Hello from Ottawa

Post by cerevisiae » Thu Sep 24, 2020 2:25 pm

Hello,

Came here as it seems to be the online mecca for anything to do with distilling.

Completing my double major in biochemistry and chemical engineering and plan on working in the industry.

I am here to soak up as much knowledge as possible and maybe one day contribute. I am also here to learn from my mistakes and hopefully I get the opportunity to receive valuable advice.

I have a lot of experience with fermented products.

Greetings!

Welcome, sounds like a great background you will find a lot of valuable information on the forum from people that have experience from doing.

Howdy! I lived in Ottawa for a while, about 35 years ago. I wonder if the Royal Oak is still there on Bank st? I worked there and had an apartment over on O'Conner at Gilmour.

Now that you have done your hello, start up a thread and tell us what you are doing.

Hey cerevisiae, Welcome to HD!

Toronto here, in fact plenty of other Canadians who make up the members :) My favorite cooper is in Ottawa actually.

Read lots, have fun and play safe!

I lived in Ottawa years ago, made a lot of shine there 2009-2014. Then went legit collaborating with North of 7 on St Laurent.

I'm surprised to hear there is a cooper. What's his name?

mmm biochemistry and chemical engineering.... This forum can always use a little more scientific method. Welcome to the fray from Winterpeg.
