Racking the sake (white stuff is rice/yeast/koji solids). Next step will be heat pasteurization. Old posts in extended.

quote [ SE: The magic of the Internet ]

Racking the sake. The white stuff is the rice/yeast/koji solids. The sake picture at the end is comparing the daiginjo sake with my sake. You’ll notice the daiginjo has a lot of flavor but it’s clear. This is because they use less of the outside of the rice, which creates a yellow color. (I just used table rice at 70-60% of grain remaining vs daiginjo using like 50-40%. Sake is usually filtered to remove the yellow tint, which reduces flavor. So the good stuff is usually clear, but retains lots of flavor.

Powering Democratic candidates, committees, parties, organizations, and c4s around the country.

quote [ Make Republican senators pay for confirming Brett Kavanaugh ]

Please do your homework before donating to the lilmookie hedge fund link above. There's been some sentiment that there's nothing we can do but vote. We can do more than vote. We can donate a dollar a race- that's about ten bucks.

Major Catholic magazine rescinds endorsement of Kavanaugh over sexual assault allegations

quote [ Brett Kavanaugh cites his Jesuit education to defend his integrity. Now a Jesuit magazine (America Magazine: Lilmookie's note) has disavowed his nomination. ]

. “For the good of the country and the future credibility of the Supreme Court in a world that is finally learning to take reports of harassment, assault and abuse seriously,” the editors concluded, “it is time to find a nominee whose confirmation will not repudiate that lesson.”
