Brew it... leave it alone... then enjoy it. All this opening and smelling and stirring and worrying business is very much uncalled for. I can't wait to drink this batch.
I agree, I just leave it alone for 3 weeks aside from a peek or two

I use a high shelf in the pantry. I don't touch, just look. My cheesecloth is only 10 grade so I'm not about to screw with it.

Think I'm gonna have to go to a cloth store for muslin this time. Last strain was a nightmare.

Has anyone put fruit in the mix while fermenting? I have some frozen blueberries that I could put in and see how that goes.

I have gone to using one of those nylon grain/hop bags and a juice pitcher for straining.

Paint strainer bags work well for me

I would be worried about fungi in the fruit skin messing up the ferment in the early stages. I am more comfortable flavoring with fruit after.

That being said, there is nothing wrong with giving it a try...

So I havn't seen too much about harvesting this stuff. I finally made a batch that is without acetone and is ready to harvest.

Is there any concern about the mold on top? I have a good layer of the white mold/ funghi on top of my rice. And a good amount of liquid on the bottom.

I am thinking to just grab a large piece of voile, put it into a pitcher, dump the contents of my jar inside (rice, liquid, everything), lift, squeeze and harvest most if not all the liquid inside. Does this seem right?

Then just add to a sanitized bottle and refrigerate. Sound alright?

Sounds about right. I have a white tea towel I use. I put a colander in a bowl, then the tea towel. Pour everything into it. Then lift the starch mass in the towel out of the colander. Massage the starch mass to extract the rest of the liquid. Squeeze firmly. Then discard the starch mass, and wring the towel into the bowl.

I use that tea towel for making cheese too, it's got the right weave to let the liquid pass through without being to weak. I also find it helpful to wet the towel down and wring it out before pouring the rice wine into it. Otherwise it's so dry it retains a fair amount of wine.

I don't worry about the mold when squeezing.
