Good Sake, For Goodness Sake

Traditional Japanese sake production can be complicated and exacting, but this kit makes it easy with everything you'll need (except 1 lb. of white raisins and 2.5 lbs. of sugar) to brew a gallon of your own sake in a hands-on exploration of ancient art and science. Hailing from Nara period Japan (8th century CE), sake is a time-honored rice "wine" steeped in Japanese culture, but you can bring a bit of this rich tradition to your kitchen without a trip to Kobe's legendary breweries.

Assembled in Illinois with the following components:
1 Gallon Glass Carboy
Cane Siphon
Siphon Filter Cap
Siphon Clip
Tubing
Stopper with hole
Airlock
Yeast
Campden Tablets
Acid Blend
No-Rinse Sanitizer
Steeping bags
Short-Grain High Polished Rice
Yeast Energizer
Fermenting Bucket w/ Grommet

Norse Hutchens' first experience with home-brewing came from watching his Dad and Uncles as they got together late on weekend nights to bring their latest homebrew recipes to life. Since then, Norse has developed a passion for home-brewing that has followed him his entire life.

Since his early first experience, he has made it a personal quest to seek out, research, and explore the best ways to make the most flavorful and satisfying home brew recipes. With the help of a community of friends and Brew Masters from across the nation Norse has put together a number of kits that compile years of collective experience and trade secrets. Each of the kits that are offered highlight an approachable recipe and method that are meant to lead the beginner into the complex craft of home brewing, while also offering the veteran a satisfying experience with a delicious result.

This is not Sake

1

I received this as a gift as result of mentioning an interest in expanding beyond brewing mead, wine, and beer, and trying sake. However, after opening the kit and reviewing, I knew immediately that this does not make sake or rice wine. The fact that its called a sake kit is the only reason I am giving it 1 star. Explanation below. For those with only a passing curiosity about fermentation, this kit is likely still a lot of fun. I can't vouch for the end product yet as mine is still going. Taste test is pretty bad but without some aging, a lot of good brews taste acrid and yeasty. Its too early to judge. Now for those serious about brewing sake for the first time, look for kits that contain Koji spores. It is integral to converting the starch in steamed rice into sugars the yeast can use. This kit has no Koji and does does not even ask for the rice to be cooked. Because of this, the rice is pretty much only for show. The real players in this are soaked raisins and several pounds of table sugar. Bottom line, while I don't want crush this product, I do want budding home brewers to know what they are really getting with their purchase.

My boyfriend loves sake and has mentioned brewing it himself a few times. I came across this kit later and put it on my wishlist for an anniversary gift. He hasn't started it yet, but is still doing a little research for the brewing process (raisins are not part of sake brewing). We love how the kit comes with everything you need and are excited for the final results!

Does not make Sake

Sake isn't made with Raisins. And the instructions for this are ridiculous make no sense. Do not buy if you are buying for someone who loves and wants to make sake.

Great Idea for Learning How to Brew

4

This product is great for people that want to get into brewing. However, this kit is for making rice wine not sake (which are two different things. The kit has you ferment with golden raisins and this is not how sake is made, but making sake is a bit more intimidating for beginners). Despite that, it turns out really well and tastes pretty close to sake. Not all of the equipment in the kit is labeled or has directions on how to use it, so research the equipment before use to prevent confusion. Great learning experience overall!
