They aren't stamped with a name or anything. Sorry. I don't see them on target.com either so they must be an in store item or some such rubbish. If worse comes to worse you can always use mason jars. Thats what my MIL used to use.

This is a great thread! Thanks sonofgrok.
Here's mine after 12 days. 4 cups of sushi rice and 3 yeast balls. I also added 500 ml. of citric acid with the yeast. Had liquid within 24 hours and great smell for the first ten days but now it's smelling a little yeasty. I hope that's a normal phase of the process and I didn't mess something up.
I got two of these 1 gallon food grade containers at Walmart since I could not find any empty gallon jars.

Look for a gallon sun tea jar. And I know at WalMart you can find an assortment of glass cookie jars with glass lids plus glass jars and screw lids. Some even carry gallon mason jars. Anchor Hocking comes to mind on the two gallon all glass jars.

My rice cooker takes about forty-five minutes to fully cook 2 cups dry. If I use wild rice, which I plan to do, it takes longer. I am supposed to fully cook it, right?

Wild rice wine - yeah, I went there.

Damn 45 mins for two cups? Just putting it out their, but I did 11 cups on the stove in a covered pot in a collective 15 mins or so and mine came out just fine

Just harvested my 5 cup of calrose rice batch. Turned out great, have a yield of a little over 1 quart. Its really cloudy though, I tried to filter it a bit through some coffee filters/a brita/a contraption I tried with a coffee filter filled bottle hooked up to some CO2 to push the liquid through, and it just clogged up all the filters I tried, so I abandoned the idea of filtering it. It tastes fine cloudy though. Am starting another batch now of 8 cups of calrose. This stuff is great and is a piece of cake to start. Its a good filler for when I don't have time to brew.
