Homebrew / DIY alcohol thread (5)

1 Name: Anonymous Hobbyist : 2023-01-12 17:22 ID:RXeKTtEz

This thread is for all "DIY alcohol" enthusiasts.

I recently moved to an Islamic country and I've turned to homebrewing as a means of satisfying my addiction tastes. r/prisonhooch ugh, I know, Reddit has been a pretty useful learning research, and it may for you too.

Brews I've attempted so far:

1. Apple juice + orange juice + water + sugar + bread yeast

> About 3 weeks in and it's ready to sample.
> The apple notes give a pleasant taste. Without a hydrometer, I estimate this brew to be ~10%. It would be very drinkable, but fermented orange juice (at this stage) adds an unmistakable vomit flavor to the brew. 6/10. It's getting me drunk on the cheap and tastes better than Steel Reserve.

2. Sticky rice + "rice wine starter"

> Those Orientals have a special ball you can acquire with the enzymes to convert rice starches to sugars, which yeast can readily turn to alcohol. Put warm (not HOT) cooked sticky rice in a jar, sprinkling in the magic powder, and seal the container; after enough time, delicious liquids will magically arise. No bubbles after about 2 weeks time. After extracting the liquid and refrigerating, it naturally separated into 2 layers. 8/10. The clear liquid on top was the superior beverage but both were tolerable with good flavor.

Latest big batch of apple cider (roughly 8 liters) turned out well. After it was essentially done bubbling and the balloons deflated, they went in the fridge. Roughly 16% each. Adding a bit of cinnamon, cloves, black pepper, and artificial sweetener and additional time in the fridge really helped with flavor. Used EC-1118 yeast.

2L of grape juice with no added sugars and bread yeast turned out fine, fermented to 6%. Fridge jacked it to boost it up to 14% or more. A lot better. Flavor more intense. The grape juice is a mix of red and white grape juice, which makes it pretty interesting.

My attempt to mix vanilla syrup with water didn't turn out so well. Maybe fermented to 4% before it refused to ferment any more.

1KG of sticky rice produced ~1.5L or so of rice wine. It's starting to separate in the fridge between cloudy and clear rice wine. Historically, clear rice wine was for nobles and the cloudy stuff was for peasants, or so the story goes. Definitely more labor intensive

Hello. My name is Jonathan Rail. I have a website at http://johnrealgamer.com/ Anyway, in all my years, I have seen a resurgence in Japanophilia, and many don't know where to start. I have compiled 8 items that will help YOU become a social reject.

  1. Addu the letter u to the endu of random wordsu.
  2. Use ランダムな Japanese adjectives in the middle of sentences, because people will know what you're talking about. It's just so kawaii!
  4. Use your mother's heart medication to get poorly made costumes for cosplaying.
  5. Eat with chopsticks.
  6. Reprace arr instances of l with r.
  7. Claim to be a Tru™ otaku, without knowing what an otaku really is.
  8. Correct ANYONE who mispronounces Japanese words, even though they usually mispronounce anime.

Check out my webpage if you enjoyed this! Happy Japanesing!

Hello. My name is Jonathan Rail. I have a website at http://johnrealgamer.com/ Anyway, in all my years I have seen a resurgence in Japanophilia and many don't know where to start. I have compiled 8 items that will help YOU become a social reject.

1. Use an anime profile picture on every internet account you have access to.
2. Change your internet account names to something Japanese-like. If you don't feel like copying random Japenese text, simply add -kun to the end of your name.
3. Keep a text file on you at all times containing kawaii emoticons. If you lose your text file you can always resort to simple emoticons like uwu.
4. Always periodically say uwu and other related kawaii sentences on your internet accounts. Do this even if you interrupt someone.
5. Make yourself only interested to Japanese women. If you are gay (you probably are) then only be interested in Japanese men.
6. Start purchasing random crap from Japan. Be sure to have more items from Japan than your own country where you reside.
7. Always praise and worship anything Japanese. If you think your peers (if you have any to begin with) have forgotten about how good Japan was, be sure to remind them again!
8. Always replace more activities with the Japanese alternatives. If you liked watching tv or movies, then only watch Japanese produced tv or movies.

I sometimes deliberately misuse kaomojis to annoy my co workers and have put up a bunch of random underage anime girls up as profile picture on work accounts. I’m beginning to use random Japanese words in my emails and have made public comments praising Pearl Harbor attacks and 9/11. I purchase random crap from Taiwan and pretend it’s Japanese. I’ve considered putting up a picture of Bin Laden on my desk and some giant mecha anime toys but they’ve yet to arrive in the mail.

So now I have lolis plastered all over my desk and online profiles and I’m looking for a nice fitting frame for my Bin Laden portrait which is really kawaii. Thankfully, my bastard team mates have stopped talking to me already and there’s talk of complaints to HR. Well fuck em.

HAM Radio questions (2)

1 Name: Anonymous Hobbyist : 2021-03-30 22:42 ID:IbFKFCB9

Hello, I just started getting into HAM Radio, and I wanted to know what would be a good radio to start off with. Should I just stay with a relatively low-powered handheld until I get at least General class certifications, or should I save myself the trouble of replacing the radio for a suitable one later and get one that can access Extra-class level frequencies now?
Tell me your thoughts.

Help me choose a new hobby (97)

1 Name: Maredsous : 2006-04-29 07:07 ID:Wl7genXi

I just started to look at this site and decided this place might be a good place to ask a serious question with anonymity. I have a small problem. I'm 23 and my two main interests, video games and anime/manga, are started to become boring to me. After so much exposure, more than enough for a lifetime even, I think I should truly move on and look for something new.

I talked with some of my friends and a couple ideas sparked my interest. Here's a short list of ideas I have that I've liked so far:
Target shooting w/rifles
Beer brewing

I've thrown out hobbies like photography and music(anything related) due to general apathy. I'd like something that would keep me somewhat active (why archery and boxing are there), but would like something that can be truly affected by changes that I can make (why rifles and beer brewing are there). I tend to like the idea of messing around with something to make it better, which is why I liked playing some cRPGs and some racing games with tuning. I like beer and wine, but I'm not exactly sure I'd want to suffer through the experimentation of making my own. Boxing sounds fun, but would be tough to find space for the stand and bag. Rifle shooting sounds like the best option, but I don't have the money for what I want yet (I liked the feel of the Ruger Mini-14 which is ~$600).

If you're looking for board games, I recommend chess:

  • High skill ceiling
  • There's almost always a chess club or tournament nearby
  • Great way to meet people
  • Free / Open Source chess websites (lichess)

I got into it a couple of months ago and am really enjoying it.

HEMA (historical european martial arts).
It's just every kind of swordfighting grouped into one.
Longswords, rapiers, sabres, arming swords and more of all styles and eras. Try to find a local club. A (training) sword is $200 and the safety equipment is a few hundred, but you only need that once you move onto sparring.

97 Name: Anonymous Hobbyist : 2023-01-04 15:32 ID:k46jLrzA

Hey OP. Definitely try archery! It's a very fun hobby. All you need is a target and now.

For a target, you can buy something like old hay bales and old rug (so the arrows don't go through and kill anyone) set against a fence or wall. But ideally, you can order a target off of Amazon or somewhere.

For a bow, you determine what kind you want. Modern? Traditional? Recurve? Then you find the size and what is called the weight. Search online for more info on this. I personally use traditional Korean horse bows, one from Kaya: https://horsebowshop.com/collections/kaya-korean-traditional-bows

It's hard at first and takes a while to learn how to properly shoot. You'll miss a lot. But in time you'll become the best archer in the land. You can also join an archery club at some point where you'll have access to a lot of targets to use and can get pro tips for shooting. Have fun if you decide to try it!

Board games (33)

1 Name: Enthusiast : 2005-12-17 04:44 ID:nKmdLBba

When I was a kid, I played the standards like Monopoly(does anyone ever read all the mortgaging rules?), chess/checkers, or battleship. Then I got a PC and largely ignored them for a long time. I recently learned about Go and Settlers of Catan, and have had a lot of fun playing online. It's piqued my interest in board games again, and I've found several that look interesting but it's so hard to find someone to play with, especially for the quirky games like the ones from Cheapass Games.

Lockdown killed my mahjong club and it never really recovered

30 Name: Anonymous Hobbyist : 2022-11-14 09:05 ID:BBCjaMbD

I play riichi mahjong in person with a few friends on a weekly basis, and that started BECAUSE of lockdown. I think that while it does take a while to learn, it always feels fresh to play.

Other games I enjoy are History of the World, Hanamikoji and Galaxy trucker. I love tabletop RPGs, but we only ever really play d&d 5e and 3.5e. I want to try cyberpunk at some point.

31 Name: Anonymous Hobbyist : 2022-11-15 14:33 ID:UxGypzRv

I've only played riichi by myself with computer in PC-98 games and I still don't know how to play despite beating a few opponents. The best I could do was count.

32 Name: Anonymous Hobbyist : 2022-11-15 17:20 ID:Heaven

Not knowing how to play mahjong is a good thing. Knowing why you shouldn't play mahjong is a better thing. Real mahjong is usually played by 4 people, and you can never know if the 3 people playing with you agreed to prioritize you. Even without actually cheating they can "rob" you.

33 Name: Anonymous Hobbyist : 2022-11-21 15:52 ID:Mf/1Lm8i

>>32 it's pretty difficult to engage in a coordinated attack in mahjong without agreeing on it beforehand. There's a 1/27 chance that every player deliberately targets you if they are choosing randomly.

Even if they did agree to target you, if you are playing "real" mahjong like hong kong old style people don't have much control over the flow of the game. In Riichi, which is the main ruleset played by enthusiasts on the internet nowadays, defensive choices like Beatori are your friend if you are paranoid - there's almost no way to deliberately target players (why we have rules like headbump, temporary furiten, kuikae, etc).

Cheating is also very difficult if you have a somewhat decent play environment (and practically nonexistent if playing online). In fact, if you're worried about players acting maliciously at all, I would recommend finding new people to play against.

But what this all really means, though, is that you, >>32, should just stick with Rummikub.

Easy, Simple Yet Useful Recipees [n00bs] (44)

ITT simple recipees! Try to keep everything as simple and non-regional as possible. All manner of clarifications and explanations are welcome.

35 Name: Anonymous Hobbyist : 2022-02-13 04:45 ID:PN/oobPh

I like to make Kraft-style mac n cheese at home with my own resources. It comes out much better than Kraft, Annie's, etc. imo, and you can control my serving sizes much easier than with boxed mac n cheese. I use red lentil rotini (any pasta is fine but red lentil pasta's delicious, try it), dried cheddar cheese powder (I use whatever I can get on Amazon with government gibs, usually - Hoosier Hill is good, Anthony's is bland but not bad), salt and protein powder.

Cook 1 serving of your preferred pasta. While it's cooking, mix about 14~15g of cheese powder with an equal weight of protein powder (you will need a scale.) 1 or 2 grams of table salt depending on your taste. Add a little bit of filtered water and stir it up into a paste - a little water goes a long way, but I've never bothered to measure how much I use. If the mixture's thick but well-mixed, that's about what you should aim for, but if it's a little thin it won't hurt anything.

Once the pasta's done, drain it, turn off your stove, return pasta to pot and stir in the cheese sauce. Be careful about applying further heat to it, because heat can ruin the protein powder.

Another easy recipe I love making is carnitas. If you have a slow cooker, just take a fatty piece of pork, rub it down with your choice of seasonings, and throw that shit in the slow cooker for 8-12 hours depending on the weight of the pork. If you take it out when it's shreddable, it's almost impossible to screw up. After that just shred the pork and broil it until it's crispy enough for your liking. I like to make tacos with guacamole, lime juice, sour cream and green onions.

I just wanted to share a little cooking tip with you. If you get a tin of soup (this works with any kind of soup) and put it in the microwave for 2 minutes (based on 800W microwave - you may have to adjust the time if your microwave is more or less powerful), take it out and sprinkle in some ground black pepper. Give it a stir then put it in the microwave again for 1 minute. Then let it settle for a minute or two before eating. The black pepper really gives it a nice little extra kick!

  • 1/4 lb caster sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 lb unsalted butter

ITT: What food made you sick/stomach pain, but it was worth it? (14)

1 Name: Anonymous Hobbyist : 2021-03-30 22:38 ID:xPA06vhE

I ate the Cinnabon Cheesecake at Cheesecake Factory, and it was definitely worth the thumbprint of shit that was in my underwear by the time I got home. The Fried Mac and Cheese was good too, but not enough to justify the pain on their own. I do have to say that it tasted more like regular cake than cheesecake, but cake tastes good, so there are no worries.

Hello. I apologise if this is misplaced, my first time on this forum. I like birdwatching and I was wondering if there were any sites that have tips for birdwatching and pictures. Thank you

Sir, this is 4-ch. It's probably going to be here for 5+ years and 4-ch will probably outlive it somehow.

Guitar and Bass questions (19)

1 Name: Sen : 2007-08-30 20:08 ID:2qZ+F/Wt

Hey ya'll.
I've been playing guitar for about two years, but I am not very skilled at all. I need some fairly easy, but good sounding songs to learn.

And how much would a bass guitar cost? Would I need a seperate amp just for it? I have a good amp for my Electric.

Don't use an electric bass on a guitar amp. My advice is don't think it won't happen because it will. You'll ruin it.

You can use a electric bass on a guitar amp. just don't use it too loud, because THAT is what fucks up the amp. using your guitar amp for gigs and such is completly out of the question.

If you're buying a bass to begin learning how to play, I guess you could slightly wreck your guitar amp trying to find out whether you want to play it or not. After a few weeks, if you find that you like playing bass, I suggest that you invest in a bass amp. It's the frequency of the sound of the bass that ruins a guitar amp; volume affects this but is not the only factor. Just because you turn down the volume does not guarantee that the guitar amp will not be destroyed.

Incidentally, in buying a bass, I recommend a 4-sting passive, preferably secondhand as you are not yet sure whether you will pursue this hobby.

And for the record, learning how to play the bass is quite different from the guitar. The strings are thicker, the techniques (slapping, popping, tapping, etc.) are different, and plucking is different as well (and is not a very common technique).

The best way I've improved was by listening to many different styles of music. For 4 years, I've played nothing but punk and some mainstream rock bands, and I had never really gotten better. It wasn't until I started listening to and playing blues, classic rock, and heavy metal that I got better, quicker.

Although learning these songs may help improve your technique, looking into learning scales, chords, and basic music theory is very important. Out of these, I'm most knowledgeable on learning scales (my failure as a rhythm player is due to my lack of knowledge on more complex chords and most music theory). Start with the minor pentatonic scale (http://www.jamcenter.com/minorpentatonic.html). There are a number of sites that provide lessons on becoming more familiar with this scale (http://www.worldguitar.com/warmup2.html). Once you know the scale through the fretboard (not necessarily mastered), you can start learning to improvise. This takes a lot of time and practice. The best way I learned to do this was by listening to a lot of blues musicians (I listened to a lot of B.B. King, Hendrix, and Stevie Ray Vaughan) and learning guitar licks. I use these licks in my playing, but I eventually learned to create my own which would eventually shape my own style of playing. These things will sort of come naturally to you once you get started on it. Also, don't be afraid to jam with other guitar players. I learned a lot from a man who I met and jammed with at Guitar Center. He was one of my main inspirations for playing the blues.

Explore the Jam Center website. It has a lot of free lessons that you can use.

If you decide to learn bass, get ready for lots of painful blisters on your fingertips if you get serious. They hurt like crazy, but they're the fastest way to get calluses, which make your fingers more resistant to blisters and pain.

If you can play a bit of guitar already, bass is really easy! Also, guitar amps aren't designed to handle the bass guitar's lower frequencies, don't risk it!
