How to make OHN
Prepare Angelica acutiloba, Cinnamon bark, Licorice, garlic and ginger (2:1:1:1:1). Garlic and ginger are supplementary ingredients.
The three main ingredients are sold in dry state.Put the three main ingredients in tree separate jars and fill up with rice wine or beer so that they are completely soaked. Fill up2/3 of the jars. The amount of rice wine should be such that it fully wet the ingredients but not too much. Let it absorb moisture for 1 or 2 days.
Garlic and ginger don't need wetting process. Crush them and put in seperate jars.
Add brown sugar to the five jars equivalent to the weight of ingredients ( =plant= rice wine).
Cover with porous paper and tie it with rubber band. Leave for 3-5 days for fermentation.
After fermentation, pour distilled liquor into the remaining 1/3 space of the five jars. Stir with stick.
For long storage lid must be sealed tight with no air passing through.
Stir everyday morning.
Add the juice from 5 jars for use in 2 : 1 : 1 : 1 : 1 ratio.
OHN makes crops healthy; it is used throughout the early, vegetative, changeover and fruiting stages. Basic dilution ratio is 500-1,000. When crops are week, mix/apply FPJ (500), BRV (500) and OHN (1,000). When plants have soft rot or anthracnose, add water-soluble calcium (WCA 1,000) to the this solution.
