Otaku, Japan - Sake Winemaking

This is Barry’s second addition to Dom’s test blog.

This is another test

I am adding this to an existing blog as a test.

I am also adding a picture a test.  

this is the end of the test. 

old blog is below.










Today we were in far North Japan.

We visited a sake brewery to learn about its production. Even though sake is a Japanese rice wine, it is made in a brewery.

Normally in winemaking, grapes turn to wine by their naturally present sugar fermenting. Sake is brewed more like beer. With beer, starch is converted into sugars and then converted to alcohol.Like other rice wines, when sake is brewed, these conversions occur simultaneously.


Sake tends to be stronger than dinner wines and considerably stronger than beer.

Too bad it is night and dark out not allowing good photos. We are really rocking and rolling tonight. Waves are smashing onto our cabin windows and we are on the 11th floor. Wow-wee!!!
