Yeah, I thought I'd get more. My liquid never did get over the top of the rice. I didn't really soak the rice first, just steamed it. Guess I was impatient. I think my rice could have been too dry. ...

Well I just harvested mine tonight. I used 2 pounds of rice and 2 yeast balls. I got about 3/4 of a quart. So guessing you may get around 2 quarts or so.

Yes, i have plenty of bottles, and I'm sure lot of it will end up aging as it's a lot to use up in cooking. Hopefully will turn into something better with time
