    The Madvatter strikes again!

    Hey guys, I know this is a subject that is throughout the threads,but I thought it would be a good idea to have one with all the different vats that we have tried,a "recipe book" you might say.So we could just go and look up some new ones, or add some new ones to the list. So here goes, I am going to list vats by the dominant one first followed by the dominant mixture as well,which is based off 100% rather than 2:1, I figure that way we can have an exact pour ratio for whatever you want to mix up - eg.. 1oz,pint,375,or 750.
    First just a quick story why I thought about this.. My wife and I went out for their x-mas party on Sat. at a Comedy sports club, went the bar to see what they had, nothing but a WT101 for the top shelf!, They had some JBW,and some OF prime for bottom,which I thought unusual. Any way I ordered the WT neat, was tasty ,but boring, so on the next round, I told the guy give me a pour of the WT & top it off with some JBW,he didn't even bat an eye and poured it. Quite tasty! Had 1 more during the remainder of the night.
    So anyway here goes:

    JBW/JBB - 50:50 mmmmm. -- One of my go to's -(83 proof)
    BT/JBDC - 50:50 -- another good one - (90 proof)
    EC20/PVW20 -55:45 -- oooh! - (90 proof)
    EC21/EC18 - 55:45 -- nice balance - (90 proof)
    VOB 6yr.(86)/AAA10 yr. -- 55:45 -- currently drinking this one,very tasty! - (86 proof)
    EC12/Stagg jr. -- 55:45 -- almost like ECBP! - (112.18 proof)
    EWB/Stagg jr. -- 60:40 -- mmmmm - (105.36 proof)
    EWB/AAA10 yr/Vob 6yr/Stagg jr. -- 40:25:20:15 -- very tasty! (93.26 proof)
    EWB/AAA10 yr/Vob 6yr/Stagg jr. - I also took this one and added a touch of CEHTR with it quite remarkable!

    Those are just some of the ones I have tried or can remember, here are some of the ones I picked up off old threads:

    OFBIB/JBDC - 50:50
    EWB/WTRR - 65:35
    OWA/OW12 - 50:50
    Angels envy/WT101 -- 80:20
    PVW15/VWFRR - 50:50
    KC/4RSSB -- 60:40
    EWB/EWSB --50:50
    EC12/RR10 -- 50:50

    I'm sure there's someone out there that can probably make this into a better table than I can , so feel free to do that. Any how,hope you guys get to try some of these,and look forward to hearing some new ones! Once the list grows I'll try to revamp it accordingly.

    Re: The Madvatter strikes again!

    Some that I've tried and loved, mostly from suggestions of another SBer, include:

    OGD 114/Ritt BIB Blend (75:25)
    WT101/OFS (50:50)
    OWA/W12 (60:40) & (70:30)

    I think with almost any of these though, if someone is interested in trying them out they should play with the ratios to suit their liking. If you like a 50/50 ratio, go ahead and try a 60/40 in both directions. I know I'm glad I did that, as the SB Blend at 50/50 is really good, but doesn't hit me like the 60/40 (or even the 70/30).

    OGDBIB and 4RYL @ 50:50 does a very good imitation of ETL at about 40% less money and the same exact final abv.

    One that I've been enjoying lately is EWBIB and EBSB 12yr at roughly 60:40.

    EBSB 12 yr. .. I bet that's good.. I always liked Ezra B. unfortunately out of it. Always stood out on flavor,very unique.

    My Stagg Jr. and Old Grand Dad 80 mixed 50-50 makes a really nice flavor for my liking.
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    Re: The Madvatter strikes again!

    I appreciate the vatting ideas concerning Stagg Jr. I just don't dig it as a stand alone pour
