this message reminds me of a very painfull lesson I learned a while
The time I had 2 carboys full of 80% spirit that was so bloody cold
I couldn't get a decent reading.
So being the impatient bastard I sometimes am, decided to warm them
up in a tub of warm water.
I almost cried when the glass shattered and I had to pull the plug
on 10 litres of spirit.
silly thing is, if i had of thought of what I was doing before I did
