Now let's see what can be done with bourbon.
 
Where can I get a bottle of this? For testing purposes.


A few years ago, while developing the Model 1, Davis switched from whiskey to rum production. (Bags of sugar are easier to come by.) Lost Spirits Colonial American Inspired Rum, released in December 2014, was the first commercial product to fully undergo the Lost Spirits accelerated aging process, and the reviews were glowing (including one from this critic). Bottled at 62 percent alcohol, it’s a bracing, navy-strength rum with intense coffee, dried fruit, and chocolate notes, with a gentle smoky finish.

Colonial tastes a lot like very old, overproof rum—The Black Tot is often mentioned—which is of course the whole idea. The chromatograms that compare this rum to very old stock (like Port Mourant 33 Years Old) are uncannily similar. Spikes on both graphs show that both products contain significant doses of ethyl octanoate, ethyl propanoate, and isovaleraldehyde, among a dozen or so other compounds. Both spirits spike in the same places, though Colonial’s are often a bit smaller—an effect Davis chalks up to the limitations of his technique.

“It tops out after about 20 years,” he says. “If you let it keep running after that, things quickly go out of balance.” Davis says that’s because the Model 1 does not allow for any substantial evaporation: Put in 100 liters of white dog and you get back about 98 liters of aged spirit. Without the “angel’s share”—equating to about 50 percent evaporation in a 33 year old rum—it just doesn’t seem possible to push a spirit any further.
A distiller has come up with a method of producing spirits that taste like they've been aging in the barrel for 20 years, but his process only takes six days.

It sounds to me like he's annoying all the right people.

Fascinating.  I wonder how long before someone gets their hands on the source and opens this up to other brands and models.
Microsoft announced earlier today that it was collaborating with Xiaomi in providing Mi 4 customers with a flashable ROM that allows them to test Windows 10 for phones on their smartphones. It looks like that program is set for a wider rollout, according to a report on TechCrunch: Neither Microsoft nor Xiaomi provided specific details of the Windows 10 software being trialled, but...

Having been on both sides of this issue - student and faculty I would submit that the author is right on the mark.

This is some kind of parenting win: http://mashable.com/2015/03/18/bass-baby/
"Going back to Cali" are probably the only lyrics in "Going Back To Cali" appropriate for a toddler.

I asked my 4 year old son what he learned in Awanas tonight and he said "government steals your money!"

The lesson was actually about how the tax collectors would rip off the citizens (kinda like today), but I think I like his takeaway better.
