So I just finished some of this up and the taste is great. Very sweet. Better than I anticipated. The only thing I didn't care for was the texture of it. Is there a way to take some of the chalkiness out of it?

I would imagine letting it cold crash and separate would take care of that but it will also effect flavor. Maybe try filtering a few times through doubled up cheesecloth or paint strainer or coffee filter

What about oxidation? I've been treating mine like all other beer/wine, trying to minimize oxygen contact.

I havent had any problems with it so far but mine does not stick around the bar very long either. Maybe try it with half and see what you think?

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

I forgot to mention that, despite the low yield, the taste is great! Very sweet, very strong, but very good. I can only imagine what adding fruit flavors to it will do.

It does look great! Not sure which of those would lead to that yield though. I usually get almost half a gallon from 5 cups dry rice. Although I dont think its the soaking because Im pretty sure sonofgrok mentioned he does not soak anymore.

This looks fun and rewarding. My local stores do not carry the dried yeast ball. Is this a good price per gram/oz? http://www.asiansupermarket365.com/P...RCILJ&CartID=1
