Clamps and Gaskets: week 12

Clamps and Gaskets: weekly wrap-upClamps and Gaskets is a weekly wrap-up of many stories and other observations which I have not posted here at Yours For Good Fermentables.com, but that, nevertheless, 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. References preceded by "@" or "via" or "#" are the names of Twitter account holders or discussion threads.

This is Week 12:
21- 28 March 2009
