Cocktail hour in the Giant City Lodge. I’ve got a Galaxy IPA from Big Muddy Brewing. @jackieLbrewer has a fancy Brooklyn with Minor Case Rye.
Just our second Whiskey Wednesday since the start of the pandemic. I have the Whistlepig Farmstock Bourbon bottled in bond. Very nice. Sweet. Fruit—maybe apples. @jackieLbrewer has the equivalent rye.
Today’s bread: 2 c Bubbles (our sourdough starter); ¼ tsp each salt, acidic acid, citric acid; ¾ tsp diastatic malt powder; 1 T olive oil; 2 T local wildflower honey; ⅓ c each rye, semolina, spelt, barley flour, quick oats; 1 c bread flour; 1⅓ c whole wheat.
For the past few days I’ve been drinking bourbon and branch water (i.e. tap water from the Mahamet aquifer). Today though @jackieLbrewer wanted her manhattan with @mrivrdistilling’s Cody Road rye. It’s so yummy I’m drinking it neat.
Both @jackieLbrewer and I are drinking the @SevenSaints feature, the Barrell Dovetail, an exquisite bourbon/rye blend. Delicious at cask strength.
