      Now this is interesting.

      The very first thing I distilled was a honey brown beer I'd made the
      year before but didn't like much so never bothered to bottle....

      It tasted fine... though I did get a terrible hangover the next day from
      being enthusiastic and consuming too much (and also not redistilling it
      multiple times as I later learned I should have done, making cuts)
