Amazing Leverage: The Final Steps of Sake-Brewing
Wednesday, May 19, 2010
Rice, water, koji and the skills of the brew master are touted as the most important elements in sake brewing. However, sake brewing goes through several important steps at the end of the process, including filtration, pasteurization, bottling and maturation, which together hold great sway over the final flavor of the sake. In this program, sake expert John Gauntner explains how these simple-sounding, but very important processes, affect the distinctive flavors of sake.
Followed by a sake tasting.
