2019 Terada Honke Daigo no Shizuku (720ml)
Bodai-moto is created by combining raw polished rice, a small amount of cooked rice and water and incubated for around three days.
The cooked or steamed rice that is added is first cooled in the open air where it becomes infected with yeast. After the mixture starts to bubble and tastes sour the liquid is pored off through a mesh, keeping the liquid to be used with steamed rice and koji for the main mash. Both yeast and lactic acid producing bacteria are cultivated in the bodai-moto and transferred to the main mash in the liquid. Current practice uses this liquid to make the starter rather than the main mash itself. Black Market Sake
