I just harvested my rice wine after 24 days. I only got about half of a 750 ml bottle from 5 cups (dry) jasmine rice and 4 yeast balls. I am guessing the factors that led to this are -
#1 Fermentation temp too low, esp early on. (probably closer to the low 70s, high 60s)
#2 Not enough water, no soaking... Water level in rice cooker was one finger knuckle's length above the rice level, and it cooked real fast.
Anyways I am not upset at the yield, I just know I can do better based on what other people have posted. I will probably put a paint bucket heat lamp - http://brewstands.com/fermentation-heater.html
- into the cooler - and hooking that up to one of the STC-1000s that I should be getting in the mail soon, at least until I build my dual fermentation chamber
