Bottled first batch

Post by TampaBrew » Fri Oct 12, 2007 9:34 pm

so i just bottled my first batch of sake (sake kit from B3)

Super cloudy, creamy white/yellow color. I pastuerized it at 132 degrees for 5 minutes and transferred to a growler for aging. I tasted it, not bad at all. Better than some commercial sake i have purchaed, just milky. Hopefully it will settle out. I had 2 blow-offs, so i was skeptical of the turnout. We'll see what happens. regardless, i have about a 1/4 gallon of sake that will hopefully be ok.

Anyone esle try the sake kit Morebeer sells? Interested in results.

i know this is a little late but i just did the B3 sake kit and loved it, i let it age for 2 months after taking it off the rice and then decanted the liquid of the settled remains, clear and slightly yellow in color, when poured into a wine glass glass it looked like a chardonnay! I had a nice Poke with it the other night, awesome. Excellent kit although i would probably buy it more often if it were a couple of bucks cheaper.
