Almost Purple Haze

I have almost cloned Purple Haze. Wa-ha-ha. The picture here shows my very own raspberry wheat concoction. (I couldn't help but drink it down an inch or so before taking the picture). The glassware was courtesy of a Pazzo's pint night some time back (you get a free glass from whatever beer is on special), hence, when Abita Purple Haze was the special one night, we nabbed a pair of Abita glasses.

For full disclosure, my raspberry wheat recipe needs to cut back about half of the raspberries and needs maybe a little more wheat character before I can more closely approximate my goal. Also, it seems a little dark here, but I think some of that is the lighting in the picture.

Can't go wrong with that. Now I wonder if you have any friends that can help with the creation of something even better then beer.

Whiskey is the one true drink.

Looks great! Grain + extract?

Welcome to the dark side. I've been brewing up a storm this year. Need to take more pictures.

As to whiskey...

Distilling may be illegal. Even in Kentucky. However, if you're interested, I can get a killer moonshine recipe from my Arkansas relatives.

Yeah, grain and extract together. I don't have the time to brew all-grain. I can barely put this together.

Unfortunately, even in Kentucky distilling is illegal without a distilling license, which I think is relatively hard to get. On the otherhand, unless one advertises, how would they find out?
