The amount of sugar gives a SG potential of 5, haven't tested on vinometer yet. Batch 2 came out as 12% on the vinometer.
4 ended first and it came out a week ago, not bad, clear, chardonnay like color and taste, nice.
3 ran longer and is milky, it came out yesterday, it has a very nice flavor, slightly sweet with a little sparkle of effervescence. I'd bet it would be carbonated if capped. What is left is in a half gallon bail top mason. I bet it will have a bit more sparkle in short order.
The original recipe is three cups sugar, 4 1/2 cups rice, handful of raisins, a gallon of water and yeast.
Update: #3 vinometer reading 10%, #4 13%, can't explain that one yet!
