Er is nog hoop voor de volgende generatie.
Btw de jeugd van tegenwoordig is prima, niets mis mee. Sociaal, empathisch en gericht op de groep.
Soms iets te lief en naïef, maar dat komt wel goed.
Waar gaat het naartoe met Nederland? Als het zo doorgaat kunnen de Nederlandse politici straks de Curaçaose collega's amper meer de wet voorlezen!
Made a yeast starter on Wednesday and was kinda glad I did; the yeast was not as strong as I'd expected. Started with 2 grams but after seeing no activity, I bumped that up to 10 grams. All in awe seeing all the bubbling in the bottle!
Then came the hard/laborious part on Saturday: dissolving sugar in hot water and boiling for a while, adding some citrus juice, sealing the container and letting it all come down to a temperature the yeast can cope with.
And then came the moment of truth on Sunday: the adding of the yeast starter to the batch. I was initially a bit disappointed because I saw no bubbling or foaming in the first 12 hours.
But a couple of hours ago I checked and I could definitely see continuous tiny bubbles surfacing!
Oh, the joy!
I guess the yeast had to take tame to adjust to the conditions of the mash.
No local fruit appeals to the imagination as does the illustrious Shimaruku or West Indian Cherry. If you notice cars at the side of the road in the weirdest places, about one or two weeks after some heavy rains, and people enthusiastically picking what looks like red berries, then it’s a safe bet it is Shimaruku they are after, which are either eaten on the spot or collected in cups, bags or whatever serves the purpose of taking this delicacy home.
All in all, not disappointed.
Only.........I dread that moment when I will have to clean out the coops this weekend :(
Just leaving it here for those who are looking for it.
Oh yeah and another thing
For all ya niggas that don't organize events
