  • [ – ] SonicMcPatriotic reply hm as a wine maker, I never considered trying to make a rice wine. I might try it one day. I tried an onion wine that was actually surprisingly pretty good. :)
    • TheBrewMonks parent reply It's a really cool process I think you would like it a lot. All you need is some good quality white rice and some Aspergillus Oryzae. That will start the process for you turning those starches into good ole fermentable sugars.
  • [ – ] Alien1375 reply Huh, well perhaps there is a difference with the European licenced Sapporo and the North Amercan one. The European licenced Sapporo does not list rice as an ingredient.
  • [ – ] SilentGamer reply Double thumb up, ok so if I see it I will buy it. I am curious :D
  • [ – ] JustHypeVibe reply #JapaneseBeers are the best!!
  • [ – ] SonicMcPatriotic reply Have you tried Dixie beer from Louisiana? It is the worst beer ever! LOL
    • [ – ] TheBrewMonks parent reply Thankfully never! lol Might have to find one though and try it just to review it lol
      • [ – ] SonicMcPatriotic parent reply It definitely has it's own taste. A bad one. I wonder if they used bayou water to make it.
        • [ – ] SonicMcPatriotic parent reply I looked up info on Dixie beer and actually has better ratings than I would have thought. I am a Budweiser woman though. LOL Here is an interesting article about the Dixie brewing co. http://www.nola.com/business/index.ssf/2017/07/dixie_beer_saints_tom_benson.html
  • [ – ] TheBrewMonks reply Just in case anyone else tries to claim that Sapporo is not a rice beer, please refer to this - >https://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/415/128041/
    • [ – ] Alien1375 parent reply I refer to this site: https://www.japancentre.com/en/products/1355-sapporo-premium-lager-beer I also have this beer at home and the label lists the ingredients: water, barley malt, barley and hops. No rice.
      • [ – ] TheBrewMonks parent reply You are wrong sir, it is indeed made with rice (at least this style is) I counter with this - https://www.northernbrewer.com/connect/2012/06/rice-beer/

          • TheBrewMonks parent reply here's a snippit for our followers "The Sapporo Beer is made up of malted barley, water, yeast,and hops. Another major ingredient of Sapporo Beer is rice. Another alternative component of Sapporo beer is buckwheat or Sorghum which a common type of grass used to make most of the African beers."
