Sake Images - Photos From The Soul Of Sake June 2012
Please send these very specific and stellar photos to info @ truesake.com with the subject line "Sake Images".
This month's Image is from me!
Everybody knows what the Nihonshu-do is and what it means. It's the measurement of the residual sugars left in the sake after fermentation. (The higher the number the dryer the sake, the lower the sweeter). But have you ever seen the Sake Meter Value machine in action?
This is a picture of the Nihonshu-do bobbing in a beaker of sake. Notice that the lower bulb portion is floating about an inch off of the bottom of the beaker - it is lighter than the sake right at that point. Then you read where the red line above rests and voila the SMV of that sake has just been determined.
