Sake Grab Bag - Sake Folks Doing What They Do!
Herewith are two examples of "contributors" who have taken sake to another level in its long and illustrious history:
| Hello, I saw a special on your store on the H2 channel and wanted to reach out. Myself and a friend are getting into homebrewing sake. We've been video taping our first attempt and posting our progress. Please check it out and I hope to get to your store some day. It's great to find others who are passionate about sake!
| Beau, I thoroughly enjoy your monthly news letter. I almost fell out of my chair reading April's newsletter, especially your story of making your own sake. As a new home brewer, I loved your True Beau Shu recipes. In the May newsletter, your notes on your favorite labels prompts me to include a few of the labels from my home brewed sake (Gai-jin Shu). I used Calrose rice milled to 60% and ended fermentation at .998 specific gravity giving a +3 SMV to the 1.37 acidity. My wife works for a Japanese company and many of her Japanese co-workers were impressed with the outcome and loved the labels. The first batch was "First Flight of Spring", the second batch was "Lucid Dreams", batches 3 and 4 (currently waiting for final racking and bottling) are "Midsummer Night's Dream" and "Serene Sunset".
Keep up the great work. Rob
