The batch that started Monday soaked overnight before steaming. It has not had consistent 86 degrees for a couple of reasons varying down around 80.. But today it looks like the best batch yet. It smells great and for the first time it looks like the pictures. The grains are not sticking together and they are mostly covered in white. I'll soak the remaining 3 pounds of rice overnight and steam it up tomorrow.
I think the difference is that I did not follow the two hour soaking instructions at VisionBrewing but rather the eighteen hour guideline in other online instructions.
Should be fermenting by afternoon tomorrow.
