In this issue:
Consider this...

The acidity or "San-Do" of sake is a measurement of the overall acidity that is within that particular sake. Typically sake has 1/3 the acidity of wine. It is a good indicator of the body of a sake - light or full-bodied. Typical ranges are between 1.0 and 2.0 with the average around 1.3-1.5. Any sake below 1.3 will be more gentle and light bodied, and any brew above 1.5 tends to be more full-bodied and rich in many cases.
