If you haven’t tried craft or premium makgeolli then you are definitely missing out.
Just like great cheese or juicy steaks pair well with wine, if you are a Korean cuisine lover and home brewing fermentation aficionado you can’t complete a great meal without a fresh flavorful glass of Korean rice wine or makgeolli.
The combination of colors, balance, and harmony are the main components of a lovely traditional meal, and the right bottle of Korean rice wine will maximize your experience.
If you are new to makgeolli or have tried it, but never had the knowledge or experience to make it, then you have found the right guide. Let me add to the previous point. If you’ve only had commercial makgeolli then I’m sorry but you haven’t tried real and true Korean rice wine.
This book is definitely here to take you through:
- The history of makgeolli
- All the tools you’ll need in order to homebrew
- The right ingredients
- The basic fundamentals between rice and water ratios
- Different recipes and rice preparation methods
- Fermentation cycles in Korean rice wine
- I’ll even show you how to make your own Nuruk, which is the main fermentation starter to make Korean rice wine.
If you love cooking Korean food, or have made your own Kimchi or you’re just a fan of fermenting everything your way, then you’ll fall in love with this craft. There’s nothing better than serving your friends, guests and family your very own cup of fresh home-brewed makgeolli to impress everyone at the dinner table.
But making makgeolli is just the beginning, when making Korean rice wine, you will learn how to make different types of sool, or Korean alcohol, which you’ll find out in this book.

Take the challenge, and make your own makgeolli with this book!
I really liked the chapter on making my own nuruk. It’s sometimes hard to get it from the stores in the U.S so learning to make my own is priceless. The chapters on fermentation cycles and using your senses was very informative as well. I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to learn how to make makgeolli at home. -Amazon Review
