I am not too picky on the temps. Rice wine is supposed to brew a little on the warmer side. I would say that the closet this is fermenting in is probably about 74 degrees F ambient.

How much wine are you making? It looks like it's just a glass of wine, or am I just getting the scale wrong?

Scale is hard to tell from the pictures. Here are the jars with a wine glass and a 500mL beer bottle for scale. The jar on the left (The one documented in this thread) will probably yield about 400mL and the jar on the right (One I started a week ago with more rice that I did a better job cooking) will yield easily over 500mL. Probably more like 750mL. I will be happy to post the actual amounts that we end up with when we extract the liquid.

Remember that "wine" is somewhat of a misnomer as this will be around 20% alcohol and is usually consumed in shot-sized quantities.

Sonofgrok.....how much rice are you cooking per x-amount of yeast balls. My package of yeast balls arrived today. Also noticed that the site I shared carries a black glutinous rice which may be interesting to use if you are aiming for black rice wine.

Cannot wait to get some going.

I usually use 2 yeast balls per 2-3 cups (dry uncooked measurement) rice... which I should add is probably way more yeast than you need.

This is awesome, I will most definitely be making some Sake one of these days. Thanks for the thread OP, I'll be awaiting the final product, all though not as much as you!

So, thanks to this thread, I have had a batch of this sitting on my counter for going on a couple of weeks now. I have a couple of inches of liquid at the bottom of my jar. What are the next steps for this?
