    Default Anyone age their stuff under the sea?

    Interesting article about champagne from a shipwreck and some of the chemical analysis on it, Sounds like they liked it very sweet, including adding sugar when it was served? EWWW

    300 grams of sugar per liter !!!! You could use that to launch your hydrometer into the stratosphere !!!

    The beer they found in the same shipwreck was less interesting, it seems.

    Now if you can find a sailboat going from England to India I wouldn't mind putting a cask of mead on it to see how it ages...

    I did a little digging and it seems ocean aging isn't a new thing. Several wineries have been experimenting with it since about 2008 or so (I suspect there are more, but the ones I found actually sell ocean aged wine) In fact there is a company that will cellar your wine under the sea. It's one of those "of course" moments when you read about it. Relatively shallow depths (easily accessed by divers) are dark and remain at a constant cellar temperature with no need to artificially maintain temps or humidity levels. Not to mention how cool bottles look when they come up, covered in little sea urchins, etc. As the shipwreck find illustrates, they can sit down there for over a hundred years no problem!

    I've seen ocean-aged rum before. I didn't think much about it at the time but it's probably what Mannye is talking about.
    It goes ding when there's stuff.

    This one from a few years ago (just found it in an old brewlog from Medsen Fey), bringing Portugal and the Netherlands together.

    It's also the first time I hear about aged urine...
