Chang (pronounced "Chung") is a great Asian beer. Its from Thailand and I think it is brewed in an old Carlsberg owned brewery.

OB from Korea...Oriental Brewery, but it's also nicknamed Oriental Budweiser.

Tsing Tso from China

Saporro from Japan

Yes, I like warm Sake too. I have plenty of homemade Sake recipes. I am finding it difficult to find the right ingredients. There's a special fungus you have to use to add to the rice.

Default Koji

it is not so hard to find - many homebrew shops are now carrying a kit that contains the 'seeds' of koji and sake yeast you will need. In addition to the kit, you will need plenty of rice, of course.

If you want complete instructions, google 'homebrew sake' - there are a few sites out there - or you can check out Fred Eckhardt's book SAKE (U.S.A.) available at many homebrew stores. I just checked, it is not in Beertown's bookstore or on amazon.com.

here is a sake recipe (in PDF format)

Have fun

I've been stationed in Korea twice so I've had my share of OB. Nasty stuff. Hite and Cass were both much better, and that's not saying much......
The Korean bar proprietors would just keep crates of OB sitting in the sun and scalding temps....like every 3rd OB you got was skunked.....Yecchhhh.....
Now Soju...now you're talking!!!!!

Sake is really interesting in that by all technical definitions, it is a beer. Beer is a drink made from fermenting grains and wine is a drink made from fermenting fruits.

But that's neither here nor there. I spent three years in Japan and I'm here to tell you, Sapporo, Kirin and Asahi are all similar to our Bud, Miller, Coors etc... All of their good beers over there are all in symbols so I'm not sure what any of the names are. But, every beer I've had over there that isn't Sapporo, Kirin or Asahi is excellent. I haven't seen anything like those over there in the US though, I've only gotten them over there.

I spent three years in Japan, and never came across anything really special. My fav of the big three though was by far Kirin Ichiban. There was one beer they would have occaisonally at the NCO club that was by far the best, but I'll be damned if I can recall the name of it!

Mmmmm.....soju!!!! Never did care much for sake.

I've tried Kirin Ichiban before they sell it here in Texas. I really disliked it. Taste was awful.

I picked up a six pack of some japanese beer that was killer about six months ago. I can't remember the name of it, but I remember that the label said it was black rice beer. Next time I go the the beer store I'll see if I can't find the name of it. I've tried lots of different japanese beers, and this is the only one that I enjoyed.
