Anyone Brew Sake?

Postby Triple Freak » Thu Apr 29, 2004 2:17 pm

Just wondering if anyone here brewed sake. The Japanese rice wine.

If we get enough interest or at least a couple people that are willing to answer questions about it, I'll add a new forum for it.

I was thinking about making some after I brew my IPA and Belgian Strong on my new system. It seems easy enough, and it would make the wife happy. She cant even wait for the mead to finish though.

Speaking of rice, is there a rice based beer? What exactly does rice add to beer? What flavors, properties, aromas, anything? Thanks.

Hey I've brewed sake!

penn, rice will lighten the body of your beer and add alcohol content. The flavor contribution is virtually nil. Rice, as an adjunct, is a common ingredient in many commercial beers including AB.

Yeah. Budweiser. Rice adds fermentables. No flavor, no aroma, no nothing. Just like Budweiser!!! :lol: :D

How did it turn out? I've been curious about it, but never actually given it a try. I assume the process is similar to mead or wine? How easy is the Koji to work with?

Sapporo is a Japanese rice beer. I have less contemp for Japanese rice beers. It seems some how more appropriate.

Right on TF- Bud's day fresh program should be called "yes we have no hops". :P (my appologies to the Marx bothers) 8)
Apparently I can not spell. But I can brew. I would hate to have it the other way.

Seems to me the Koji and other microbes necessary would be difficult to manager, let alone get ahold of.

I am intrigued!

The problem I had was just getting the koji spores. Mine turned out pretty good but I gave it up. The available commercial Sake's were just simply better than I could produce. Very reasonably priced too.

I've also thought about trying sake - found this site to order the koji. It also has some brewing instruction. Maybe I'll get around to it someday.
