A sourdough starter is probably more than most people would bargain for, personally i think its the next level up once youve been making a few varieties of bread

bread honestly just needs time. id try to explain it but im much more "hands-on" and only really am in my element when i can show it to you and be like "so when it looks like this, it has enough water","when it looks like this, its finished its rise and is good to bake"

its a tactile experience.

can give a few recipes for breads if youre interested, but i tend to give approximations as i dont often weigh or measure

no though

you must understand what to look for. the indicators of what stage it is in. You need knowledge in order to understand what youre looking for. youre stating the equivalent of "cooking a chicken is easy, just put it in the oven"

either you understand what a chicken looks like and how it behaves in its various stages of "cooked", or you lack that knowledge, and while you may still, technically, be "cooking" the chicken, it is entirely a guessing game. It really frustrates me when people try to pass off their knowledge like its commonplace, its arrogant. You may think its casual, but its arrogant and pays no respect to the process, the alchemy, and ritual involved.

ok here we go

in a large, wide mixing bowl
  • 500 grams of Strong While flour (simply called bread flour to americans)
  • 8 grams of instant/dried/fast-action yeast (several names for essentially the
same thing) sprinkled over it
  • 10 grams flaked sea salt (or table. i guess. put about 8 grams in that instance)

just loosely sift these together with your fingers. next, put your hand into the center of the bowl and push the flour out sideways, essentially making a "well" in the center with flour on all sides

into that well, you pour water. this is where it gets tricky..i never measure this. heres what i suggest

start with about a cup and a half of water, into the well. put your hands in the well and start to slowly move it around the center of the bowl clockwise, gradually pulling in small amounts of flour from the sides, working it into the water, and grabbing more.

Once it is no longer possible to do this, and the dough is getting sticky, begin to simply push the entire clump around the bowl, kneading, folding it into itself as you go, trying to pick up the stray deposits of flour you missed. Bear in mind that however wet the dough is, itll firm up a bit after a few minutes of kneading. Add your water carefully and in stages, but ultimately, dont frett if you add too much causing quite a loose dough. That can be fixed via a combination of kneading, and extra flour

Your dough now has everything in it it needs. there are no more ingredients, except......time. whooosh

you ought to knead it about 5-10 minutes in total, better technique means less time. There *are* many ways to knead here, you should find what works for you. All you are doing, is *working* the gluten. Providing agitation. Stretching, pulling, folding and thumping. You can knead it in the bowl, you can turn it onto a counter and put both hands and your whole body into it. you can even pick the thing up, hold it in the air and use your two hands to pull it and fold it and keep bringing it in on itself

done? ok. Put it back in the bowl you had it in (hopefully its at least twice as large as the ball of dough), put some cling film or a kitchen cloth over the top, to prevent draughts of air from causing it to skin, and leave it somewhere warm, say...3 hours max. If you really wanna push it. i leave mine nice and long and get on with other stuff

come back to it, it should be smelling fucking gorgeous by this point, itll be over doubled in volume and bursting with carbon dioxide. plop it out onto a counter, knock out all the stale gasses with your hands and give it less than a minutes kneading to introduce new ones. Now choose your vessel - the style of bread you will make. This quantity is good for either a 2lb loaf tin, a bloomer-style loaf where it just sits on a baking sheet. or you can divide it into 8 or more buns (if they seem like theyll make small buns when you portion it out, trust me, theyll double again, and then some more)

prepare your tray, pan or tin of choice, give it a good buttering and place the dough into it. You need it covered again, this time cling film wont quite manage it. I always just use disposable bin bags - i puff it up full of air, put the tray or tin inside, blow directly into the bag to make sure its puffed up, then scrunch up the opening and bring it around underneath the tin so its weight pinches the bag closed. giving you a big inflated pocket of air for your dough to rise undisturbed

leave it like that another hour or more. When its about ready, get the oven to 220 Celsius, have a rack ready on the middle shelf. As soon as its reached the right temperature, and not a moment before, remove your loaf from its plastic sanctuary. using a keen knife, quickly score it twice or thrice diagonally on its top-side, and slide it into the oven

Give it about 30 minutes, but check the oven after 20. do not open the oven before 20 minues have elapsed, for any reason

If you want to create a better crust you can place another baking tray just on the bottom of the oven. Before the loaf goes in, quickly throw some ice onto the tray. Itll supply a steady supply of steam to the bread above, causing it to crust softer

The loaf is ready when you upturn it from its receptacle and hear a hollow *knock* as you tap on its bottom. It should be coloured on its underside.

The cider is bottled & I'm just waiting for the priming sugar to do its thing, then I'll pasteurize it and have bubbly cider.

I drank some of it flat, and while it was good, and would be so much easier to end the process there, I like bubbly cider better.

Basically anything that calls for a lemon in savory foods, can be made even better with preserved lemon. It just fuses better with the flavor, as the rind is soft n shit. It has a really florally flavor, and only a bit salty.

You can use it in cakes too, my ma makes a lemon champaigne sorbet and mixes in preserved lemon into it. The combination of everything makes it fizz in your mouth when eating it, it's dank .

Dank man. Let me know how it goes. It doesn't take too long to preserve dem lemons, so the turnover is pretty quick.

You probably know all this already, but it's the rind that you gotta use. The flesh part doesn't impart that zesty hit after it's been preserved.

I recommend finely dicing it and adding it into some couscous, coriander, rapeseed oil (or thick oil equivalent) and a good pinch of salt and pepper. Some olive too if you feel like it, but i'm not really an olive kind of guy.

Made them into blocks. These are called meju blocks in Korea.
I kickstarted the fermentation by keeping them between 30-40 degrees Celsius using the oven. It seems to have worked quite well. Lots of white microbe growth and no bluegreen molds like aspergillus parasiticus or flavus so seems to be off to a good start.

This would normally be in powder form but I'm too lazy to process it into powder so I'll just mash it down. If the consistency bothers me I'll just run an immersion blender into it later.

>What is called liquamen is thus made: the intestines of fish are thrown into a vessel, and are salted; and small fish, especially atherinae, or small mullets, or maenae, or lycostomi, or any small fish, are all salted in the same manner; and they are seasoned in the sun, and frequently turned; and when they have been seasoned in the heat, the garum is thus taken from them. A small basket of close texture is laid in the vessel filled with the small fish already mentioned, and the garum will flow into the basket; and they take up what has been percolated through the basket, which is called liquamen; and the remainder of the feculence is made into allec.

Pic is a couple weeks old and those dill half sours are gone, but I just started a new batch of sauerkraut a couple days ago.

I'm pretty comfortable with doing kraut and pickles, what's the next step in pickling and fermenting? Should I do hot sauce next?

Kombucha. Added the scobe there (that nasty white semen like substance), sealing with muslin cloth and then leaving in a dark room temp place for 8/9 days before bottling and adding flavorings such as fruit/juice/herbs.

Will make about 3L of this shit every fortnight. Will report back on first batch.

Oh any suggestions on flavorings? I'm getting half of this, bottled into two bottles, so that's two 750ml of kombucha.
I'm thinking apple and blackberry, as its blackberry season (a fair amount growing wild around the corner from me) and I grow apples out my back.
Haven't decided what ill have for the second bottle, so like I said, suggestions welcome.

Apple & blackberry sounds good, it's a bit late in the year for blackberries though. Before you add them to the mixture, lay them out on a flat plate and freeze them; this'll bring the tiny fly maggots out and you can chuck the ones that are infected and only use the good ones.

Tis blackberry season where I live dude (Ireland), different variety which sweetens between August - September.
That is sound advice, I am always very wary of insects. Mold too.. Blackberrys are infamous for going moldy.

I think that means it needs more salt. Alum is also used to increase crispiness (it's in most big supermarkets, or cheaper off amazon).

That's a bad idea. Mead is delicious but you're stacking your respiratory depressants.

THC is soluble in alcohol but I'm not sure how it's affected by fermentation or if it'd kill the yeast.

Honestly if you just want to get fucked up I'd skip the alcohol altogether. If you just want a socially acceptable buzz or something delicious that also gets you drunk then brewing something delicious is highly recommended but if you want to take it further booze is more trouble than its worth.

If you add fruit to mead during the secondary fermentation stage it is called a melomel

The act of adding herbs to mead, both medicinal and flavorful, is also a common practice throughout history called an herbomel

the poppies and lotus in my case, or the weed in the other guys case would be added after primary fermentation has occurred and would not upset the process

In fact alcohols with a plethora of medicinal herbs added is a very common thing. Look at "mamajuana" from the Dominican or Underberg bitters from Germany

The herbomel I wish to create with lotus and poppy would be quite strong in alcoholic content and herbal content and would be intended to be drank like a shot instead of a glass

in fact I'll probably end up throwing a few more herbs in there for even greater effect when I actually get rolling on this

Yeah but that doesn't really change that you're stacking drugs which suppress your breathing functions. I have some bitters in my cupboard and that's fine. I do not dispute that it will taste nice.

I'm not really worried about the flavours. That said "quite strong" without distillation is going to be about 15% max so you can probably take a couple of shots without any risks. If you were drinking it by the glass and mixing opiates though you'd running the line between wasting good drugs and killing yourself. If the mead is just a tasty route of administration though, that sounds cool.

The flavour idea is great and I would drink the shit out of it. You could also just chuck some cinnamon in one batch.

Like I said it wouldn't be drank by the glassful at a time, just a shot or two for a nice medicinal effect

Also you may have taken my post as coming from some kid trying to get super drunk and nod balls off of this glorified tincture, which would be the incorrect assumption.

My right ankle was rebuilt after a severe car accident about 5 years ago, and I work 10-11 hour shifts on my feet. This makes pain management a huge factor in my life. I just want something to take a shot or two off when I get off work to get my pain level down.

I use kratom during the day to get through my shift but I want something less stimulating and more analgesic than kratom for when I get home. I am not going to be chug'a'luggin this shit.

Yeah, that's true. However you straightened me out and I get it. Plenty of people on this forum are or have been dumb about drugs and it's better safe than sorry though.

When my last hard drive died I lost the historic screencap that had the guy who had wine and heroin with some friends. He was surprised when one of them nearly died, her lips turned blue but hey, he put ice in her pussy. Not narcan, not help, just ice in her pussy. At this point by sheer luck she woke.

But anyway some people are REALLY fucking dumb. You are cool but i didn't know initially you know?
