If that's all you have, give it a try. My guess is that glutinous rice wine is lower in alcohol due to the yeast and your apple wine will be sweet and lower in alcohol as well. Do you have any other kind of yeast? Maybe you could try looking in Singapore.

You likely won't get many replies to your questions, but only because of a lack of familiarity with your ingredients and processes. I'd venture to say that there are very few people on this board who have ever even heard of glutinous rice and likely nobody at all who has any experience with glutinous rice yeast. Most of us simply don't know. Sorry we can't help.
