Home-made Chinese rice wine: I'd like instructions

Poot | Mar 10, 2005 10:59 AM

I adore the sweet wine made from glutinous rice in south China and have begun to study how to make it myself. When I was in mountainous southern Fujian, every household had a vat of the stuff, and it was often pink. If you've made sweet rice wine and know how I can get ahold of the ferment ("qu" in Mandarin: a "mai" grain radical and a chrysanthymum "ju") necessary here in San Francisco, please respond.
