    Esters make it stink like banana or mayflowers. Good progress but I just don't want to end the
    ferment too early. I don't plan on racking. I think I will let the primary ferment run for
    about 14-20 da...

    Heat is part of the reason why my summer sake became sour. However I believe food grade plastic
    is the greater cause. So many fermenters and tea brewers are made from plastic, not because it
    is the be...

    If you don't stir everyday the foam on top will dry into a disgusting crust. When I was in San
    Francisco I visited the Sho Chiku Bai free tasting room at their brewery. I learned a new term
    that expla...

    I ate some of mine. I find one specific rule or trick to reusing the lees I do not plan on
    using them.This is the most advanced sake recipe I found but I have not read all of it. just

    I recently saw a small tub of sweet sticky sushi rice at stop & shop for 10$. The price I think
    is too much but it might be good if I ever make koji. The rice was processed to an almost round

    I love Frisky Dingo. Anyway... overestimated recipe. One keg was full, not to the brim but
    full. I stirred and shook keg to make sure koji, rice, and yeast were mixed. Very annoying. I
    dumped mix fas...

    One of my friends used this recipe. has only made one batch and I was able to taste it when I
    visited her recently. Because she fermented in staineless and used good rice her first sake
    came out bet...

    Thank you. I used beginner recipe. After a week ferment seemed to end but I added a little more
    koji and rice like recipe suggested and I let it ferment for another two days. Total ferment 9
    days. Nex...

    My newest batch of sake is the greatest batch ever. Food grade plastic is the worst material
    for sake. Only glass or stainless steel fermenters can be used. Until I get some cornelius kegs
    I will not ...

    For the record whoever moved this post into wine is correct and wrong. Sake is called a wine
    because it tastes like one but it is made exactly like beer. I spend 30$ on shipping for
    completed koji ric...
