How to make Tepache more Alcoholic

How to make Tepache more Alcoholic

How to make Tepache more Alcoholic?

  • Use an airlock in the brewing stage. Alcoholic fermentation is most efficient in the absence of oxygen.
  • Add some commercial yeast (brewer’s or baker’s yeast).
  • Add sugar (brown or white cane sugar). Yeast feeds on sugars to produce alcohol.
  • Maintain a consistent optimal brewing time and temperature.
  • Add Vodka or Rum (the lazy short cut)

In this article we will discuss all the necessary perquisites to give your fermented pineapple brew a bigger kick (up the alcohol level).

How to make Tepache more Alcoholic?

Firstly let’s look at how the forming of alcohol happens in a fermentation process.

In baking, yeast produces CO2 which makes the dough rise. In brewing fermentation the yeast feeds on sugars in the mix (cane sugar, sugars of fruits etc.) and then produces CO2 and alcohol. Alcoholic fermentation is most efficient in the absence of oxygen.

My explanation is aimed to be as simple as possible, cause not all of us are chemists. For a deeper look into the alcoholic fermentation process go to https://www.ck12.org/

1. Use an Airlock

The airlock allows the CO2 gas (Carbon dioxide) generated by the fermentation to escape without letting in any new air from the outside.

So why do we need to use and airlock when brewing Tepache or in any kind of brewing? Well the use of an airlock aids in upping the alcohol level.

Airlock for brewing Tepache

Should the emitted CO2 not be able to escape, the build up will cause the fermentation process to slow down and even stop, as CO2 saturates inside the brewing liquid.

To get maximum alcohol per volume in your brew it is thus of cardinal importance to enable the CO2 gas to escape without introducing contaminants from the outside air into the brew mixture. Alcoholic fermentation is most efficient in the absence of oxygen.

2. Add Yeast

Many Tepache and pineapple brewing recipes make use of the wild yeast naturally coming from the pineapple (in the pineapple skin as well as from matured pineapple). But this yeast only yields low percentages of alcohol.

When you add some bakers or brewers yeast, be it the dry or wet kind, you have stronger or more efficient yeast in the mix. This yields higher alcohol volume. But parallel to the added yeast you will need to add some cane sugar to the mix as well.

3. Add Cane Sugar

Okay so basically put, yeast feeds on sugars to produce alcohol (in a brewing process anyway). So in Tepache we have pineapple which contains it’s own sugars (glucose, fructose and sucrose). But cane sugar is a stronger and more pure in sugars (mostly sucrose). Thus adding cane sugar (white or brown) will give the yeast more to feed on and subsequently a higher alcohol volume can be produced.

Don’t add too much sugar though as this will bring about a foul taste which can only be counter acted via activated carbon filtration after brewing. And filtering Tepache this way will filter out most of the taste we aim for in the first place and it will end up more like Vodka.

4. Add Vodka/Rum in How to make Tepache more Alcoholic

By far the fastest way to make your pineapple brew more alcoholic is to simply add alcohol to it. And the most convenient most compatible alcohol would be Vodka as it blends very well with all fruit flavors.

Don’t add too much though, as then you will obliterate the whole taste. And I mean drink responsibly as every says.

Rum will also blend well with Tepache.

So here is a Simple Tepache and Vodka mix base, from where you can experiment further. Add flavorants to your liking:

How to make Tepache more Alcoholic add Vodka

5. Tepache and Vodka mix base

For Shooters

25 ml Vodka of your choice
25 ml Tepache
5 ml  Fresh lime juice (optional for more zest and flavor balance)

For Cocktail Mixing

25 ml Vodka of your choice
50 ml Tepache
5 ml  Fresh lime juice (optional for more zest and flavor balance)
50 ml Sweet vermouth wine or any sweet fortified wine

How to make Tepache more Alcoholic add Rum

6. Tepache and Rum mix base

For Shooters

25 ml Rum (white or gold)
25 ml Tepache
5 ml  Fresh lime juice (optional for more zest and flavor balance)

For Cocktail Mixing

25 ml Rum (white or gold)
25 ml Tepache
10 ml  Fresh lime juice (optional for more zest and flavor balance)
15 ml Honey
30 ml Fresh cream

Drops of Bitters also blends well with Tepache and makes for a very interesting subtle flavor.

Brewing Time in How to make Tepache more Alcoholic?

So looking at all the above mentioned information it would be easy to think “hey the longer I leave it to brew, the more alcohol I will get”. But sadly this is not the case.

The process of fermentation reaches a state of saturation. This happens when the yeast runs out of sugar to feed on. Time to reach this saturation point differs in the type of brewing mix, sugar content, type of yeast as well as the temperature of brewing.

In Tepache recipes using added sugar as well as recipes without added sugar, the saturation point of the yeast is approximately 2 days. Brewing more than 2 days will turn the Tepache into vinegar.

Brewing Temperature in How to make Tepache more Alcoholic?

Tepache ferments between 60-85°F (16-29°C), though for the most delicious tepache, aim for a temperature range between 75-80°F (24-26°C).

Lower temperature will slow the fermentation as the yeast acts slower at low temperature. Higher temperature will impose strain on the yeast and the yeast will die prematurely.

Alcohol Volume Approximations

To really know the alcohol volume in your pineapple brew, you will have to perform a test with a hygrometer.

  • Subtract the Original Gravity from the Final Gravity
  • Multiply this number by 131.25
  • The resulting number is your alcohol percent, or ABV%

Below is the figures you would be able to achieve in Tepache:

Without added sugar : 2 % per volume

With added sugar : 3.2 % per volume

Water not coming out of shower head properly

water not coming out of shower head properly

Why is water not coming out of shower head properly? – You step into the shower and open the shower valve/s and you expect steams of water to shower all over you. Yet no water comes out of the shower head. Bummer hey ?!

Page moved here from our other website “Shower Eden

So what causes water not coming out of shower head properly?

water not coming out of shower head properly

You need good water pressure as well as good water flow to have a nice shower.

 

Shower head is blocked.

You need to clean / unblock your shower head

You need:

1) a zippered bag or sandwich bag, heck you could even use a produce bag.

2) an elastic band, tie wrap or hair elastic (I’m all about options)

3) white vinegar (no options here, just plain white vinegar)

clean / unblock your shower head

Water not coming out of shower head properly: Fill your bag about half way with vinegar and fasten the bag to the shower head.  Do this by enclosing the mouth of the bag over the shower head and fastening it tightly in place with the tie.  Ensure the shower head is fully immersed in the vinegar, it needs to be in order for this to work.  Let’s say yours is on a hose (like mine), then I’d suggest taking the hose down and letting it sit in the tub.  Let this sit for 12 hours, or 24 if the shower head is really crusty and you have an alternative shower you can use.

When done, simply remove the bag (careful not to get any vinegar on your or worse, in your eye), and dump down the drain.  Yes, it will smell for a few minutes but shortly thereafter you’ll notice no smell.  If you want to be super sassy, throw some baking soda down your drain before you dump out the vinegar and you’ve now also cleaned our your drain in the process (go you!).  Let the shower head run hot water for a minute before getting in, you’ll marvel at your handiwork; it will run like new!

If you are having stubborn stain issues, you can soak the shower head even longer to see if it will blast away.  If you wish, you can use some baking soda and rub that in to the small nozzles with a cleaning toothbrush which will help break down any additional limescale and remove the discoloration.  Rinse it clean and you should notice a difference.  Keep in mind that brown discoloration is ugly (I believe this has to do with iron content in water), but is not harming the functionality of the shower head. Green and white ‘crust’ is what you really need to work on, calcium and limescale are the culprits in clogging your shower head.

 

Water not coming out of shower head properly – Blocked pipes

Water not coming out of shower head properly - Blocked pipes

Before using any of these repair methods, plumbers will check to make sure there isn’t a faulty fixture or blocked faucet aerator causing the trouble. After ascertaining that a clogged water supply pipes is the culprit, they can use these methods:

  1. Pipe removal and cleaning: The plumbers locate the pipes with the clogs and detach them from the rest of the plumbing. They then use powerful cleaners to thoroughly remove the deposits from the inside, then restore the pipe to place and test the water flow.
  2. Pipe replacement: This is the common solution for when pipe clogging has become extreme and/or the pipe is made from corroded older material. Plumbers will track down the pipes that are causing the trouble and remove them and put in new pipes, usually made of more corrosive-resistant material (copper, PEX, CPVC) and with a larger diameter to reduce water pressure.
  3. Air pressure: This is essentially the “plunger” for a water supply pipe. Plumbers attach an air hose line to the faucet affected by a local clog. They blast air pressure into the faucet, then run the water to watch for dislodged corrosion, calcite, etc.

 

Diverter Valve Malfunction

Diverter Valve Malfunction

Water not coming out of shower head properly – If you have a bathtub with a shower installed in there as well, then you also must have a diverter valve. This valve is located at the shower faucet and it changes the flow of water. So, when you pull the diverter valve to one side, the water will only flow through the faucet or the shower head, depending on the side.

Anyhow, the problem might be located there as well. Simply speaking, if the diverter valve is old or just malfunctioning, water will not come out of your shower head properly.

This can happen due to the fact that diverter valve is regulating the flow of water and if it doesn’t work properly, neither will your shower head.

How to make Slime Activator with Salt

How to make Slime Activator with Salt

How to make Slime Activator with Salt – This is our number one favorite on the slime activator list because it makes an awesome stretchy slime. It’s also more easily available for UK, Australian and Canadian residents.

How to make Slime Activator with Salt : SALINE SOLUTION 

This slime activator is also commonly used as a contact solution, but I highly recommend picking up the lesser expensive saline solution instead.

Also, on our slime activators list is salt. So how to make slime activator with salt. You have to make a saline solution first by mixing salt with water. To make this saline solution use one cup of water and half a teaspoon of salt and place this in a pan. Boil this for approximately fifteen minutes and keep the pan lid on to avoid evaporation. You will then need to allow the pan to cool until it is at room temperature. Finally, carefully pour this solution into a bottle and jar which has a lid. You are now ready to start combining it with the glue to make some gooey fun stuff!

How to make Slime Activator with Salt – Salt is a good option as an activator for slime as it is readily available and it is also cheap to purchase. The volume of salt that you can purchase can produce a large quantity of slime which is useful if you need to make a large amount or if you plan to make it on a few occasions.

HOW TO MAKE SALINE SOLUTION SLIME RECIPE

YOU WILL NEED:

  • 1/2 cup Clear or White PVA School Glue
  • 1 tablespoon Saline Solution (must contain boric acid and sodium borate)
  • 1/2 cup of Water
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • Food coloring, confetti, glitter, and other fun mix-ins (CHANGE FOR RECIPE)

How to make Slime Activator with Salt

 

STEP 1:  In a bowl mix 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup of glue well to combine completely.

How to make Slime Activator with Salt

STEP 2: Now’s the time to add (color, glitter, or confetti)! Remember when you add color to white glue, the color will be lighter. Use clear glue for jewel toned colors!

BAKING SODA SLIME

STEP 3: Stir in 1/4- 1/2 tsp baking soda.

Baking soda helps to firm and form the slime. You can play around with how much you add but we prefer between 1/4 and 1/2 tsp per batch. I get asked all the time why do you need baking soda for slime. Baking soda helps to improve the firmness of the slime. You can experiment with your own ratios!

This slime recipe is also called BAKING SODA SLIME!

STEP 4: Mix in 1 tbsp saline solution and stir until slime forms and pulls away from sides of the bowl.   This is exactly how much you will need with the Target Sensitive Eyes brand, but other brands may differ slightly!

If your slime still feels too sticky, you may need a few more drops of saline solution. As I mentioned above, start by squirting a few drops of the solution onto your hands and kneading your slime longer. You can always add but you can’t take away.  Saline solution is preferred over contact solution.

STEP 5:  Start kneading your slime! It will appear stringy at first but just work it around with your hands and you will notice the consistency changes. You can also put it in a clean container and set it aside for 3 minutes, and you will also notice the change in consistency!

 

SLIME TIP:   We always recommend kneading your slime well after mixing. Kneading the slime really helps to improve its consistency. The trick with this slime is to put a few drops of the saline soluti9n onto your hands before picking up the slime.

You can knead the slime in the bowl before you pick it up as well. This slime is stretchy but can be stickier. However, keep in mind that although adding more activator (saline solution) reduces the stickiness, and it will eventually create a stiffer slime.

BAKING SODA SLIME

You will love how easy and stretchy this saline slime is to make, and play with too!  Once you have your desired slime consistency, time to have fun!  How big of a stretch can you get without the slime breaking?

SLIME TIPS AND TRICKS on How to make Slime Activator with Salt

  • Baking soda helps to firm and form the slime.  You can experiment with your own ratios!
  • BAKING SODA SLIME TIP: Clear glue slime usually doesn’t need quite as much baking soda as white glue slime!
  • The saline solution is the slime activator and helps the slime to get its rubbery texture! Be careful, adding too much saline solution can make for a slime that’s too stiff and not stretchy!
  • Give this slime a fast stir to activate the mixture. You will notice the thickness change as you stir it.  You will also notice the volume of your mixture changes as you whip it up.
  • Slime is awesome for tactile sensory play, but make sure to wash hands and surfaces after making and playing with slime.
  • Make a few batches in different colors and swirl them together as shown in the cover photo or below! Think of what other color combinations your kids would enjoy. Slime making is only limited by the imagination of the hands creating it!

Chicken soup revisited: calcium content of soup increases with duration of cooking

Ingredients for Chicken Soup from Bones in Slow Cooker

  • Roast chicken carcass with some meat attached (on the wings, back, etc.)
  • Any aromatics you desire (you know, the usual stuff including garlic, herbs, onion, carrots, ginger, etc.)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup soy sauce (Christina Tosi likes Kikkoman)
  • 1/3 to 2/3 cup apple cider or apple juice
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Directions for Chicken Soup from Bones in Slow Cooker

  • 1. To make the Leftover Roast Chicken Soup in your slow cooker, see the Slow Cooker Variation above. To make the Leftover Roast Chicken Soup on your stove top, combine the chicken carcass and any residual meat and desired aromatics in a large stock pot (5- to 8-quart capacity) and fill the pot with water so the chicken is fully submerged. Set over the lowest of low heat, lid that puppy 3/4 of the way so the water can evaporate a little bit but not too much, and leave it for at least 6 hours, skimming any scum that accumulates on the surface of the stock but leaving any puddles of fat. [Editor’s Note: Christina Tosi leaves the stock simmering overnight. You may or may not wish to do the same. We guess it depends on your level of risk taking and whether your homeowner’s insurance is up to date.]
  • 2. Remove the pot from the heat. Your kitchen smells amazing, right? Strain the liquid from the chicken into another large pot and let the solids rest in the strainer. Walk away for a little while. Brush your teeth. Brush your hair. The chicken should be cool enough to handle at this point.
  • 3. Using your hands, separate the chicken meat from the bones, aromatics, and gelatin. Don’t be grossed out—put your best farm girl face on, roll up your sleeves, and get to work. This should yield 2 to 3 cups light and dark meat, depending on how much chicken you ate the night before. Toss the bones and stuff in the trash. Add the shredded chicken to the pot with the broth. (You can cover and refrigerate the soup until dinnertime.)
  • 4. Bring the soup to a gentle simmer. If you want, you can clean out your fridge by throwing in a handful of baby carrots, chopped onion, Brussels sprouts, spinach, or whatever else you’ve got languishing in your vegetable bin. It’ll taste awesome. Simmer until the soup is warmed through and any vegetables are tender.
  • 5. Stir in the soy sauce, apple cider, and black pepper to taste and ladle into bowls.
