It wasn't Sulfuric acid after all

As I walked around the tasting room during the 5th anniversary party, I noticed many of the barrels had SO3 + H2O written on them. I found this curious because SO3 + H2O --> H2SO4, otherwise known as Sulfuric acid. Just days later I was listening to episode 82 and it then it made sense, it was steamed Ozone! I am an Enology student (Chem heavy) at Fresno State and have started listening to your podcast during the commute. The podcast is fun and informative at times. Keep up the good work!

A show to end all shows

Dear Jay and Moscow,

I was highly impressed by the ingenuity you and the Rare Barrel bring to the show. The topics, while being exceedingly difficult, are handled with ease by the professionals you constantly bring to the show. Clearly you should continue for an eternity everything is great please play Lazzarus Q’s “Goodbye Horses” kthnxbye

Goodbye horses play this song
