Does anyone have a Makkoli recipe, or a link to one?

For any brew that doesn't fit into any of the above categories!

Well had a go at it.
Its not "that" bad once you get past the fairy liquid taste, and let the fusion of intense ginger and bleach anaethetise your taste buds. Once your at that stage you just need to worry about the bits of grit (WTF - how did they arrive?), and the gruel like sludge.
All in all, an entertaining evening, but not one I hope to repeat in the forseeable future!

Bleach? Not for me thanks!

That was over six years ago!

No, I never tried it again. Nearby there are a couple of Korean stores that sell it. I buy a couple of bottles once a year. Sometimes, in an Asian restaurant, I might order Nigori sake... again, maybe once a year.

So it never seemed worth it to try again.

Especially since I don't bother with regular beer styles anymore, I just do any damn thing I feel like... that's plenty of room for creativity.

Since then I've added lox, sausage, sauerkraut and kimchi to my repertoire (all excellent). I dropped goat cheese (good but boring to make), graff (it was okay, but I didn't like it enough), and cider (my wife barely ever drinks it). I can't say I dropped makkoli, since I never really made it in the first place. :oops:

Maybe when I retire, 7 or 8 years from now. They say your memory begins to fail ......

Wow, way to excavate a thread, man! Why don't you give makgeolli a go yourself and let us know how it works out for you? There's certainly enough information in this thread to get you started. :D

I'm a big fan of makoelli, not so much the cheap stuff that the Koreans usually drink, but if you go to makoelli bars you can get some really nice, tasty, smooth stuff that goes down far too easily. I'd be keen to make it myself one day soon.

I just need to understand what the ingredients are. Does it need a special yeast?

Edit: there's loads of recipes online now so it should be fairly simple to work something sanitary and tasty.
Never enough time...
