True Sake Newsletter May 2010

Posted by Stephen King in 2010, May, Monthly Intro, Newsletter
Dear Sake Drinker,

Welcome to the May Issue of America's sake-centric Newsletter. In this issue, listen in on the shower thoughts of a guy trying to figure out the macro vs. micro sake brewery scene, how ash kills sake tastings, read about a shaking experiment that took nigori sake to a new playing field, check out the next wave of nama-zakes, don't forget the limited trial-basis sakes, see what Miwa is up to, and learn how to tell if your sake has gone bad!


In this issue:


Consider this...

Did you know that old-school toji - head brewers - can tell how far along their fermenting sake is by listening to the popping of the bubbles on the top of a batch of fermenting sake. As carbon dioxide comes popping forth the size of the bubbles emit a different pitch - smaller bubbles represent less fermentation than larger ones.
