Hey nic, I was thinking about what you said regarding horchata and saki. I have had this "milky saki" several times.I think it is unfiltered saki basically. Ever had it? I think it is popular in Korea. Milky opaque in appearance sweet and mildly alcoholic in taste.

Just got me to thinking.What about making horchata, then fermenting it and bottle carb. Has to be something ferment-able in starchy rice water, right? 

Guess it might taste awful otherwise people would be drinking it. ,

Cloudy sake...that's my favorite stuff, called nigori sake.  Usually sweeter and milder in taste, although it can be plenty strong in ABV, still.  Nigorizake is what I pick up if I'm going to watch Toshiro Mifune movies!  Nigori sake, yakitori, and one of those long, black and white Kurosawa period piece movies makes for a nice evening.

Horchata I don't think would actually ferment properly, at least in a sake sort of way...I made the suggestion in jest...the sake fermentation process is actually a lot more complicated, not though I could adequately explain it, but it involves the use of something like a benign mold to convert the starches to a fermentable status.  Now, horchata is probably sweetened with sugar, so THAT would ferment I bet, and you would then have a very low ABV thick rice beverage, but I doubt the rice would be converted to alcohol in the way sake does.

But nigorizake is great.  If I wasn't so cheap I'd have it more often.  Not that its that expensive, I guess, but I barely buy commercial beer any more, such is the expanding extent of my cheapness.  Someday I'll start trying to brew it meself.

How bout amazake? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amazake Sounds interesting. Still need koji though.

This one is interesting too. Guess this one is a wild ferment? http://www.helladelicious.com/recipes/2007/06/rice-milk-from-nourishing-traditions/

Or gamju http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gamju

This one is getting closer to what you had me thinking. .http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Makgeolli

Does not look like they use koji rice when making makgeolli, it uses nuruk instead.From what I gather it is a sort of fermented wheat cake that includes the cultures to ferment the makgeolli.

This is the stuff I was talking about, I was wrong its not saki at all. man is it good.

I like the unfiltered sake the best. Maybe it's the homebrewer in me.

Ha, thats funny. True though I have been brewing less frequently. Its more like I have to do some drinking though.  ;D

Ill do some brewing and post some pics. You have to promise not to laugh though.

Im really want to try making this Makgelloi. Really good stuff. I have had it a few times. Impossible to describe. You can get it still or carbonated and it is very high in alcohol.

The rice is not prepped with that mold koji as with saki but instead it is boiled rice mash that is fermented with a wheat paste that has yeast cultures in it called. nuruk.



This milky rice beer is not saki at all all though many westerners call it "milky" saki.

It is much more close to beer than saki cause it is fermented with yeast, but also a fungus is in the nuruk cake.

This rice preparation and use of nuruk is also part of the process for making soju,but we cant talk about making that stuff on this forum.

Now I have to find some nuruk cake.  ::)

I hate to get back on topic here, but soy and almond milk really do taste great on cereal.
