Thank you for waiting this so long.
I received many requests on this progress and result.
After more than 6 months….
Opened the bottles and checked its aroma.
Mirin with Sake.
This is not right!!
This aroma is not right. Not too bad, but not quite right.
When you deal with fermented food, I think it is very important to believe your nose.
Use your five senses, especially sense of smell.
So it was unfortunate, but I gave up to taste this.
What about one with Shotsu??
This one actually smells sweet.
This aroma is good one!! 🙂 Smells just like Mirin.
I don’t know the real reason why my Mirin with Sake didn’t go well,
but my guess at the moment is alcohol contain % in Sake was too low.
Shotsu has more alcohol than Sake.
Next, I will try again with higher alcohol % contain Shotsu, 35% alc one.
