Consistently sour shots

2021.12.03 07:58 snarboy_ Consistently sour shots

Not to beat a dead horse with a stick with this question, but I'm a beginner in brewing espresso and I've been consistently pulling sour shots. I'm using the Gaggia Classic Pro with a VST 18g basket and the JX-Pro hand grinder. I've installed the 9 bar OPV mod as well. I've tried troubleshooting quite a bit but I feel like I'm missing something since the taste is consistent throughout different doses, beans (medium roast), and grinds. I've looked into buying a PID since I struggle with temp surfing, but it's out of my budget right now.
I've tried 18g, 17g, 16g, and 15g for dosing. I've had better luck with 17g, which doesn't result in a watery layer on top of the puck after extraction.
•17g in, 34g out, goal time 27-30secs. Grind 1 full rotation, 6 whole numbers, 0 clicks (1.6.0). Followed by 1.6.4, 1.6.3, 1.6.2, 1.5.8, 1.5.6, and 1.5.4 -result: sour, unbalanced/unpleasant taste
The best tasting, most balanced of the results was when extraction took 47 seconds (way longer than I set my goal for), and it took about 9 seconds to begin dripping (average is between 3-5 seconds).
I've been struggling with under extracting for the most part, and my shots often run 18-25 secs before reaching 34g.
Extraction has slowed considerably since grinding finer and applying more pressure in tamping, but taste is still sour, albeit less so.
My pucks are pretty dark and not wet, they stay together if not cracking into large pieces. The top sometimes looks wet or has a light imprint of the grouphead.
I'm pretty sure I'm under extracting, but I have no idea what I'm leaving out or overlooking. If anyone could offer some insight that would be great.

2021.12.03 07:58 iirrational Finally found the courage to leave

I met my long term boyfriend here on Reddit way back 2019. At that time I wasn't looking for a relationship since I just got out of one. We clicked right away. He seemed like an ideal guy. He had a lot of ambition and I admired him for knowing what he wanted to do in life.
We moved in together after a few months of dating. I was looking for a new place while he wanted to leave his family to learn how to be independent. Things were going well for the first few months until we had some disagreements. The thing is, when you live with somebody, you really start to see what kind of person they are and what habits they have.
Those disagreements became constant. We fought often and made up eventually. It was a rollercoaster ride. Fighting and making amends is pretty much normal for me in a relationship. He didn't seem to agree though.
Eventually I found out that he cheated on me. Everytime I asked why, his reason would be different. Mostly it was about our fights and how he felt that I was enjoying him "making habol" to me, if you will. In my case, I didn't know he saw it that way. I just thought he really wanted to make things up with me that's why he was usually the first to approach me after a fight. I enjoyed getting lambing from him.
Regardless of what happened, I still gave him a chance. But every chance I gave I felt it becoming more useless to be around him. We were okay at some point but we had another fight because I expressed my doubts towards him. I started to realize that any minor inconvenience he had with me, he would relapse and contact his flings again.
In the end, I didn't feel like I had any sense of security from him or have any peace of mind that he wasn't going to do it again. Even if he said he loved me, I grew numb towards it. I didn't feel loved by him anymore because you don't hurt the person you love. I could have hurt him the way he hurt me but I didn't because nobody deserves to feel that kind of pain.
I know I have my part that contributed to our downfall. I should have adjusted myself to the things he didn't like about me, but I guess it was too late to act because I felt like I already lost him. It started to hurt everytime I looked at him and realizing that I couldn't make this person happy on my own. It felt like I was in a competition with somebody I didn't know. It became mentally draining for me to try to make him happy because I was scared to lose him. It felt like we were just in a never ending loop and the only way for it to stop was for one of us to let go.
Letting go of somebody you love has been one of the hardest decisions I've made. I still wanted to fix things. I still wanted to be with him. I still had plenty of things to do with him. But I couldn't bear what was happening between us anymore. That's why I mustered all the courage I had left in me to leave.
To those who plan or even think of betraying their s/o, please reconsider. You don't know how much pain you can cause them. It's better to leave them and save them from questioning their self worth.
To those who went through similar scenarios, I applaud you. I know all of you came out of that dark cloud you were once under. I look forward to escaping from mine.
If you made it all the way here, thank you so much for reading.

2021.12.03 07:58 ozziezombie What is your favourite way/challenge to play solo?

Hey! I've beaten up the game through and through many times and grew bored of it several times. Yet, from time to time, I find myself enjoying the game anew when set up with some weird quirks.
I've been playing a lot of "max tribes on smallest possible map" for instant chaos, but it did get tiring and samey after a while, and I never could get a good score because of other tribes killing each other before I could reach them. Like, come on, people - make love, not war. At least until I get near my superunit.
Now I'm trying "perfection domination" (though IDK if this isn't just playing for the high score) where I try to go versus three opponents, which on average lets us all get three cities (+ the capital) before any confrontation. If lose ANYTHING - I restart. Lost a unit? Instant restart. Enemy extended their border where you wanted to set up a perfect dock network? Restart. That ruin treasure you were about to step on with your warrior has now a veteran swordsman from the enemy army? Restart.
It makes early game decisionmaking really tight. Do I want to explore one square further into another tribe's biome or will there be two enemy units to delete me instantly? Do I rush treecutting before I get all nearby cities for most value? Can I afford not to purchase a unit this turn to get a clutch tech on the next one?
I don't feel confident enough to play online and I'm worried I could not commit fully enough not to be slowing down the play, or worse - being kicked after a good start. :P What are your ways to spice up the play?

2021.12.03 07:58 GiantToiletPaper Streak 2 No sobre la creatura misteriosa que se llama 'el humano'

Me gustaría esribir sobre nos humanos como los alienígenas pero hoy prefiero escribiendo sobre cosas un poco más cotidianas (no es decir que no he pensado todos los días sobre el concepto que humanos han sido las alienígenas todo el tiempo jaja).
Es la mañana tarde y todavía estoy muy relajado porque hoy día tengo ni clases de colegio ni trabajo. No obestante tengo algunas tareas y en general me había hecho más estrés que sería necesito. Ya estoy pensando sobre las tareas de la semana que viene, pero también sé que no hay nada que tenería que temer en serio.
Me esta chichado mucho a la hora que tengamos (subjuntivo?) que hacer un test de saliva para tener aceso a ofertas de ocio ahi. Me encanta mucho hacer deporte y he notado que todo el esfuerzo con los tests me esta detenido un poco (lo que problemente es exactamente la meta con todas estas reglas y restricciones). Que levanta la pregunta como se refera a la pandemía habitualmente en los países castellanos - Covid, Corona o un término completamente diferente?
Entonces, pienso que lo es todo por el hoy día y estoy deseado a todos que tengáis un día bueno con mucha sol (que al invierno desgraciadamente no se muestra mucho ahi).

2021.12.03 07:58 emilyhollandaise Slightly magical novel about boy whose emotions control weather

I read this book like six or seven years maybe in high school and remember not enjoying it buuut I’d love to revisit and see if my opinion has changed. Adult/young adult, not a series, and maybe magical realism-ish?
It started in a hospital with a baby being born and it was snowing outside. As the baby cries more it starts to become a snowstorm. This might have killed the parents, I’m not completely sure about that, but you can infer that the weather is influenced by the baby’s emotions. Then the book skips ahead in time and is from a girl’s perspective. She encounters the boy, she sees him conjure a thunderstorm and they later meet in a forest I think? The boy is also good with animals and not very good with humans.
Any tips or leads would be so appreciated! I’ve been googling this plot the whole year with no luck.
