I'm not super rich, but I try to tip at least a dollar per drink and at least a fiver total in extra bits if I have money. Sometimes if I'm pinched it's just a dollar per drink. Of course, if I was ordering elaborate cocktails or something difficult I'd probably tip more, but it's usually just beer and shots.

How do you decide your tipping habits, /hooch/? Assume you like the bartender.

i dont like places that wont let me open a tab. if they're making me pay cash for every single drink and expecting a dollar for every bottle they pop open i'll probably leave after 2 drinks. if it's a civilized establishment and i can close out a tab i'll tip 20-30% depending on service

Had a week detox from drinking (I've been a maintanence drinker for years but started not being able to maintain my level & getting innapropriately pissed & was about to get fiired), ended up getting pneumonia & slept through most of it so wasn't that bad. I got offered a knock off beer last night & ended up going home & staying up to 5am drinking a bottle, It's taken me years to develop noticibly uncomfortable physical withdrawals but does getting drunk once put me back into the withdrawal stage? feeling sick as shit today not sure if it's the liquor or just the pneumonia but I'm having a drink now to see if it'll help.

A week of detox isn't enough. Try at least a month.

Pretty much if you drink you suddenly you previous larger amounts.

But 3 days, definitely, days nights whatever. If you are really into it, less amounts, you likely would still feel pretty crappy. Even something close to recognizably like
withdrawals. It can and does get worse for people who drink a lot and for a long time.

OP, after my first 30 days in rehab I came home to a 750ml of whiskey waiting for me.

The first two hours I was drunk as fuck.

After that it was blackout and I woke up the next day on my friends recliner to a puke crusted hoody.

A month is best.

Prison Hooch

File: 1572725467840.png -(11416415B / 10.89MB, 2320x3088) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size. Prison Hooch
When I was around age 12, living with my grandmother, I once attempted to make alcohol in secret with minimal knowledge. I cleaned a 5 gallon plastic milk jug, attempted to sterilize it with semi-boiling water, then I added three large cartons of strawberry nectar along with several cups of pure cane sugar dissolved into semi-syrup by boiling the sugar in water. I didn't measure anything properly, didn't consider the addition of a yeast culture, and then capped the jug with a balloon. I hid the jug for several weeks, and when the balloon would seem too large I would release the pressure and reseal it quickly. Eventually I noticed that indeed began to smell like alcohol, so one day when my uncle visited, I showed it to him, and asked him what he thought, what I need to do next, ect. He thought it was funny, and said I was trying to make "prison hooch". He said I would need to eventually strain it through panty hose or coffee filters, something I couldn't do in secret. Eventually gramma found out about it. She, too, thought it was funny, and put it up on a high shelf. After a month I asked when we could try it. I remember her and mom opening it and laughing, since it smelt strongly of alcohol. Eventually they told me that it was unsafe to drink, because there could have toxins that grew in the mixture, etc. They poured it out.

My question is, if I were to attempt to make rough hootch again using nectar, would anyone care enough to share any tips, such as what yeast culture I should use, any risks to consider, any links to share? Thanks.

You will have to measure how much sugar is in the nectar, it might be written on the carton or whatever. To get 10~14% alcohol you need at least 1KG of sugar.
If you put too much sugar content it will overload the yeast and kill it or just take forever to brew.

Here's my recipes (1 month brewing time):
1KG Honey + 4L + 2 Bread Yeast + Handful of Raisins = 10~14% Alcohol
1KG Sugar + 5L + 2 Bread Yeast + Handful of raisins = 14% Alcohol

There are natural cleaners for homebrew like 1-STEP , PBW, or Oxiclean. You need to clean it thoroughly or you just end up making something that makes you puke. Pitch the yeast when the mix is lukewarm and always keep it brewing at room temperature for best results (you can wrap it with a blanket or towel and keep it near a heater)

My favorite recipe for a fast drink: amazingmead.wordpress.com/2012/02/24/orange-spiced-short-mead-drinkable-in-3-weeks/

You can do it in secret btw, i dont know how much gunk the starberry nectar produces, but with pure sugar straining is not necessary. I usually let the yeast settle to the bottom and drink it straight.

when I was in prison we made hooch using our sugar packets, orange juice, oranges.

just put it all in a garbage bag and let it sit for a few days.

basically if you don't use yeast, you are relying on ambient bacteria that does the same thing. from what I understand these bacterias can't make it as alcoholic as brewers yeast can and also contribute some other crap as well.

the reason it doesn't kill you or make you sick is because once it gets above a certain alcohol percentage, the other bacteria can't survive

>the reason it doesn't kill you or make you sick is because once it gets above a certain alcohol percentage, the other bacteria can't survive
This is mostly true. It's more because of the acidity than the alcohol. If the pH is low enough (acidic enough), then there's virtually no pathogenic bacteria that can grow. So if you're starting with a neutral (pH7) brew, then over time, the alcohol and other metabolites lower the pH to around 4, which is safe to drink.

With the orange juice, I'd guess it's always acidic enough to be safe. When people get sick from pruno, it's usually because they're starting with something not acidic enough, like bread or potatoes.

It's just the "bottled in bond" version, basically aged a minimum of 4 years, produced in one state "under government supervision" allegedly, all the other rules of bourbon, plus being 100 proof. On the surface you'd think it's just some marketing label but I've become a big fan of the bottled in bond stuff

I'm a fan of higher proof whiskeys and I rarely buy anything under 43% myself. So to me the EW white label is one of the best bang for your buck whiskeys available. I'm about to pour some of the single barrel after I finish this glass of rittenhouse

Yea, it's the opposite of what they may think of heavy drinkers. You do miss a lot if you drink pretty heavily. Even if you work and keep things basically together.

I started thinking some time back where, all these people who live day to day without getting hammered, it's gotta far more simple to live without being a drinkard. Accomplish much more even if they aren't really doing much more
than working and just living their lives.

I can't shred waves if I get plastered every other day. So yes, if your passion is something like surfing you can't be an hardcore alcoholic. Or maybe you can if really young, like, in your early 20s... but even in that case your balance would be shit compared to a sober well trained guy (unless you have godlike genetics I guess)

SO, the colorado laws of selling alcohol has changed. One can buy high strength beer in convince stores. Grocery. So, people have not actually caught on to this. I think. Or
have they, by now.

Anyway, SR was selling for $1.25 a 40. That is like cheap. At a convince store.

A case, 12. Would be around, 15 bones. Normally would be around 2.78 to 3 bucks a 40 at a liquor store.

So in my travels, at state parks, etc. People are kinda drunken, (like in the past) happy, but now.

Dude, I left a few things, did you see a beer and a cell phone? Yea, right there. Ohh thanks man.

So troublesome, 3.2 beer does mostly nothing for most. Which is allowed in most parks.
But now, enforcing law for possessing or consuming over 3.2 in some public places seems pretty, umm. Difficult to enforce. I casually mean beer.


Remember cops in the 80s, technology. People used to dump 6% beer into 3.2 cans. To try to fool authorities, and police would check the content. Just and old trick.

Not sure of the long term effects of 'full strength beer being sold at gas stations, convince store, supermarkets. But, it seems, authorities have kinda lowered their authority, rational
of adults drinking higher-test beer.

My overall point is, higher test beer, is over whelming the 3.2 beer market. One can still get coors light, just as well. The law, has taken many years to pass in Colorado. To sell high strength beer in supermarkets. Convince stores. Well see how it goes.

side from SR, ST. Ides if still around is nice.

Plastic in beer containers is nothing new. It's been around since the 70s in the US. I actually find it, in Reserve even better to manage than glass. In the corporate world, it is cheaper to produce, shipping, weight etc.

As for the whiny shatter proof things. Most parks and beaches do not allow glass containers.

I hear ya. Cops took my license and basically bent it. I told the lady iding me, oh the police did that. I was under no reason to be IDd to begin with by police. She got this attitude. Said, Like well you shouldn't have been doing that. Doing what??? I queried, she replied, what made them bend it.
I asked what made them bent it. She kinda backed down on the attitude. It is unlawful to deliberately distort state issued identification.

Cops (some) are not all very level-headed. And people who side with police no matter what, criminal cops or whatever, whine when they simply get a ticket for a viable traffic violation.

A neighbor got pulled over by a cop neighbor. The stopee was part of a what one might call a in part rogue community policing network. That was is encouraged by police in a manner which what one may call nazi-like leaning in their mentality.

She was apparently was like, but you know me, the police officer said, yea I know who you are. That is desirable diligence in police work.

Another groups of cops, mutilated my Liscence. Another literally stole my Drivers License, and other legal items needed to prove that one has privileges for certain uses. Which all were costly, time/resouce consuming to replace.

One has to have an id for financial transactions, etc. This is designed in practice in taking away ones identity.

As for denying an expired ID at a store or business, may be store policy. But should not be part of
practice of discrimination.

It has happened in voting, oh you need this extra form to vote here. Your at the wrong polling station. Flat flat lying to disparage voting. Voting, oh your drivers license expired in, "yea since I was too old to drive anymore." "But that's me," "right there what you are holding in your hand."

Police will, have to accept expired id as a valid form of ID. I believe this had been through the court
system that an expired Id is an acceptable form of ID as far a law enforcement is concerned. Unless there is significant (realistic) doubt as to the identity matching the ID.

In your words, yes, this it is still in practice. A recent story, not-fake-news a store employee asked for quote 'documents' the words were 'documents' for a Latino family to prove they were actually natural born American, "us Citizens" to be allowed to merely purchase groceries.

I may be rambling, but, this is realty that exists.

I can't get drunk enough without getting sick anymore. I have 6 beers and end up with the worst acid reflux the next day, headaches, whatever. This morning I actually threw up after 6 beers from last night, and I hardly got drunk. What gives?

I’m just going to drink a glass of that cut with some grape fruit juice and call it a night. Was drinking margaritas earlier so the salt isnt too bad.

Oh ok. The EBT thing makes sense

Well regular wine can be had for $3 and cooking wine is mostly nasty. I bought it once because I wanted to start cooking with wine like the real cooks do and I made a couple dishes that were acceptable but the wine really just sucked. $3 wine can actually be good. The thing about cheap wine, is it's still tasty, it just doesn't have the nuances that expensive wines have. But "cooking wine" is usually funky tasting

And if you're looking for high proof, look for the sherry in the foreign bottles, you might be pleased

I decided to mix my thrice weekly bottle of wine with an equal part of orange juice. I'm not nearly as drunk as I would have been if I had drunk it straight. What gives? Does ethanol react with something in orange juice that renders it ineffective? Is it because of the volume of liquid? Is there something in orange juice that counteracts the ffects of alcohol? Sugar?

Hello /hooch/,

My father is 63 and has been an alcoholic / depressed for a long time. I've been away from home for years but since a few months I've moved in with him and its really getting to me to see him like this. Living in filth, talking absolute nonsense, eating garbage or forgetting to eat, passing out in his chair at his computer, etc.

He knows he has a problem, and we've talked about it but he always seems to fall back to the drink. Most weekends he'll do nothing but play those shitty facebook games and drink red wine, when he's having a bad day he'll drink, when he's having a good day (like today) he'll "reward" himself with a drink. His mind justifies its self that whenever he's drinking "its not his fault", any occasion is good to drink.

I have tried drinking with him (just made him drink more), giving him weed (didnt like it), and being supportive but nothing seems to be working. I've cleaned his house from top to bottom by myself to try and give him a nice environment but he messed it all up again in a matter of days. He's asking me to get him some MDMA but I really don't think thats a good idea. He is seeing a therapist for his depression, but I'm not sure that he's really getting much help with his alcohol addiction.

Recently I have been getting harsher with him, I'm at a point where I am TIRED of seeing him like this, of living in filth, and I find myself openly getting mad at him for his problem. I know it probably doesn't help but I feel in some sense he needs a serious wake-up call as to how his drinking is affecting me. But having said all that, I find now that he's still drinking, just hiding it from me.

So /hooch/, any of you know how I can approach this? Any former alcoholics ever had someone say / do something that helped them quit? Can any current alcoholics shed any light on how my dad's mind might be working? Is this all a lost cause?

Thanks

Alcohol just takes your fucking soul if you straight up do it for more than like 15 years. Once you get to where he’s at, you’ve lost. Learn from his mistakes of just ride it out with him.

You need to try to find whats hurting him. What is he avoiding? Some people are past saving. However, maybe he has a chance if you can find the root of why he drinks. It might not be pain/trauma but simply he likes the way it feels. Addiction is a motherfucker but there is always that precursor of reason. Look for that and help kill it while not enabling him.

good luck man.

Shit OP that's a rough hand to play with. First of all I applaud you for trying all you have so far. Addiction is hard because it doesn't stop until the individual wants it. It has to come from an endogenous desire, nothing external can genuinely affect it. He has to want it for himself. It seems like he wants to drink more than he wants to do other stuff. Does he have any dreams or goals he hasn't done yet?

One thing to keep in mind is that he may not quit entirely, and that's OK! Cutting back will still be better than continuing to drink heavily. I think your approach is wise, trying to get involved in his life. The more time you all spend doing something that isn't drinking, the less drinking he'll be doing, frankly. I think it's probably important to not make it an all-or-nothing scenario. That makes change sound hard. Just try to incorporate new activities into his life where you can do stuff together that isn't explicitly drinking. It's kind of like substitution. Best of luck to you man.

Best/cheapest way to get as drunk as possible? I live in Canada where the price of alcohol is ridiculous and it's becoming untenable to drink every night but I can't stop and don't want to. As long as the shit won't make me go blind or anything then I'm up for making it, not bothered by taste just looking to get the highest alcohol content.

I make my own shit everyday, sometimes even 2 or 3 times a day. Usually I just eat stuff and make my own shit.

Cheap ass hooch. I use to drink this shit when the unemployment checks dried up.

  1. Find a large container. 5 gallon bucket. 5 gallon water jug. One gallon glass containers work too, but the larger the better imo. Saves on yeast money. Hell, you can make this in a toilet or bathtub if you don't mind not using a gas exchange system.
  2. [assuming 5 gallons] Go to the grocery store. Buy 15 pounds of mixed berries, the cheap shit is okay. Buy 5lb sugar. Buy yeast. Brewer yeast leads to better results but any yeast will lead to getting drunk.
  3. Find a balloon.
  4. Clean the bucket. With rubbing alcohol, 91%.
  5. Mix the berries, yeast, sugar, and water in the bucket. Put the balloon over the lid of the bucket. If using an actual bucket than get creative with a straw.
  6. When you notice the balloon is full of CO2 than take the balloon off, let the gas out, and put the balloon back on.
  7. Wait six weeks.
  8. The top layer is going to be unappetizing. Use a large spoon or something to scoop it up and throw that out.
--- Warning --- Maybe bacteria was growing in that bucket instead of yeast. Use good judgement on what you put into your body.

Bam. You have five gallons of hobo wine. Mix with coca-cola if it tastes too raw for you. You won't go blind, but if you were drinking bacteria instead of yeast you might get sick.

The frozen berries are optional, but you should use something for flavor even if it's just rice or some bread. I've started with this system and upgraded over the years as I found cheap/free parts. I'm now outputting legit good homebrew beer at a rate of three kegs/month.
