Sake Images - Photos From The Soul Of Sake September 2012
Please send these very specific and stellar photos to info @ truesake.com with the subject line "Sake Images".
This month's Sake Image comes from Del Sorenson who spent some time up at the small sake brewery in Vancouver BC called the Artisan Sake Brewery that makes a line of sake called O'Sake. (I have written about Masa's kura extensively in past issues)
This is a picture of a shubo "tank" that they use for their yeast starter. To me it looked like a large soup pot, but I guess a small brewery doesn't have a need for a big tank. After seeing quite large tanks at big breweries in Japan I thought this was a joke, but it's not. It's real.
