Good Sake, For Goodness Sake

Traditional Japanese sake production can be complicated and exacting, but this kit makes it easy with everything you'll need (except 1 lb. of white raisins and 2.5 lbs. of sugar) to brew a gallon of your own sake in a hands-on exploration of ancient art and science. Hailing from Nara period Japan (8th century CE), sake is a time-honored rice "wine" steeped in Japanese culture, but you can bring a bit of this rich tradition to your kitchen without a trip to Kobe's legendary breweries.

Assembled in Illinois with the following components:
1 Gallon Glass Carboy
Cane Siphon
Siphon Filter Cap
Siphon Clip
Tubing
Stopper with hole
Airlock
Yeast
Campden Tablets
Acid Blend
No-Rinse Sanitizer
Steeping bags
Short-Grain High Polished Rice
Yeast Energizer
Fermenting Bucket w/ Grommet

Comments about SAKE MAKING KIT:

This product is great for people that want to get into brewing. However, this kit is for making rice wine not sake (which are two different things. The kit has you ferment with golden raisins and this is not how sake is made, but making sake is a bit more intimidating for beginners). Despite that, it turns out really well and tastes pretty close to sake. Not all of the equipment in the kit is labeled or has directions on how to use it, so research the equipment before use to prevent confusion. Great learning experience overall!

            Comments about SAKE MAKING KIT:

            This kit is a great introduction to the art of making sake. All of the tools you need are included, and all non perishable ingredients are included. The instructions are a little fuzzy (it switches between using cups and pounds, and some steps seem to be combined) but it is perfectly doable. Overall this was a great gift that should have a long lifetime.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Delivery was faster than expected however the box had been crushed slightly. All of the components are in good condition, this was most likely the fault of UPS not the sender.

              I had casually mentioned how cool it would be to make my own sake. My wife guided me to this product, and I quickly acted on buying one to try for myself. I'm just beginning the process and really happy with this particular kit.
