If I use one of my two gallon ferment buckets for this, it shouldnt be a infection risk using that same cleaned bucket for beer after would it?

As long as you sanitize it, you should be more than ok.

The jasmine/sweet blend is nice. Great aromatics. Scrumptiousness in a bottle.
Though I still favor any which has the red yeast rice added. It is all good.

I think I will pick some of that up. I just put the batch together this morning, so it hasn't done anything yet. I know they have that at the health food store, in fact I think I can buy it bulk. I don't want to read back through, could you tell me about how much to use please?

Right now I have Sushi, Sweet, and Jasmine rice, 2 bags of yeast balls, 1 bag of red yeast rice, and (4) 1 gallon jars. I hope to pick up Basmati rice tomorrow and do 4 different batches with just the yeast balls, compare, then experiment with the red yeast rice later. Possibly try different combinations of rice as well.

I have consistently been using one 10gm yeast ball per cup of dry yeast.

I'm sorry, of the red yeast rice. I could have been more clear. I used 6 yeast balls for 5 cups of rice.

I'm trying my first batch of wild rice. For $10 worth of ingredients, I'm not too worried about failure.
