Default Making rice wine

Hello,

I am interested in making rice wine. Specifically, I want to make Shaoxing yellow wine. My girlfriend is from Shaoxing, and I think it would be really cool to make the same wine that has been made in her hometown for thousands of years. Her grandmother used to make it, so I may be able to learn that way. I have some loose translations from a site, but am not sure about it. Where on the net can you learn all about rice wines?

The closest will probably be http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f25/making-traditional-rice-wine-cheap-fun-different-361095/ Can't miss it.

There's two main variations on rice wines... three if you want to get chemical. One is where mold is grown on rice then adding water and yeast, making sake, the other is using a mold/yeast combo that's cultured on wheat flour, or possibly rice straw, which is used.
Unfortunately, I haven't seen the specific variations as to the ingredients. I suspect, and some comments also alude to this, that brown rice, instead of white rice, is used, and that it needs to be a short grain "gutenous" rice that's used.

KevinM is dead on. That rice wine thread is probably as close as you are going to get. It is easy and delicious too!
