I have a sake question?!

Question: I have a sake question!?
ive never had sake, whats it taste like, whats the abv, and is it worth tryingWww@FoodAQ@Com

I've only had sake a few times, but I like it!. There seems to be a wide variety of sakes with a wide range of qualities, so I would ask someone who knew what they were doing!. (The last time I had to buy sake I went to a Japanese grocery store and asked the Japanese woman who worked there to pick a bottle for me - it was great)!.

In terms of taste it's kind of hard to describe!. It's fairly smooth, and doesn't have the bite of whiskey!. It's stronger than beer, but you don't really realize it!. It is a little bit on the subtle side (real sake connoisseurs can challenge wine connoisseurs for descriptive ability)!. It's also much better drunk with the appropriate food - I usually drink it with sushi, and have occasionally used it for cooking with a Japanese style stir fry!. I would certainly recommend at least trying it!. The worst that'll happen is you won't like it and will never try it again!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Sake is also referred to in English as rice wine!. However, unlike true wine, in which alcohol is produced by fermenting the sugar naturally present in fruit, sake is made through a brewing process more similar to that of beer!. To make beer or sake, the sugar needed to produce alcohol must first be converted from starch!. But the brewing process for sake differs from beer brewing as well, notably in that for beer, the conversion of starch to sugar and sugar to alcohol occurs in two discrete steps, but with sake they occur simultaneously!. Additionally, alcohol content also differs between sake, wine, and beer!. Wine generally contains 9-16% alcohol and most beer is 3-8%, whereas undiluted sake is 18-20% alcohol, although this is often lowered to around 15% by diluting the sake with water prior to bottling!.!.!.!.!.

I'm sorry but that does not sound like it would taste good at all!Www@FoodAQ@Com

Anything and everything is worth trying once!. If you haven't tried something, you'll never understand the experience!.

Sake is a wine made from rice!. To be properly served, it must be heated first!.!.!. warm, not hot!. I've tried it and find it kind of bland!. It's ok when served with Japanese meals but otherwise, I don't think it is worth the effort!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

at first taste it is like rubbing alcohol, but it gives you such a great buzzy feeling!.!. I like it! and best when served hot!. also the flavor becomes better the more you drink hahaha

Pretty sure the abv is different depending on the brand!.


Yes it is definitely worth trying!Www@FoodAQ@Com

honestly, ive never had it either, so i would say that it is worth trying, just to say you have had it!. and ten you would know first hand if it is goodWww@FoodAQ@Com

Sake has the same kick as Tequila but provides less of a hangover!. I make a Japanese chicken dish which uses sake in the marinade which is quite tasty as well!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
