Mark. I liked Booker's a lot, but I can't afford it at all.

But EVERYBODY knows that the best mixer for premium bourbon is Purple Gatorade. Sheesh.

I honestly don't know if I still have any hops in the freezer. They'd be about that vintage, though. The malt is long gone. I understand that Lambics use "aged" hops.

My wife would kill me if I mixed my premium bourbon with purple gatorade... I don't remember the name offhand, but it's absolutely fantastic stuff. I'll post it when I get home.

Since the discussion is taking a bourbon direction, I'll mention Jack Daniel's in passing. It's just right for the sitting on the deck after golf and sipping, mixed only with ice. With that in mind, I recently ran across Jack's new, older brother - Gentleman Jack. It's charcoal filtered a second time and aged another couple of years.

Smooth is such feeble word to approximate it's contact with your mouth. Almost none of it gets down your throat, rather it evaporates on your tongue and lingers like a soft Kentucky night in August. It's like a fine liqueur with an attitude. It's also damned expensive.

Here we are... it's Black Maple Hill Premium Single Barrel Bourbon, aged 16 years. Fantastic stuff. Mind you, I've never had bourbon before this, other than Jack Daniels, which I didn't like (Side note: According to one website is not bourbon, due to the manufacturing process or something. No offense meant.) It's almost like congnac in its tendancy to evaporate in your mouth, similar to Ray3's posting about Gentleman Jack. Great stuff.
