    Going through the cellar I found porn -- 12/2011 Stonehaven

    Going through the cellar I found a small sealed mason jar of Stonehaven dated 12/2011. This is a small portion of the rest of the bag that went into a larger jar, and shows a good amount of crystals on the flakes. Many times I will put a bit away in a smaller jar to age, and also to be used...

    McClelland Bulk Sale at P&C

    For my brothers (and sisters) of the briar, P&C is having a 15% off sale on MC Bulk blends. If these blends are on your list, this may be a good time to stock the cellar. I added about 4 pounds to my cellar. As far as the ketchup smell; "You want fries with that?" :rofl:

    I had an accident this morning

    Like many I have tried my hand at blending and layering different blends. Some of these experiments have taken blends I enjoyed separate and created something together that is less to something that was horrible. Have any of you, in efforts to avoid wasting small amounts of good blends...
