The bacon vodka is almost ready

bacon vodkaI've been watching Evan's quest to make bacon vodka unfold, and I'm overtaken by a mixture of curiosity and nausea.

He's using cutting edge technology to filter out all of the little blobs of fat for extra pure bacon vodka.

See, I know I'm going to have a shot of it on Thursday at the soiree (yes, it's still on for Idle Hour, 203 E. Fort Ave. at 7 p.m.).

Maybe I'll do it of my own free will, or maybe I'll be suckered into doing a shot. I'm not sure which one.

But I'll have a Resurrection handy to wash the evil taste out of my mouth.

And I better not be the only one drinking this stuff, either.

i personally pledge to hold the hand of whoever takes a shot while they do it.

(not an actual pledge)

Those centrifuge tubes better be sterilized. And even so, after knowing how many generations of antibiotically resistant bacteria have grown in them, I still find their usage a bit nasty.

Greg, that's a really good point. Evan, if I drink your bacon vodka and get ebola we're going to have words.

I can personally guarantee that those containers aren't used for spinning down bacteria preps (we use disposable 50mL conicals for that, our preps are never over 200mL). Plus I autoclaved them before use, and rinsed them with EtOH prior to autoclaving them. So yeah, they were clean. Also the vacuum filter is packaged sterile if anyone wonders further.

I guess I should have mentioned that for the people recognizing the equipment being used!
