18 This one's real:

If you're driving a rental and you've forgotten where the gas filler is, just look at the fuel gauge. If you can see it, that means you're inside the car, and most modern cars have the filler on the outside of the car.

Posted by: hogmartin at July 24, 2020 10:00 PM (t+qrx)

19 The shopping cart grill: if it looks stupid but it works, its not stupid.

Having worked at a grocery store and gone around to re-collect carts from the neighborhood, I swear people were using the carts for stuff like that. Those buggers are expensive, not cheap to replace. Walking off with one just makes your food cost more next time.

24 I have been inspired by this ONT. I will use hand sanitizer made of hydrofluoric acid, use Mobil 1 as a cooking oil, prepare stewed kerosene in my pressure cooker, and devote my future kitchen efforts to duplicating all of Taco Bell's recipes.

25 Vaguely half-remember a story about how some foreign aid to a west African country in the 50s included some housing and contruction materials. A toilet seat ended up being used as a picture frame for the portrait of whichever blood-stained thief, er, sorry, "independence" movement leader and now president-for-life's was looting, er, governing the country at that time.

Seemed amusing.

Yeah that was always such a stupid lie, but it sounded plausible. Like granny is buying tinned meat if she's that poor to begin with, and tuna is half the price of cat food.

Which if you think about it is crazy.

Unless, like Seattle and Portland the police are not allowed to use crowd control devices.

78 From last thread--
Sundance has a pretty good handle on the whole coup, and has from the very beginning (so does jackstraw)
He
would figure out that the only reason a phrase was
classified in a document was because it would embarrass the FBI, and
the next day, Barr would order the phrase unclassified (this actually
happened)
As i mentioned, Sidney Powell posts there occasionally,
she's probably the only other person who really understands exactly what
happened, and is pissed, instead of in cover-up mode.
Lately,
Sundance has been hinting of big doings, happening soon. But so has Q.
Meanwhile, it does seem like things are heating up.
Cautiously optimistic.

My present from my folks going to grad school was a 4 pound bag of rice. I still do not cook it myself to this day. I have known poverty.

The worst was going to the local student church for a Sunday meal. I had to participate in a presidential debate. I had to defend Jimmy Carter vs Reagan. And I did a great job. I still SMH at that.

Man I was hungry, and the mashed potatoes were so filling. I guess I sang for my supper.

Updated for 2020 - there is a UooToob vid of a guy in a Tesla pulled up to a self-serve gas pump.

272 ..hey Jim SND: are you ready/far enough away from the beach for the projected storm surge?

Posted by: redc1c4 at July 24, 2020 10:29 PM (TZU1B)



I've tied a 10 lb. mushroom anchor to one of the house's pilings. And duct taped a pair of water wings to the gun-safe. That oughta help, I think.

Seriously though? I'm about 225 miles to the East of where the storm is slated to make landfall.

It'll be a helluva rainmaker here, and the tide might be about 4 ft. above normal. Land my house sits on is 5 ft. above sea level.

I don't think this one is the "worry" one. But thanks for asking!

286 Today China finally admitted that the Three Gorges Dam has been "deformed" by recent torrential rain (after denying it for weeks):

TAIPEI (Taiwan News) -- China on Saturday (July 1 reported that the vaunted Three Gorges Dam experienced "displacement, seepage, and deformation" as it was hit with the "No. 2 Flood" of the year but that these were within "the normal range."

https://tinyurl.com/yyyhjmmu

The government is desperately releasing water through the spillways but still denies that there is a problem. It claims that the deformations don't affect critical parts of the dam.

Satellite photos confirm that the deformation only affects the parts of the dam that hold back, you know, THE WATER.

This is another Chicom disaster in the making. Several cities with populations in excess of 10 million will be wiped out if the dam fails. Wuhan, of bat flu fame, will be the first big city to go.

This should be an interesting week.

Couldn't get in the indoor range today - too long a wait.

So dropped by the ammo store (really just an ammo store) - they said, to their surprise, there has been a "third" wave of intense buying this past week. First wave: C19 crisis atmosphere (real one, not current factitious one); then, of course, the civics and racial understanding festival of May/June; now ..... they're guessing just CA's idiotic panic-mongering, and the mask idiocy.

Tragically I never bought even symbolic little stakes in Ruger or Olin or a few others that I thought about doing right after the CT shooting. Hmm.

Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at July 24, 2020 10:34 PM (KZzsI)


Terrible idea. They have protocols that just might save you. If you wanna kill yourself, plan better than a hospital setting.

I do want to make a point though. It involves a supposition of mine -- Most adults have at least contemplated suicide. That does not mean PLANNING suicide, merely that they have thought about it and which way they would prefer to 'check out'.

Sometimes life gets you down, sometimes you try and figure out your options, most times that would be an option. Not a great option, but hey, you are considering options.

Or maybe it is just an intellectual self-exercise in planning for possible really bad futures. Whatever.

You've given it a thought cycle or 20. As Crowder sez, prove me wrong.

Certainly it used to be a crime to try this, but not any longer. It may, depending on the state or country, even be codified into law.

I'm really curious what the settlement amount was from the Bezos Gazette and Nick Sandmann, the Kentucky Catholic HS kid.

The original suit was for $250 million.

The WAPO representative was very nice and prim and proper in her announcement.

Guessing it was for something in the middle, because if the WAPO person was snotty, the Kid's lawyers would have just said pound sand and gone back for more.

And the Kid's lawyer said "2 down, 6 to go".

Wonder if any Progda news outlet even reported it. Doubt it.

The Windy map, is still showing 2-3 feet of rain to fall north west of the upper drainage area with in a ten day period.

Normal dam levels this time of year are around 150m. This July they are averaging close to 160m.

175m is a normal maximum for 3G, 185.5 is over the top of the dam.

More than anything else is the fact that they can't grow or harvest anything downstream of 3G due to the flooding.

These are floods like they haven't seen since the 40's.

One of the things that pisses me off are the complaints that the Portland and Fed cops are arresting and gassing "journalists". The mayor has complained about this.

Guess what - all the "journalists" at the riots are pro-Antifa, because any identifiable anti-Antifa journalist gets attacked and beaten by the mob. This has happened several times recently.

Until journalists who aren't cheerleaders for Antifa are allowed at the riots, cry me a river.

First Amendment loses again-

"A divided Supreme Court on Friday night turned down a request by a Nevada church for permission to hold services on the same terms that other facilities in the state, including casinos, are allowed to hold gatherings during the COVID-19 pandemic. Chief Justice John Roberts joined the court’s more liberal justices in denying the plea from Calvary Chapel Dayton Valley, a Christian church located about 15 miles outside the state’s capital, Carson City. The ruling drew sharp dissents from the court’s more conservative justices, with Justice Samuel Alito writing that although the “Constitution guarantees the free exercise of religion,” it “says nothing about the freedom to play craps or blackjack.”

It's a bad book: boring, trite, spiteful, unimaginative, derivative. Miller does not know how to let the dialogue and action convey the story: he has to write long, pedantic passages outside of the drama proper in order to make the story intelligible, even in his own opinion.

And to imagine this was 1949: four years after their sacrifices, the troops came home to this? I don't know if he was a communist party member or a fellow traveller, or just full of hate for those who made the sacrifice that he did not and felt ashamed, or he was just a vulgar little moneymaker who knew what the critics (probably his friends) would promote; but something is wrong with Miller and his shoddy dinky commercial period piece.

Satellite photos confirm that the deformation only affects the parts of the dam that hold back, you know, THE WATER.

This is another Chicom disaster in the making. Several cities with populations in excess of 10 million will be wiped out if the dam fails. Wuhan, of bat flu fame, will be the first big city to go.

This should be an interesting week.

From what I have read, which frankly isn't a whole hell of a lot, is downstream from 3 Ganges is much of industrial China, where a lot of goods are manufactured for shipment to the USA. Things such as common pharmaceuticals that Big Pharma shut down production in the west and moved to China, many years ago.

So if that dam fails, hope you are stocked up on common medicines.

429 It's attention getting. These thugs have the emotional development of 2 year olds having tantrums. That's all it is.

Also, you deny young people a social outlet for months, and then announce that they can hang out together in large groups - but only if they engage in approved protesting.

The Portland riots would be far smaller if there were other approved forms of mass social interaction.

431 Morticia - your post re: Roberts redeeming himself is very confusing. You linked to the dissenting opinions of Alito and Kavanaugh, not the majority opinion which includes Roberts. I think what happened is that there was an application for injunctive relief made to Kagan (these applications are geographical; they didn't choose to submit it Kagan - she's essentially the geographical clerk in this regard) and the Court denied it 5-4 without a majority opinion since they were not determining a legal issue but simply whether to grant some kind of injunctive relief -- I don't know the procedural posture of the case.

Anyways, Alito, Kav, and Thomas dissented with explanation (hence an opinion). This does happen from time to time, usually with a dissenting opinion from denial of certiorari. There's a semi-famous such opinion by Rehnquist in 1983 dissenting from denial of cert in a land use takings case ("Fresh Pond Shopping Center") which ended up helping pave the way for California's infamous Government Code section 7060 et seq. (If I got a license plate that says "GC7060" my car would be destroyed.)

444 It's a bad book: boring, trite, spiteful, unimaginative, derivative. Miller does not know how to let the dialogue and action convey the story: he has to write long, pedantic passages outside of the drama proper in order to make the story intelligible, even in his own opinion.

Mentioning Arthur Miller brings to mind Marilyn Monroe, and here's a story:

Miller and Monroe had met in 1951 and had a brief affair, but always kept in touch. By 1956, Miller had left his wife and wanted to marry the blonde bombshell, so he brought her back home to Brooklyn to meet his parents.

Miller's parents had been wealthy, but lost their money in the Crash of 1929, so they were living in what they called a "cold water flat," a place in an apartment building that had no hot running water.

Marilyn and Miller's parents got along famously, the elder Millers finding her sweet and charming, she finding them friendly and welcoming. Plates of food and bottles of drink were piled onto the table, and after a while, nature called and Marilyn excused herself to go to the bathroom.

Once there, she realized to her horror that the walls of the apartment were so thin that she could hear the Millers talking and they, she was sure, would hear her. So she turned on the sink and bathtub faucets full blast and did her business.

A few days later, Miller asked his mother what she thought of the Hollywood star. "She's a wonderful girl, Arthur," she replied, "but - " (and here she dropped her voice to a whisper) " - she pisses like a horse!"

I think they did that at every game. Another sport I'm done with. Dan Bongino on his podcast a couple of days ago said that MLB was in trouble prior to this with a declining fan base. So they decided that being woke and pissing off a big part of what's left of their fan base is the way to go.

I don't know the racial breakdowns of MLB, but am confident the number of black paying fans is much, much lower than the NBA or NFL.

So this BLM sign move was particularly stupid and damaging to their future business model. Whatever amount that was left, anyway.

He was also a very gifted mimic. A Peter Sellers story:

During the filming of 1967s Casino Royale, Columbia Pictures were dismayed to find out that filming was behind schedule and costs were spiraling out of control. There were also rumors that Sellers was causing major problems on set with his fussiness, demands and general bitchiness.

The studio sent a troubleshooter off to Pinewood Studios to report on the film's problems. It so happened that the troubleshooter took rooms at one of London's swankiest hotels and it was there that, one morning, he found himself in the elevator with Woody Allen, who played the role of "Jimmy Bond," 007s nephew.

"Woody, the studio sent me over here to get the straight dope," the executive said. "Tell me the truth - what's going on here?"

"If you really want to know,"
Allen replied, "it's all Sellers' fault. He won't listen to the director, tries to rewrite scenes, won't work with the other actors - frankly, he's holding up the whole production."

"That's what I heard,"
the executive nodded. "Sellers has always been a pompous asshole. If he's causing that much of a problem, I'll recommend we boot his ass off the movie."

"Sounds great!"
Allen replied, shaking the troubleshooter's hand and walking briskly away. Only then, as he watched "Allen" straighten up and stride across the lobby, did the executive realize he'd been talking to. . .

Peter Sellers.

There aren't many black MLB players. Most good athletes are multi-sport players, and most dream of that big first contract the NBA and NFL pay out for top draft choices.

Of course, nearly all are NOT top draft choices, but the illusion continues to drive them. Even a mid-round NFL draftee, if he makes the team, is getting a contract from 450k to maybe $800k a year, depending.

I would take the MLB, not the one now but in the past, a million times over the NFL. Last I checked the average NFL career was a little over three years. For a lot of these guys this is all they have focused on their entire lives. Once the NFL time is over you have a long, long way to go.

There are many more pros playing baseball than football if you include the minor leagues. And I would be surprised if the average NFL player makes more than the average player in the MLB. For sure things have changed over the years so I could be off on this. But i doubt many who actually have a choice would choose the NFL over MLB.

It has nothing on baseball as a game, but it's definitely a good game.

And I would say there are similarities with baseball, as when everything is on the line, it's incredibly tense. As good as they can be, it's not the same in basketball and football. When it matters, baseball keeps you on a knife's edge. I think hockey is second on that score.

Japan was more like earlier 20th century US or Europe when it came to such things, even by 1945. Very formal for people of rank. And of course Imperial conferences required full get-ups, which must have been especially wonderful during the last two conferences in August '45, in the sweltering bomb shelter. Unimaginable.

There were a number of fast-food entrepreneurs from San Bernardino who influenced the industry. The McDonalds, Glenn Bell, Naugle, Baker's Drive Through. Der Wienerschnitzel was started by Dick Bell.

589 Something going on that's got me very concerned is the dearth of ammunition and even reloading supplies.

All online outlets checked are almost all out of stock of the most popular calibers.

Same goes for the components for reloading.

Part of this is that the covid knocked out the copper mines and the lead mines and there has been little output from these.

The Chilean copper mines say their workers are going to go on strike and the Missouri lead mines have only just got reopened and may close back up.

Tied with a 139% increase in firearm purchase with the concomitant purchase of ammunition has created a totally empty stock of ammunition nation wide.

Checking locally there are small gun shops that still have a lot of components and ammunition because they don't sell online and in some cases they're not exactly easy to find.

This is worse than the ammunition famine during Obama's regime starting in 2012.

We may be seeing a conjunction of circumstances that may doom any attempts to push back against armed governance by the Democrats if they win and insurrection if they lose.

Hang on to what you have because it will be awhile before there is any volume of stock.

590 Rhomboid SS Grisholm, IIRC, was the primary transfer ship. Swedish, I think. A surprising number of notables were on that ship.

The Japanese military attaches that returned were tasked with giving the US war plans as they saw it to the IJA and IJN commands. They were pretty accurate, but not believes.

I saw your book on the pre-War Japanese decisions. All the main players knew Japan would lose any conflict with the US. Yet they persisted.

A real SF story (alternate timelines) would be a Japanese climb down from China proper, and negotiate for the oil they needed.

592 Charles, true.

My own personal theory is that fast food really came to fruition in the Route 66 years when there was still a ton of agriculture around it, and a market full of young and poor migrant workers that appreciated being able to grab something tasty, cheap and convenient, rather than go home and make it themselves.

I is about to bust. And so is Miley. The corn is in, and we went wild. I was figuring tomorrow, but late this evening I went out there and yanked one. It was right. The fever hit and I went to pulling ears, shucking them right there where I yanked 'em, and before I was through, I had pulled 38 ears.

I let Mama pick out some for tomorrow, which was 10, and Miley and I went home with 28. She's been on her low-carb diet, but said she was gonna break it when the corn came in. And she did.

We set aside 5 ears for boiling on the cob, and I cut off the remaining 23 -- she helped me. That went in a big ol' pan.

Miley had 3 ears on the cob, and I stuffed myself with the cut-off. Add okra, green beans, and some pork loin. Everything came right out of the ground here, save for the meat.

And I am about to bust wide open.

617 The Hershey Company known from its famous chocolate bars and the great Reeses brand was founded in Lancaster PA in 1894.

The Hershey Creamery sells Ice Cream in 28 states. It was also founded in Lancaster PA in 1894. Yet these two companies have nothing to do with each other and they spend years and years in copyright battles. The Hershey ice cream actually has to write on its containers that it is not affiliated with the Hershey Company.
But still, two companies, both Lancaster, both 1894, both named Hershey yet have nothing to do with each other. That is a fun fact imo.

The rest of the corn went to his momma, plus 5 ears set aside for corn on the cob. We both pigged out on fresh picked okra and green beans as well.
I ate 3 ears of corn, and I'm lying down. Too full to sit! And too full to try some of the fresh peach pie I made this afternoon.

623 Also, fun and spooky facts about Irvine:

The entire city was planned out around *1961* by William Pereira, who was and is a world-renowned architect. He designed University of California at Irvine, as well as the futuristic restaurant in front of LAX, CBS Television City in Los Angeles, and the Transamerica Building in SF.

The Irvine Company, *60 years later,* is still carrying out his development grid plan.

And, the Irvine Company, which used to be a semi-public corporation run by a board, is now entirely owned by *one* person, Donald Bren, who's also one of America's wealthiest entrepreneurs. So, a large majority (if not all) of the development in Irvine today, is controlled by *one* person.

647 Fun reason why you will likely never see a Whataburger in Virginia. We all know that Whataburger is Tejas brand but they have expanded to other states.

The reason you will likely not see the brand in Virginia is there is a very small hamburger chain in Southern VA also named What-a- Burger. Both companies started in the 1950s and many decades went by before Whataburger Texas new the company in VA existed.

Whataburger sued the small VA company in the early 2000s and lost. The judge said he doubted patrons would be confused about whether their hamburgers came from VA or TX. Whataburger at that time said they had no plans to expand into VA.

Of course the VA What-A-Burger is a very small franchise and i doubt it is growing. so you never know about the future. I wish them well of course as they are a small biz that has lasted a very long time.

I once got to ride in a rattletrap Tata bus from the Chinese-Nepal border to Kathmandu along a steep river gorge on unpaved roads. There were more people on the roof than inside the bus.

America is down to our last 12 billion rounds.

Ok, that was a smartass comment, but the real point is that many who understand why the 2nd Amendment is so important have stocked up.

But seeing 9mm FMJ going for $400 a case, instead of the $210 it was selling for just last year, is a cause of concern.

I have a couple of friends that don't own a firearm and have said, "If it gets bad, I'll just get one from you."

Unfortunately, these friends have covered my butt many times over the years, so they know I would come through for them, in a pinch. And I would.

What I have recently told all of them, "yes, but it will be a .22."

But, progress. One of them has asked me to go to a range to rent some pistols and find the one they like. I've been telling them this for years.

Baby steps. Baby steps.

And at least they will buy 9mm at $400 a case, not the $500 a case it will surely be in a few months.

TUBERAT proposes to solve this very widespread problem by development of a novel mechanical/chemical cleaning apparatus, consisting of an automated cleaning robot, a control system with visual sensor, and a design for use with environmentally-friendly cleaning and disinfection materials.

I only recently learned the history of how the
filet-o-fish was created.

Many decades ago (60's?), some Ohio franchisees wanted to add a fish sandwich to the lineup, because of the large Catholic local customer base. Some even just did it. Ray Croc was pissed and threatened to take away their franchise license.
The local restaurateurs were just trying to keep their customers happy.

So Ray, instead of dumping franchisees, came up with an alternative, a fried pineapple ring on a bun with cheese.
He said he was willing to try them side by side.

The Filet-O-Fish outsold the pineapple sandwich something like 20-1.

The following year, the Fillet-O-Fish was added to the menu nationally.

This is how a free society is supposed to work.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert and the leading medical face in the fight against the coronavirus, says his family has become the targets of what he calls "serious threats." That includes against his wife and his daughters.

Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, made the comments on "The Axe Files" podcast with David Axelrod.

Fauci said that back when he was giving the nation advice during the AIDS pandemic, he would get some hate mail. But he said what he's receiving now is something else -- rooted in anger.

"Serious threats against me, against my family, my daughters, my wife. I mean, really? Is this the United States of America? But it's real," Fauci said. He said he's been given additional security.

Fauci said he's just doing his job and is not the hero some people are making him out to be.

"There are people who get really angry at thinking I'm interfering with their life because I'm pushing a public-health agenda," he said.

The rest of the corn went to his momma, plus 5 ears set aside for corn on the cob. We both pigged out on fresh picked okra and green beans as well.
I ate 3 ears of corn, and I'm lying down. Too full to sit! And too full to try some of the fresh peach pie I made this afternoon.

Fresh corn from the field is proof that God loves people even if they don't drink beer. (Benj. Franklin hat tip)

Decades ago, had some friends that were frat bros., that took me to an annual ritual where they would get a boiling pot going first, pick ears of corn, drop them into the pot literally minutes after they were picked from the field, boiled for 1 minute (NO MORE!) and then served with copious amounts of butter and salt.

Here is the ugly secret that nobody dare mention.

The fish are nearly gone.

As a Seattle native, born when Ike was prez, I was well aware of fish.

A hundred and fifty years ago, American Indians would build clever traps to catch all they could. Rivers would almost be so full of fish, people could nearly walk on them.

But in the last 40-50 years, the demand has outstripped the supply. Giant fishing boats. Chinese fishing boats scooping up whitefish in the Bering Sea.

Cod are maybe 15% of what they were in the 60's. Pollock has taken it's place in American dining cuisine for the most part, a cold white fish, but not as tasty as cod.

30 years ago, it was easy to catch a 100 pound + halibut in Alaska. Now, on a charter, a 10 pounder is common, a 40 pounder may be the biggest fish on the boat for the day.


Tilapia? The Chinese fish that lives in sewers? No taste at all, even the farm-raised ones in other countries.

Uh, no.

Speaking of a bushel of corn, and this for a bushel of dry grain corn, it takes about 1 lb of nitrogen per bushel of yield. So that gives you and idea about how damn much nitrogen some of the ridiculous high record yields require.

Back in our field corn growing days, we'd put about 120lbs N per acre total. This was non-irrigated, of course, and that was about the limiting yield potential. And that was done with about 20 -30 lbs at planting, and the rest as a sidedress with UAN solution when it got about shin high.

The record yield for 2019 was 617 bu /ac. So just imagine how much N they had to apply. And not all at once, but several times over the course of the growing season.

Fresh corn from the field is proof that God loves people even if they don't drink beer. (Benj. Franklin hat tip)



Decades ago, had some friends that were frat bros., that took me to
an annual ritual where they would get a boiling pot going first, pick
ears of corn, drop them into the pot literally minutes after they were
picked from the field, boiled for 1 minute (NO MORE!) and then served
with copious amounts of butter and salt.

And while the "bushel" is the common unit of measure for grain, it's really a weight. A bushel is a unit of dry volume equal to 8 imperial gallons. A "peck" is 1/4 bushel, or 2 gallons.

However, because you're buying and selling mass, not volume, a bushel of a given grain is defined to be a certain weight.

Corn is 56 lbs per bushel, wheat is 60lbs. Barley is 48 lbs. Soybeans are defined as 60 lbs, but that was always a bit high. The average weight per volume of soybeans is closer to 55 than 60 lbs per bushel.

But it doesn't matter, because it's just an arbitrary weight unit, really.

Pan on medium-high heat. Copious amounts of butter, and the trinity, onions, celery, garlic, sauteed for at least 5 minutes, less than 10 minutes.

Dump in the clean, de-bearded mussels into the pan. Add a quarter bottle of chardonnay (cheap is fine). Cover and cook for about 3-4 minutes, or until you can see some of them opening up. Do NOT overcook. Pull out any shells still closed. Those are dead, not worth eating.

Serve with fresh sliced French or Italian loaf. The bread is great to sop up the broth that is served in the bowl of mussels.

The yield with ethanol for fuel production is about 2.7 gallons of ethanol per bushel of corn. This is known as burning your food for fuel. Which ain't good.

Now, bourbon would be more corn, I'm sure. And I think the requirement for bourbon is 51% corn. They throw in other grains as well.

I picked up a bottle of "Apple Jack", Jack Daniel's green apple flavored, and that got me interested in the difference between bourbon and "Tennessee Whiskey" and I was reading up on all that.

Basically, most Tennessee Whiskey could easily be legally called bourbon, but they don't like that. The "Lincoln County Process" of charcoal filtering is what makes it Tennesse Whiskey.

But, no one uses the Lincoln Country process in actual Lincoln County, and one distiller there got grandfathered in the Tennessee Whiskey definition (by paying a lot of money to legislators, I'm sure).

The rules for bourbon get complex. Mash must be 51% corn. It must be distilled to no more than 160 proof. And it must be aged in new charred oak barrels, and introduced to the barrels at no more than 125 proof.

And that's just the basics. There are rules about aging, and what can be called "straight bourbon". The final product can have "neutral spirits" added within certain limits and all that.

The world over, by international agreements, require that bourbon must produced in the United States. Now, the US laws about bourbon apply mostly to product sold in the US. Canada just says that US rules must be used for product sold there. But other countries don't do that.

So distillers sell product for export called bourbon that couldn't be called bourbon if sold in the US.

But anything called bourbon must be made in the US.

Posted by: Average Guy at July 25, 2020 02:39 AM (b2diN)

I am no expert myself, though I have had a few of them lol. They do have corn whiskeys that are very high in corn. The area where I get shaking is in the serious distilling part. Normally a Bourbon is 51 percent corn, then you have a percentage of malted barley, and a percentage of rye. There are a few Bourbons such as Maker's Mark and even Pappy Van Winkle that skip the rye and replace it with wheat.

The reason I am not sure about 100 percent corn whiskey is distillers usually use 5-10 percent malted barley as the enzymes help convert the sugars and get the whole thing going. I think you can malt corn even so 100 percent corn is possible. But the flavor would be a bit one not really, kind of corny and syrupy. There are whiskies called "corn Whiskey" that are mostly corn though.

The Tennessee Whiskey description above is accurate. And not to be glib, but the main thing that makes them TN whiskies is they are from TN. Then you have the Lincoln County process. Another thing I am not sure of is if filtering the whiskey through charcoal necessarily means it can no longer be called Bourbon. I guess I could check on that but I have never heard it come up.
While the Lincoln County process is unique, I don't know if that precludes someone in TN calling their spirit Bourbon. Then again, why would they want to do that? They want to differentiate their brand, TN whiskey.

There are really only two big whiskey distillers in TN. There is Jack Daniels and George Dickel. They both use charcoal filtering but one does it with hot distillate and the other does it with cold distillate. They will both tell you why their method is better lol.

every state is different I suppose but maybe not on this subject. While it is fine to grow tobacco for your own use, make hard cider, and wine (ask me why I know lol), distilling is a different kettle of fish. This is net bs so don't take my word for gospel, trust but verify. But last i checked you could make about a gallon of distilled spirits a year legally.

The obvious problem is it is a herculean task or at least a lot of effort to build a still and go through the process. Long story short, you are going to need a license to make legally distilled spirits in any reasonable quantity

Tennesse whiskey has been classified as "bourbon whiskey" in some international agreements. The charcoal process doesn't preclude being called bourbon from what I gather -- they just don't like to call it that themselves.

There's this: The current controlling definition of "Tennessee Whiskey" at the federal level and international trade level (NAFTA cemented this) is "a straight bourbon whiskey authorized to be produced only in the State of Tennessee".

In 2013, they passed the current law in Tennessee that defines "Tennessee Whiskey". It is the same as bourbon, 51% corn mash, and everything else, plus the Lincoln County process.

There is one exception for Benjamin Pritchard's, which doesn't use Lincoln County process, but is allowed to use the term Tennessee whiskey.

835 AFAIK there's no restrictions regarding filtering. Must be 51% corn. Must be aged in new charred oak barrels. Must be made in US. Must be barreled at no more than 145 proof. Must be bottled at no less than 80 proof. Nothing added but water.

839 The rules for bourbon get complex. Mash must be 51%
corn. It must be distilled to no more than 160 proof. And it must be
aged in new charred oak barrels, and introduced to the barrels at no
more than 125 proof.



And that's just the basics. There are rules about aging, and what
can be called "straight bourbon". The final product can have "neutral
spirits" added within certain limits and all that.

Posted by: publius, Rascally Rapscallion of a Poperin Pear at July 25, 2020 02:43 AM (rCwaK)

I am not sure about the neutral grain spirits. Certainly Canadian Whiskey can have neutral spirits and likely American Whiskey too. But I don't think you can do that with Bourbon. hence the no more than 160 proof rule. They do allow some additions in the end like cask finishing.

But often the flavored stuff loses the Bourbon moniker or even TN whiskey. I bet if you look a the bottle of Apple Jack is says it is a liqueur It can no longer be labeled a TN Whiskey. I checked it and it says it is a liqueur blended with TN whiskey. It is fun to learn about this stuff, I mean, hell, it is booze.

873 If you want to try a cheap bottle of Straight Bourbon Whiskey that SHOULD last a while, give Very Old Barton a try. I doubt it is very old but it is still good for what it is. A 1.75L bottle can be had for about $20. That is less than a ten spot for a fifth. A lot cheaper than those crazy Scotch prices. Sure it is not the same thing but it is a legit low priced Bourbon.

i am going to check on that even if it requires a deep dive. I still have my doubts on this particular issue, but it is fun to learn. You know your stuff and this has been a great discussion.
to be clear the only thing I am disputing is if you can add grain neutral spirits and still call it Bourbon. I know Straight Bourbon is a thing, I know blended Bourbon is a thing though pretty new really. But from what I read blended Bourbon is a blend of Bourbons. I don't see or haven't yet seen where it is ok to blend Bourbon with neutral spirits and call it Boiurbon.

This is done with whiskey all the time. The famous/infamous Seagrams 7 is 30 percent straight whiskey and the rest grain neutral spirits. Either way this has been fun my man.

916 I'm sitting having coffee and about to send a text to my night shift leader out there at the salt mine regarding "social distancing." That has to me the most cynical phrase ever foisted upon mankind. It means stand 6-10 feet apart and yell at your co-workers through a mask and assume they heard you over the racket of machinery, fans and forklifts. Well, they don't hear you. We only really get things done by mostly ignoring the new normal....
