Hey all, just thought I'd share something I found last night.. probably nothing new to those of you that have been making sake for years, but I figure it's still worth sharing.
I looked up the melting point of fiberglass mosquito screen, significantly higher than 212.. much finer mesh than cheese cloth.. so I gave it a whirl.
It worked GREAT! Hardly any of the steamed rice stuck to the screen. It's cheap, cleans easy, and can be reused!
So long, $1/yard cheese cloth!
