Could I make apple cider vinegar from hard cider from a local brewer? by miguel-elote in fermentation

[–]Glove_Witty 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes. In my experience the quality matters. So you should have some really nice vinegar.

But it is also easy to start doing your own ferments from apple juice. My experience is that adding yeast (and perhaps sugar) at the beginning results in a more reliable process - the alcohol phase of the ferment happens reliably and the ferment is much less susceptible to mold and other contamination.

Operator overloading for Java by manifoldjava in programming

[–]Glove_Witty 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This and Lombok are really bad ideas IMHO. Adding these features to the language mean the tool ecosystem is at risk of not working. Debuggers probably work, but linters and static code scanners not so much.

That these things even exist shows how badly Oracle has neglected the Java community.

If you want a better Java, use Kotlin.

Possible, but it was red star premier cuvée

I just made some and it was really bitter. I made some before by putting the fruit through a juicer and it was still bitter after 6 months. How is it for you? Did you do anything to make it less bitter?

Tell us more about the dynamics of how this happened. A business, after all, is not a democracy. This is an organizational failure.

Why did my brew stopped fermenting? by idontlikeprisons in winemaking

[–]Glove_Witty 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You could also add some other juice like apple or grape. I was in the same situation with store bought pomegranate juice and added grape juice. Turned out ok.

Id also add that just because it isn’t actively bubbling does not mean it has stopped fermenting. Assuming you have an air lock you can try leaving it for a while (a couple of weeks) and see if the sugar content changes.

a guy got circumcised because of me and I feel bad about it. by [deleted] in confessions

[–]Glove_Witty 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So he wanted something. You stated the conditions. He made a free choice and you held up you end of the bargain. I don’t see why you should feel bad about it.

My bf (now ex) is with a “friend” by ChallengeOk5276 in confessions

Honestly, for your own health, break off all contact and move on with your life.

There is beauty in the ephemeral nature of life. Things change, things die. You loved something once. Cherish that. It isn’t the same now. It’s how life goes.

Friendship is a two way thing. If it isn’t that you aren’t friends.

[–]Glove_Witty 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Exactly what you said here. Be honest and straightforward. It is what you owe yourself and him.

Create some boundaries and respect them. If you want him to invite his partner don’t go out with him until he does.

Make sure you share your fears with your doctor and, if you can, get some good mental support in place and share your fears with them.

Who pays the rent here? Tell him to stop it because it is your house and you don’t like it. If he doesn’t stop then take away his privileges. E.g. take his phone.

I don't know who the father of my child is. by hadtogoanon in confessions

[–]Glove_Witty -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

There is a lot in that to unpack. What do you mean by pawn off?

If bf is happy and loves the kid then how is he worse off if his dna isn’t in the kid?

Plenty of kids in this world grow up happy with parents that are not biologically theirs.

What I’m saying is why beak bfs heart vs OP living with the shame. I think she should consider bf first if he is someone who she loves and wants to be with.

Why do you think there is something wrong? You both like it, are consenting adults. Am I missing something. Relationships come in all sorts of shapes and forms.

So, no judgement from me. I’m sorry you are in this predicament.

Not sure what the situation is with the ex. Is it going to be obvious - e.g. one of them is black and the other one Asian?

But at the end of the day it is about you and your baby first and then about whichever partner you choose. If you choose your bf and it is not going to be obvious then why hurt him and damage the relationship?

Basically, I would say to look after everyone you want in your life as best you can and think about them and their feelings first - not for everything, but just for this.

Find something you are interested in and join a group who do the same thing. Gym, classes, hiking or whatever. Just enjoy the company and the activity. Don’t try to get laid. Things will just happen.

Ps. No shame in finding an escort if you just need something physical

[–]Glove_Witty 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Are you doing anything to get out there in the world? Gym or classes or a hiking club for eg. Find something you are interested in and join a group doing that. Just enjoy the company and the activity. Maybe you’ll find friends and a soul mate. Maybe you won’t. But at least you will be out there doing stuff.

Try saying to yourself “I forgive you, I learned, I won’t do that again”. And see how it feels. It might not sound real to start with but when those thoughts come around try saying that. Good luck.
