went for the extra 8th egg and slightly increased the amounts of everything... netted exactly a half gallon. should be far more manageable this season. Old Grand Dad should add some spice with slightly elevated rye in the mashbill.

I ain't your task rabbit. And I don't have the refrigerator space. I'll come over and supervise... Decided to go with Old Forester Mattnog, along with Vieux (old) Agricole Clement rum. Befor

#noexcuses Went high brow for the booze cause HC.

The New York Times is also mainstreaming making fresh and aged nog. I might make a fresh batch with this recipe -- maybe substituting whipped cream for the beaten egg whites because I like that so much with the Mattnog -- just to compare them.

Anyone started their 2020 batch yet?

{Were going to need it}

 

Going to work on sourcing ingredients. {Booze}

Literally thought of this the other night while strolling through the grocery store and seeing fake 'nog on the shelves.  I need a new pitcher.

^in my case i realized i hadn't touched the brandy or rum leftover from last year's batch. i need to make more of a dent. should really just do the 14-egg recipe exactly as Matt documented but it is an insane amount of NOG for two people.

Agreed, even the half batch that I did last year was on the side of too much.

Seeing as we cannot travel this year, it seemed right to use only local Bay Area booze and organic produce for Mattnog 2020. I also figured it couldn't hurt to use all the milk and cream and expand the recipe a bit (including another ⅓ cup of each booze and two more egg yolks, not pictured). We have a long quarantine winter to get through, after all!

Before:

You half-batchers are crazy. It lasts a long time and we're going to be stuck at home for the foreseeable! I ended up with a 1.25 batch so that socially distant gatherings can be warmed up...

my batch is ready. i went Turkey 101 for the bulk of bourbon this time (last year was Old Grand Dad BIB) and also splashed in some Maker’s for a little balancing sweetness. this year’s initial taste was less boozy than last year. still has 3/4 cup rum, 3/4 cup brandy, 1.5 cups turkey, and unmeasured pour of makers.

...oh i also sampled last year’s, which is officially over 1 year old.
