Quick question - I don't have a way to steam cook rice at the moment. Would this also work if I cooked it in a pot like I usually do? Thanks!

I think it is discussed already within this thread, but wiki gives a decent overview along with a photo. Your search engine will provide a plethora of info, just let your fingers do the walking.

I'm using a 5 gallon stainless steel stock pot with a gallon jug of water on the lid. Same way I make my mead. Haven't had a problem yet. When money allows ill buy a 50lb bag of rice from the local Hong Kong palace and ferment in a brew bucket. One thing I am going to try is lining the bucket with a 5 gallon paint strainer bag and putting the rice in that to hopefully make it a little easier to separate at the end

Yeah I saw some people had some luck with that, I tried my local target today and couldn't find one. Sonofgrok, do you know offhand what they're called at target so I can search their website? My searches of gallon jugs and gallon jars were unsuccessful. Even a brand name would be help.

That sounds pretty epic. Just curious, what do you mean a gallon jug of water on the lid? Like sitting on top to keep the lid on or something?
