    Always entertaining, mildly offensive
    IANative: Indeed, when you grab Brent (or he grabs you), it feels like liquid unobtanium wrapped in rawhide... whereas Greg is just solid muscle wrapped in hate, seasoned w/ snuff and a little lead.

    Not sure , so I will pose the question , do grapes get sweeter after a frost ? I read a while back that the grapes used for Ice Wine are that ; grapes that have been picked right after the first frost.
    Seems like common sense that the grapes would be sweeter staying on the vine a tad longer anyway.

    I think I just read the opposite. The colder weather makes them more bitter. Don't know but I just read that in a book on gardening last night.

    The freeze crystalizes some of the water, making the sugar in the grapes more concentrated. So it generally has a fair bit of residual sugar in the final product. Needs acidity to taste balanced, but when good is amazing.

    I can only drink the sweeter ones, but they give me a hangover.... I would rather drink mixed drinks, give me a better buzz...

    Non-distilled alcohols give me hang overs Im not a fan of. Got to the point where only 2 beers would give me a piercing headache. Ive never been a lover of wines; havent found one yet I like and, tbh, at 60 stones for a 375, I probably never will.

    I have, however, recently discovered Japanese whiskey. Nikka brand 'Black' is quite good. Kind of a medium peatiness, 45% but smmoooooooooooootth.
