    I had a question about something.

    Re:Gin It sounds to me like this recipe is meant to be used for a quick and easy rice wine. It sounds to me like it should work. So, it sounds like you have got the yeast working, and that's good, but yeast won't live very long unless given the right conditions.. First, you will need to make...
