Cheap sake kit on eBay

Postby im1dermike » Mon Jan 28, 2008 8:50 am

This deal seems pretty good compared to B3's 1 quart Sake kit for $17. This kit will make 5 gallons of Sake for $20 (price right now) shipped plus rice.

Our kit comes with the rice, and you can feed it with your polished rice to yield as much as you want.
Cheers!

JP,

When you say "you can feed it with your polished rice to yield as much as you want", what do you mean?

- Just keep adding the cooked rice and water to make up the volume?
- Much like bumping up a starter?

I have been toying with trying a Sake kit, but wanted have a large amount than most kits offer.

Thanks. 8)

Why does it say it makes 1 quart of sake then?

Because it makes one quart if you don't add anything to it. But yes, you can add more polished rice and water and keep feeding the thing and bump it up like a starter.
