Agreed. Same thing... smaller balls. Make sure to do some extra ball crushing.

So the same rice/ball ratio would apply even though these balls are smaller?

I doubt it.

You guys who have batches done, what's the weight of the yeast balls you used? I'd like to know too. I've got a small batch going, but in the package I found the yeast balls are only 1/3 oz.

No. If you have smaller balls you will definitely have to use more of them.

Damn it I'm hooked. I've only looked into making sake once and was turned off from the process. After reading this post I can't wait to get started. Just out of curiosity, has anyone ever distilled the end product?

Mine are 10g each. Some Vietnamese ones I recently bought, also at the same weight, came with instructions. I have not been able to interpret it all BUT it says to use four balls for every 2.2kg(4lb13oz) dry rice.

We cannot discuss the "d" word on this forum. But, I am sure someone, somewhere has.

I made up my batch on Sunday. So far there is no liquid but the rice level in the container has lowered. It's like the rice is being broken down, which I assume is what should happen. There is also condensation on the sides. It has a smell to it, maybe fermentation? I'm not sure but will find out!

Mine is the same way, filled a one gallon jar to the top with rice, but the level has been going down consistently. I'll post picture tomorrow.
