Re: Rye bread whiskey taste

Were you able to find the correct black German rye bread? Aldi's German pumpernickel produces a fine drop.

Re: Carnivore Lifestyle & Cancer

Dr. Berry's advice has me feel good for the first time in years. Knees and back are sooo much better. Eating once daily, no grain, sugar or starch. Carnivore maybe next.

Every time this happens anywhere on this planet it makes harder to dispel the nasty myths entangled with the long tradition of home distilling spirits for personal consumption.
