I noticed something amiss in my rice wine during the last 2 days. The amount of wine seems to have stayed stagnant. There wasn't much bubbling and the top layer of the rice appear dry and grainy.
Gina suggested me to open the jar after the first 7 days and give it a good stir to mix the wine and rice together. Today is the 8th day. So I open up the jar this morning and gave it a real good stir before closing the cover again.
And then I started to panic by the afternoon. The whole thing looked like a jar of congee, all mushy and cloudy, no longer grainy like before.
I tasted a little of the wine, as suggested by a fellow KC mate. It was a little sour. I wasn't too sure if that marked the end of my rice wine. I was so demoralised the whole afternoon.
Later in the night, I felt a little better after reading Gina's reply to my query in KC. So, it is supposed to be all mushy and gooey after the stir. So, it is supposed to separate itself in a few days' time (we shall see). And since there isn't any mould growing in the jar, I'll just let it continue with its fermentation process, as suggested by Gina. Keeping my fingers double-crossed that it will turn out well!
