Wild rice wine - yeah, I went there.
That's about right for my rice cooker time wise. Mine cooks 7.5 cups of dry rice at one time though. That produces 20 cups of cooked rice.

I have an inline micron filter I use to filter my beer. I wonder if that would work or clog

When my large batch is done, I'm planning on adding some bentonite powder to the liquid if it is murky.

Good Idea. I hand thought of that. I think I'll pasteurize then try cold crashing. If that doesn't work ill try bentonite.

Sorry if this has been asked already but has anyone tried this with a basmati rice? I have about 6 pounds on hand and am looking to put it to good use!

I think that has been asked and it didn't work, got to be the sticky rice variety.

My son is going to make this today. How many cups dry sweet rice will we need to fill a 2 gallon glass container? How many yeast balls does he need to use?

It should work on some level. I can't vouch for the product because I have never done it but only one way to find out! Whats the worse that could happen, you are out a couple cups of rice and some cheap yeast balls?

I like a 1 ball per cup to 1 ball per 2 cups range ratio myself. I usually use 2-3 cups dry which about half fills a 1 gallon so it sounds like you are going to need a lot of rice.
