Big picture of sake foaming up in the drum

Nakazoe was yesterday. This was just now.

I’ll do the final addition on Saturday… I should do it today but I have this pesky day job.

A drum? How much sake are you making? :smiley:

Oh about 30 gallons, more or less…

Wow… that’s a lot of sake. I just pressed my first batch from a kit last weekend and will be lucky to get 2.5 gallons out of it.


That is some amount of sake!

And I think steaming 4kg of rice is a pain in the ass :slight_smile:

Tip number 1: steam the rice someplace where you can hose the whole place down afterwards to clean it…

Today I steamed 50 pounds for the final addition. Here’s the result: a 55-gallon drum 2/3 full. Gotta leave some room for the foam!

Very nice, man. I can’t wait to see what you come up with to handle joso. :smiley:

Here’s the same drum 24 hours later. It’s all downhill from here… (I am turning the temperature down and the foam will subside somewhat.)

As far as joso goes… I will be buying a lot of nylon paint strainer bags!

That…my Friend…is a thing of beauty!!!
