Default DIY rice syrup

I decided that I would make my own rice syrup since I had seen people posting on other sites trying and trying to make the stuff. Here's what I came up with.


3 pounds rice
1 gallon water +2 cups
bioferm L


I boiled the gallon of water then added the rice and cooked till soft and "soupy". After that I stuck it into a mesh bag for BIB. When that was ready I got the temp up to 154 and added the Bioferm L and let it sit for two hours in a mini cooler.

Heres the cool part though.


After I had the wort collected I used a large pan to reduce the wort into syrup. It came out looking exactly like the syrup from Lundbergs and tasted just like it too! I made about 1.25 pounds of syrup so my extraction was only mediocre but that's what I expected from BIB.

Probably a stupid question, but a quick search did not produce the answer.

What's "BIB"?

Sounds like brew in bag or brew in a bag.

What's "bioferm" and where do you get it? Or more importantly, where can *I* get it? I'd love to try making rice syrup out of black rice or red rice or toasted rice etc.

The OG? Since I reduced it to be super thick I didn't take a measurement but before I reduced it I had 1.055 which is decent. Bioferm L is a commercial enzyme and I don't know if it's readily available but there are other options to get your diastatic power from. Maybe a local nano could hook you up?

Hmm...looks like Bioferm L is just alpha-amylase. Can you confirm or deny this?

When you weigh the time of making it, plus cost of ingredients, do you really come out on top of just buying something like Lundbergs?

Seconded. There's definitely the question of, "why make it into syrup rather than just using it as wort and making beer with it straight away?"
