If you REALLY wanted to know what the alcohol content was in an economical and accurate manner, you would buy one of these.

I am going to try to produce a dry Chinese rice wine. I will try 1 kg dry rice, 0.01 kg Chinese yeast ball, 1.5 kg water as a starting point.

standardized recipes from http://www.jiangnan.edu.cn/zhgjiu/u3-6.htm

The ingredients of (YUAN HONG RICE WINE) (dry, 15% alcohol)
polished glutinous rice 100 kg
wheat koji 10.5 kg
traditional seed mash 6 kg
total water 136 (acidified rice steeping 58 kg, fresh 78 kg)

home brew version

http://aussiehomebrewer.com/topic/54...ese-rice-wine/

standerized recipe

Ingredients
100 kg dry weight polished glutinous rice, steamed
1 kg Chinese yeast balls
water (none = sweet, 100 kg = semi sweet, 200 kg = dry ~16%)

It will be a week or so until my yeast balls arrive.

Welcome to the forum. So you aren't going to cook the rice?

The plan is to cook the rice and then add water to total 1.5 times the dry weight of the uncooked rice (dry rice = 1 kg, adsorbed + added water = 1.5 kg).

Well, it looks like I'll be making rice wine this weekend. I stopped in to a large Asian market that I pass by all the time but never go in. This place has things I didn't even know existed and more noodles and rice than I've seen anywhere else. After only about a minute of looking I found the yeast balls, picked out some jasmine rice and got out the door for less than $8. I'm going to have to go back in when I have the time to look around for other things.

Yep, that's the place. I really think I got lucky finding them so fast because the side of the store I started on has the rice and noodles and the yeast was on the second aisle I went to.

I asked for help from another shopper and they asked me what they were for and didnt know the culinary use at all so that wasnt very productive haha . Finally just started looking for any kind of balls and found them in about 5 minutes.
Off topic but they have some amazing sweet soy sauce called Kecap Manis that is an awesome marinade for pork and for fried rice.

Thanks for the tip. I love soy sauce or pretty much any Asian sauce/marinade/condiment so I'll look for it.

I can vouch for those balls. I love Asian markets, there's some pretty cool stuff and always for dirt cheap.
