So I added my koji to my nakazoe last night, stirred it it, and went to bed looking forward to finishing up with my tomezoe this morning. What I failed to do was put my vessel in the fridge overnight. Fortunately, I did bag the vessel, and came out this morning to half of my brew in said bag, about 1 out of the 2 gallons that was there the night before.
Obviously, this could have been prevented by either 1) using a larger fermenter, or 2) putting it in the fridge overnight (which I typically do, and simply spaced out on doing). My question is:
Now that I’m down in volume, do I split my tomezoe into 2 days of smaller additions, or press forward and yield 3/4 of the original batch?
For argument’s sake, I could try and get more rice and koji overnighted (don’t really wanna spend the money), and either 1) just have a bunch left over, or 2) make a huge batch. Frankly, I’d rather not do either this time; I’d really like to move along as nothing happened and have the batch turn out just fine.
Do I need to tweak the quantities and/or timing of my final addition to compensate for my unsightly loss?
