I have a bottle of Templeton Rye I'm waiting to open till a buddy of mine comes back from Afghanistan in August. I'm figuring on a toast at our Oktoberfest to welcome him home.

Ouch, I guess they take that stuff seriously in VA
I recall (about 25 years ago) that DC raised issue with VA over this. At the DC end of the Key Bridge there was a liquor store (Dixie Liquors). The VA cops (don't recall if they were State or local) would sit on the VA side of the bridge with a telescope watching people come out of the liquor store. When they drove over the bridge they would pull them over and fine them for bootlegging if they had more than a gallon with them. The VA stores were State-run and had higher costs.
My dog Ralph is the guy in my avatar photo. I got him at a rescue last December. 5 days before Christmas. The rescue said he was a German Shepherd/Golden Retriever mix. Hence the name of my brewery. I recently had a vet tell me he was none of the above. That he is a Belgian Tervuren Shepherd. I had never heard of such a thing so I googled them. In appearance and behavior I think there is a good chance he is.
Regardless of what he is, he is a terrific dog. I had never seen such an obedient dog in the house. In the 5 months I have owned him he has never had an accident in the house, never gotten into the trash, never chewed on anything he isn't supposed to. He even picks up his toys and takes them to his bed at night. It was incredibly easy to teach him to do that.
He is fantastic with my grand children. In fact he is fantastic with any small child he sees. He is different towards kids than he is toward adults. It is so cool to see this 72 pound dog being so gentle with kids. I honestly think he could become a very dangerous dog if he thought someone was harming a small child, even if he didn't know the kid.
He is difficult to walk and just not catching on to the leash thing very well. He always wants to chase trucks, never cars, just trucks. I think he must have had a bad experience with one at some time in his life. But I can live with that.
I want my badass science and feeling of "woo, I can't believe we did that!"
Yep! Knowledge for the sake of knowledge. Some say we can't afford it. I say we can't afford NOT to do it!
There's nothing wrong with aluminum pots, but be sure you're not scrubbing &/or using cleansers that remove the oxidation.
Personally, I prefer stainless & got 2 of these:
But...Like I said...There's nothing wrong with aluminum.
I chose stainless, due to durability.
The aluminum pot I have is just too easily dented & I'm not as careful as I should be.
