Week 2 of the Pussyfoot Johnson Challenge.

Pretty much left well enough alone and simply monitored the cask for leakage through days 8-11. We sampled the cask at Day 12 and were taken aback at how much the preparatory substance had changed. Still good but moving REALLY fast and lots of color coming in here. This seems to be a VERY active cask.

So we decide to stay the course and let the sleeping cask lie.

In the meantime I've been unsuccessfully trying to get a 3rd bottle of the Wasmund's Single Malt Spirit but can't find another bottle from March 9, 2009 which is the date of the two bottles in my Kit. Still, since I want the option of filling up the cask completely I need a third bottle - I buy the May 8, 2009 bottling at the Belgian Beer Fest. I'll vat them, unless the March release is noticably better than the May release. Ready to launch...

Also begin preparation for mapping progress by documenting details in test log, photographed initial setup and bottles, preprinting sample labels/setting up the 60ml sample bottles, and setting up sampling calendar that will allow for time for "finishing" stage.

All systems set and ready to go by the end of week 2

Now I need to think about decanting and racking in the Wasmund's soon. Running out of time here.
