Yes, actually we did another lab and sampled living rooms/common rooms/waiting rooms in the same buildings that the bathroom samples were collected in and the organism list was not as large. Samples were collected the same time by another set of students, but same course, same instructor. It was concluded that confined space, humidity potential and activity which takes place in a restroom versus other sample setting was the reason there was such a difference in organism collection. We got an A for the assignment.

This is fascinating but could we possibly take this private?

Its also a matter of type of bacteria. Bathrooms (even the clean ones) have a lot of bacteria associated with fecal matter like E. Coli. After you drop a deuce, that "clean" bathroom still smells and spraying a little Lysol isn't going to disinfect everything. Especially in nooks and crannies like where the wood meets at the edges and corners of your bathroom cabinet. Bathrooms (especially under the sink) tend to also be more humid which can contribute to microbial growth.

Anyway, this isn't a "how sanitary is your bathroom to brew in" thread. It's a rice wine thread. So brew it, drink it, and be merry! Moving on...

Just a fyi on yeast dosing. Ive noticed the giant size differences of yeast balls we all have found. Im making another batch today and am going with what I successfully used last batch which was 4 balls for 5 cups of dry thai rice. The ones I use are 1 gram each. Im pretty sure Ive seem ppl use waaaaay more than this on batches perhaps contributing to a strong yeasty smell and or flavor. Happy brewing!

So with many people fermenting their rice wine in bathrooms, this discussion does pertain... so what exactly is the problem?

And... two more days until I get to harvest my first batch!

Q: Wild rice wine: can it be done?
A: Based on the last month's worth of experience, no.
