Sake Images - Photos From The Soul Of Sake June 2012

Posted by Beau Timken in 2012, June, Newsletter, Sake Images
Please be a part of our "Sake Images" section by contributing your very select sake related photographs. I'm not looking for a batch of your pictures, rather I'd like to see one or two really powerful shots that could be in a brewery or at your own home tasting or event. Quality over quantity here people! And then write one or two sentences (if you want) about the picture that we can share with the other readers.

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.
