Boom, your whiskey is great and I can't wait to do a tour of the distillery and buy a bottle. Keep us posted on where it will be available first.

Yup that was mine. It was ginger brandy with pears as the base.

I sure would love a couple fingers...I never got to try the white dog, real bummed about that.

I didn't get to try much the second day. Had me a couple winds throughout the day, but mostly I was just recovering from an amazing Friday night. Truth be told, I don't drink all that much, considering what brings us all together...just one drink a night, 2 on the weekend. So when we stayed up and got blasted, and THEN killed an entire bottle, I felt that night for 2 straight days. Just now got back to the whiskey as we speak. So, sorry to all if I wasn't chipper and as sociable as I usually might be. I had to take the nap. And the early bed time. I'm fuckin old, I suppose.

I did have a real good time, though. It was an honor to spend the weekend with such fine people. I never worry about the quality of drink to be had. Honestly, as these are the first meetings in the course of UN-prohibition, they have to be the most extensive variety of top notch whiskey ever on one table.

Thank you Jed for showing me around the local town, and for introducing me to Amish baked goods. Really good thing I don't live closer. Dangerous.

It was a pleasure to see you again, rager, Randy, and mch. Absinthe night take 2. Boom-Thanks for kicking it up a notch.

Vrock, big Bob, hermit, tb, panicky... thank you for allowing me to know you. Damn fine folks. I hope to see you again soon.

Thank you to all the guest that came. There really is no other place like it than in the company of those on this forum.

I needed this weekend. Alot. Thanks for making it happen.

Shine I had the same problem, I'm pretty much same as you. One drink a night, then thrown into that cornucopia of booze !
I did not recover untill the trip home! Sure was fun though! :moresarcasm: also enjoyed meeting you and the rest of the east coast contingent.

Even a blind hog will find an acorn once in a while .
VAROCKETRY beat me hands down with his oaked UJ . That patience we preach pays off .

>Nobody commented on the blackberry I brought . Was there something wrong with it or did nobody there like 'sissy' drinks ?
>Randy and all the others that gave me take home samples : I'm saving them until we can go see GAFLATWOODS . I just want to show him what he missed by being skeered of crossing the Mason/Dixon line . I did it and it ain't going to change the way I vote .

Don't sell yourself short Butch , that white dog was very very good. I never got the chance to try the blackberry due to over indulging on Friday night, for that I apoligize. I'll send you a pm with my #s.

Well, folks, now I aint no drinking man, I told you folks that before, so imagine my surprise on Friday night when those guys hog tied me to that table and started tossing back those shots. Why hell, some of the finest sipping whiskey in 5 states was being tossed about like a chearleaders undies. What surprised me most was how well behaved you folks were. Now ol Jed, he's a trooper, hung right in there till I could barely walk, then got up next day and cooked for nearly 40 people. Just don't make um like that anymore - thanks Jed. :clap: :clap: :clap:

My oppology to anyone who's hooch I didn't get too, but come Saturday, I really had had enough to drink. Some of you may have noticed. So I sort of coasted through the day, hoping I'd recover enough to eat something and drive home. The Lady Di, being like she is, was very gracious and to this day has not said a word. But I'm not very proud of myself.

All I can say is, I had a really great time. Drank way more than I can remember I ever had before in my life in one day, and woke up feeling like I was out of focus - but had no headache. I know I tossed that bottle, sorry for that fellas, I must have thought it was a cat, maybe? :moresarcasm:

Anyway, you are all great guys, and I'd be proud to have anyone or all of you come visit our distillery anytime. Only, we aint gonna do that Friday night business that way no more. I just cant. I'm an old man, and that kinda drinking is just way too tough on my disposition! Well, maybe once more, maybe....

But boy, did I have a good time! Thanks all, and display those bumber stickers proudly! Uncle Lum's coming soon to a town near you! :thumbup:

TB the blackberry was very good. I normally steer clear of fruit flavored drinks because they go down too easy... anything I can pour over a pint glass of ice and drink in less than 5 minutes is dangerous to me. Your aged UJSM is great too, but they fell in the shadow of that white dog. I've just never tasted a white dog that stood up to aged whiskey. I normally think white dog sucks.... like a bad vodka or something. I just hadn't had a good one yet.

Ginger-pear brandy... that's what it was! Boy, was that stuff tasty.

Now I just have to find some Amish folks to make doughnuts for me. They'd go with this cup of coffee real nice.

Be glad to provide a Boston Butt or two off my smoker as TB is less than two hours from Casa de Hermit. Darn thing will still be hot if I throw it in the cooler wrapped in a blanket.

New keg with a 6 inch ferrule up top is just about done. Will be able to use both electric or steam when done but $$$$$ is tight right now to score the remaining parts.

TB I'm not sure where your at in those mountains but I can get to a lot of WVA in about a 4-6 hour drive. I say start a thread about it. Depending on where and when....I might be able to pull that one off.
But what the heck do I know.....I am still learning.

Would love to have someone have a get together in the Deep South. Central Georgia maybe. Living in south Florida it's a long way to anywhere from here. Sounds like there is plenty of pork at these events, how about some gator for a switch up?

Judging solely by the number of attendees and the tempo of the well behaved participants at last weeks Jedfest I'll go out on a limb and say there's ample room in the general area surrounding TBs physical dwelling. It's a very comfortable setting.

In the event of a ruckas, participants may be banished by the resident SOH to the barn which is fair step or two away. Just kidding of course.

Bring a camp chair or two.

For those of you who enjoyed my walnut brandy, I have updated the recipe thread where I got the idea:
viewtopic.php?f=11&t=31092
It is an easy maceration and I just followed the recipe Odin posted to the letter. Super easy to make and a unique spirit for sure.

I did. By green, he means young, immature. They are from a black walnut tree, the husks were green. He may have suggested a european walnut, but I used young walnuts from my good ol' American black walnut tree.
I had to knock them out of the tree when they were just a little smaller than golf balls, near the end of June. They cut easily, husk and all, and start to discolor the second they are picked.

gotta say that i think the best part of these meet up is being able to put a face to a name. the meeting of completely random people, coming together with a common interest is whats so awesome to me. now when i read posts from members ive met it becomes just a bit more personal. the more people you meet in this community , the more this community unites.

just sayin, its awesome.
