Beer: Sawtooth Nitro Amber Ale
Description: I believe this is my first nitro style beer with a lighter malt body. The head is nice and rich as expected from a nitro. The aroma is toffee-like with some earthiness. The flavor was sweet and smooth, with a hint of bitterness on the back end. I think they nailed the beer, it’s just not my preference. I definitely want to try this one again though, to see if it grows on me!
There's really only one rule to remember when makeing a bochet, what you get is what you smell! I ran a little experiment in which I tried a lesser carmelization and am pretty impressed with what came of it. Once again shout out to @bibbleandsip I can't stop using it's Sip function. -Vincent

What a fascinating beer, totally breaking the mould. .
Starts off super juicy but quickly descends into smoky darkness. It’s got an oaky, peaty body that you’d expect from a single malt.
Brilliantly different, inventive, creative. This isn’t for everyone, but it’s excellent.
STRAWBERRY DAQUIRI ISLAND — well FML for completely forgetting about this and just now finding it in my fridge 😩 it was brewed quiiiiite some time ago. With that being said, this 5.5% frozen daquiri inspired kettle sour still tastes damn delicious! Pours with a light body, light carbonation and a gorgeous orange bronze-ish color. Definitely getting lime on the nose, and upon first sip, the lime/acidity stand out. The strawberry flavors then take over. This totally reminds me of flavored champagne almost? (I remember as a kid we’d get this “champagne” that was strawberry flavored and this immediately made me think of that) It’s extremely easy to drink, light, not boozy, just enough to kick off my day drinking activities today 😂 have you guys tried this? What’d you think? Cheers! 🍻🍻🍻

Three bowls, each made with a different stoneware clay body but with the same dark green glaze applied. The change that it makes from piece to piece in the surface texture and colour is really surprising. The usual clay I use is that of the bottom bowl, while wedged in-between is an old piece made with a now unknown clay body and the topmost bowl is a newer clay that I hope to begin using more. All are stonewares with high levels of iron mixed in and are reduction fired in gas kilns.
I prefer this method as a way of creating different hues as opposed to having dozens of glaze buckets filling up the studio, although it does mean I have to be more careful with my reclaim. One benefit of having two wheels is that I can throw with different clays on each, one for porcelain, one for stoneware, without having to constantly mop out the wheel tray and thoroughly clean them so contamination doesn’t occur. At least when using stonewares that are at least quite similar I don’t mind too much if a few bits mix here and there. I can just wedge the clay properly and my glazes will work well, even giving results that’ll likely be very difficult to ever reproduce accurately. I like having pots that fire differently to everything else, irregularities in colour, clay, specks of iron, flashes of red from copper or swaths of over fired glaze that create gradients in colour across the pot all add to their interest.
“It was in late November that Rahul Mishra learned he had been invited to present his collection on the official Paris Haute Couture schedule.” “Mishra’s embroideries have been his point of differentiation since he began showing his ready-to-wear in Paris some four years ago, primarily because they capture a vision that is at once naïvely artistic and engaged in message.” - excerpts from @amyverner ‘s review of our Spring Couture 2020 Collection.
