Kevin...check your messages.

Also, wanted to share with everyone that I had posed a question on the homebrewsake.com website, and Will gave me an answer. You can read his article and the question I asked if you visit http://homebrewsake.com/home/2010/04/25/koji-what/comment-page-1/#comment-9309

I have learned the red rice yeast, aka "Beni-koji" is Monascus purpureus mold growing on the rice as the substrate, and is a key part of recipe for CHINESE RICE WINE. While Japanese sake uses Aspergillus Oryzae cultivated on rice to make koji AND many yeast balls do in fact already have koji in them. Even more important is the RICE you choose to use for your wine...Chinese style uses glutinous rice, Japanese style uses non-glutinous short grain rice [three people at Ft Knox told me to use this: NISHIKI brand Premium Grade Rice, Sushi Rice for Japanese sake making--it is short grain, smaller/thinner than orzo and visibly different than THAI HOM MALI JASMINE RICE--longer grained, which I am using as my glutinous rice but I cannot confirm if it really is glutinous rice, going to contact company for confirmation]. SO, it turns out I am making Chinese-Japanese rice wine-sake, because I used equal amounts of both rices, the yeast balls and the red rice yeast....it will be called THE ORIENTAL EXPRESS.

Sonofgrok,
Are you okay with me continuing with my current rice wine ferment on your thread?

And I must say the smell alone of this rice and yeast combo is amazing. My 2 gallon jar was cool to touch, so I just put it in a water bath. It normally sits perched under microwave light on high, but shielded from direct light, and it keeps warm...but I accidentally reset my home thermostat and the clue was ' I am freezing in this house! Duh. '

I've never tried this way of making rice wine and can't wait to give it a shot. Recently tried the recipe for sake per the instructions and it was quite a pain. This looks much easier!

The rice completely collapsed on itself, on its own, still smells divine, and it is BUBBLING. No water added, and I have a nice build up of sweet wine. I tasted the fermenting rice, grabbed a spoonful and chilled it....yummy.

Attaching some photos...
You will recall the photo taken 11/13 just after assembly, obvious rice vs the red of the red yeast rice/yeast ball blend powder.

And now, 11/15, colorful fermentation...
