I move that since O'Douls is made from barley it does count.  

Chicken feed is made from barley, does it count?

Let's not get carried away... :rolleyes:  

Just trying not to discriminate against those who choose not to drink for whatever reason.  At that point in time I was on the wagon for medical reasons which have happily passed, so the beer is flowing once more.:lol:

OK, good.  Alan is back in, and O'Douls and chicken feed are back out. :lol:

Beer gives strength and whisky inspires! That's why I drink them both :D If I want to get carried in the middle age, I drink a dram of Lagavulin!

Nice.  I'm more of a peat head myself...

I'm not much into such heavily peated malt. Well, the only Laphroaig I ever drank was a bottle of Quarter Cask I bought a while ago. This one is probably better. I absolutely love Lagavulin 16 years though! My all time favorite Islay.

I think Laphroaig 10 is only slightly smokier than Lagavulin 16, and less agressive overall so you may like it.  I've never had the quarter cask.

Lagavulin is one of my favorites as well :)

Finally a topic I can speak to....I've been brewing beer for 20 some odd years now and have only started swinging a hammer in the last 8 months.  I've got to admit the more hop headed I get the easier it is to swing the hammer and the less concerned I am with errors.  It just flows...beer, steel and the trips to the closet tree!
