Hopefully they're tracking them so they can vaccinate them.
Nah, they're tracking them so they can figure just how shitty humans are. "hey, this whale started moving real slow right before it washed up on shore wrapped up in discarded fishing gear"

Really though, if you hear on the news that "betty the great white shark was spotted off the coast of florida, so she's migrated south from atlantic canada", that's OTN data.

About to sip on a Black Beerd by Coast brewing in Charleston. 9.3 ABV. This ain't no Busch Light. Good thing I only bought one.

Lunazul Tequila - drinking it right now. Straight as shit. Deal is, I officiated(don't laugh, I'm actually an ordained minister, online ;) ) a wedding for my step-daughter last Sunday. We paid for the booze - we took a bunch of booze home. Beam, Maker's Mark, buncha wine, 2 bottles of the Lunazul and margarita mix crap. The happy couple took the remainder of the keg.
Mazel Tov!

Blender.
3/4 cup milk (I used about 1/2 cup milk and 1/4 cup whipping cream)
double shot of espresso
generous pour of baileys (couple shots worth)
generous pour of vodka
couple tablespoons of Nesquik
Blend.
Sprinkle 1/8 tsp xanthan gum across the top (optional but recommended - keeps the ice crystals in suspension)
Blend some more.
Add 2 cups ice.
Blend until ice crystals are a good size for sucking through a straw.
Pour into a couple of reusable Starbucks glasses
Decorate with some aerosol whipped cream, a drizzle of Nesquik over the cream, and a straw.

Bam. Alcoholic frappucino clone. Go get fucked up in public like a proper yuppie.

I have to give credit to Binging with Babish for this one:


I copied the 2nd one he made (sans the orange whipped cream) as a first crack at a frappucino, before starting to fuck with it.

All manner of things in the liquor cabinet work in it. Tried making one without the coffee/baileys, more Nesquik and creme de menthe to give a mint chocolate 'girl scout cookies' kind of flavor. You can really up the alcohol in this one because the alcohol burn just makes the mint more 'minty' if that makes any sense.

I like it when you guys post these DQ/alcohol mashups. My tolerance is strengthening. My alcoholic sensibilities are loosening.

That drink in the video stillshot doesn’t look like vomit waiting to happen any longer.



PS what happens if you drink 10?

So I got a Tilt, which is a Bluetooth hydrometer. It sits in the wort, sending temps and gravity readings to a waiting Raspberry Pi, which uploads it to Brewer's Friend. The result:
