True, but it doesn't need any gas. It runs on Rakia, of which I have plenty
I’m just getting caught up on your adventures, but so far gorgeous views, great trips reports, and of course awesome taste in gear. Thanks for posting.
Thanks, I am glad you like it!
There will be much more once this is over
We call those a discata here in the states and they are great to cook on. There is the commercially available Skottle that a lot of guys pick up. It's too spendy for me. I've been keeping my eyes peeled for an old field disc sitting somewhere I could liberate a few discs from and make my own.
It is made from a disc similar to these ones :
They are very cheap here and sometimes can be found for less than one $.
Yep! I can't find any used around here because this isn't really a farming community. The new ones are nearly $40 by the time you pay shipping...
Wow, that's a lot! I hope you find something used as cooking in that thing is a joy and the food tastes amazing.
This is how we make it
It starts from more than 60% and when it reaches 40% it goes in for another turn, to reach a higher alcohol %.
Here is the second turn, more than 60% at the beginning and the measuring device has fallen deep down as it measures up to 60%.
The total result is around 30 liters of strong alcohol. I will make it around 42% with distilled water.
This still is great - when the Rakia gets 40%, for the second turn you just shut a valve and it gets brewed again. When you release the valve, it starts to leak again at a higher %.
With older stills you needed to collect the weak stuff and pour in in the still at another time. This newer stuff saves a lot of time.
MTB + dirt roads = escape from Babylon
I am in love with this bike and its large cassette. I have never been able to climb such steep hills as I can do now.
26-36 in front and 11-42 in the rear.
Summer is here!
I love the 3 HM.
I haven't posted for a while... I have been riding like crazy, dropped 17 kg thanks to the mtb. The summer was full of adventures!
Just wondering about you the other day !!!!! Hoping the 'Rona hadn't got'ya but looks like you have been having a great time of it !!! Glad to see it as i have missed the pics !!!!!
Hey Andy! I hope everything is OK with you!
My parents got the corona, but thanks God it is now gone and they are ok. Luckiky my mother is a doctor and here home treatment is pretty much the only way to survive it, as if you go to a hospital no one will take care of you. What I find very interesting is that the exact same steroid that was used on my cat (he had cat corona when he was little) is doing wonders on humans too.
But enough about that virus, f@@k him... I am getting married next Saturday and in a month I will become a father Life is good.
Glad to hear all is well with you !!!!! Congratulations on both the wedding and fatherhood !!!!!!! That’s a double whammy is quick succession. I can tell you are excited !!!!
Yeah! I also started a new job, working from home and not having to be in an office and can manage my own time better. It is a rough year for sure, but it also has its pluses. Before the covid it was almost impossible (here) to find a work from home option, now it is quite the opposite and that suits me fine. I am working US business hours, the perfect time for checking the forum
Starting the winter preparation for my grandmother.
15 m3 are waiting to be splitted, what a great workout!
This Fiskars is an absolute beast! This is its 15th season and it is as strong as a new one. Amazing tools for real world hard use.
