I've used those same jars for pickles. Unfortunately the lids rust really easily.

You are almost there! I just went and looked at my bag for comparison, and it is 8oz for $7.50, product of China, Hop Lee Trading Co., and in upper left corner says FLOWER. Shipped from East Coast US. FWIW, you will be hooked on eating Jasmine rice, if you like rice.

That is pretty amazing. I never knew making sake is so easy. I am officially on the hunt for sushi rice and yeast balls. Thanks!

What a fascinating thread! Thanks to sonofgrok and saramc.

Quick question to both/any of you: any suggestions for doing a large scale batch? If I keep the yeast ball rice proportions the same, doing a few gallons of this wouldn't be an issue, right?

And would doing hydrometer readings on this be impossible or just contrary to the general blue-collar atmosphere? How can you estimate sugar and ABV levels otherwise?

FYI, my friend who would know such things says this is called "farmers' wine" in Korea.

I hope to start mine soon. I was wondering if anyone that had done this has tried clearing it once completed ? I know it's just fine cloudy, but would like to try and make some and clear it up. Anyone tried this before ?

How can I make like a three gallon batch of this stuff?

Go big or go home.
