Clamps and Gaskets: week 11

Clamps and Gaskets: weekly wrap-upClamps and Gaskets is a weekly wrap-up of many stories and other observations which I did not post here at Yours For Good Fermentables.com, but that I find interesting or germane.

Most are concerned with beer, or wine, or whisk(e)y. Some are not. But all are brief. And most are re-posts from my Twitter account.

This is Week 11:
14-21 March 2009
