  1. Wash the glutinous rice, drain, and place in rice cooker with enough water to cover the surface(it is just like cooking regular jasmine rice). Put to cook, and when rice is cooked, remove from the rice cooker, then spread it onto foil covered baking sheets and leave to cool completely.(make sure new foil is used to cover the baking sheets) Rice must be completely cold before use.

  2. Using a clean coffee grinder, grind the wine yeast and red rice yeast into powder.

  3. To assemble:

  4. Sprinkle a little wine yeast mixture on to a crockpot and then layer with rice(wet hands with the filtered water and flatten a handful and use it for layering).

  5. Sprinkle with more rice yeast all over the rice and then sprinkle with the filtered water.

  6. Repeat the layering - rice, rice yeast and water until all the rice is done.

  7. Lastly pour the remainder of the filtered water.

  8. Cover crockpot with a clean cloth and then the lid.

  9. Leave it to ferment for 7 days, then open lid and give mixture a good stir with a clean wooden spoon.

  10. Cover crockpot with the clean cloth and lid and leave to brew for another 14 days(the total brewing time is 21 days - if you prefer a stronger alcoholic wine leave for another 7 days).

  11. Wine can be harvested on the 21st or 30th day.

  12. Prepare a sieve or a colander and line it with a clean cloth. Put it over a pot to catch the wine.

  13. Put the brewed wine mixture onto the cloth and let the wine dripped.(patience in letting the wine drip slowly will result in very clear wine).

  14. When all the wine has dripped and the residue is quite dry, remove the residue and store it in a jar or air tight container for many more other recipes.

  15. Bring the wine to a quick boil (my wine started to boil at 180f and of course it is cos i am one mile above sea-level)

  16. Let the wine cool before bottling.

  17. Wine is now to be enjoyed in any way you wish.

  18. Serves
