Other than the fact that it probably won't be as warm as you may want it to be, what is the issue with under the bathroom sink, as long as you have the cheesecloth + lid?

Yes, I was one of those people :P

I am fermenting mine in a closet, but I really would not see any problem doing it in a bathroom. Assuming you aren't opening it a bunch nothing can get in.

If air can get out bacteria can definately get in

I don't feel real strongly about leaving it there, but what's really the difference between it and a closet other than a pipe running through it?

Assuming that the folks fermenting their rice in their bathrooms clean those bathrooms like they clean the rest of their houses, there isn't going to be "tons of extra bacteria".

co2 is escaping after the space in the jar is full, creating a co2 bubble that expels anything making it impossible for things to get in. That is my understanding of how the yeast eating sugars and expelling co2 and ethyl alcohol works.

You would probably be fine... but why risk it?
