Re: Does UJJSM classify as Bourbon (in terms of taste)?

Sassy Frass said, 'Taste better than most store bought bourbon, IMHO'

That's what I wanted to know.

Re: rifles

When I was young I had a .303 Lee Enfield with a sleeve for .22 small bore target shooting.
Also when I started in the CMF (our weekend warriors) they were using the Lee Enfield with that really long bayonet.

Re: Onion build for £50

I don't think a probe is important at all.
If you leave that out it will simplify your work a lot.

BTW that is a good idea, I will look out for these.

Re: Malting rye question

Well I have never done malting though I hope to one day. But it occurs to me that malting is usually done with the grain spread in the open. And at a suitable temperature range, and turned often, say with a shovel or a rake when you have a big lot. In a plastic bucket it would not be open to the air...

A rifle that is capable of hitting a coffee can with explosives in it at 500 - 2000 yards.

there were 3 matches every summer for that exact purpose. big boom big fun.

that tool is also capable of stopping a thief's car at roughly the same distances.
