I came upon the recipie that was easy peasy enough. But as usual my mind got the better of me and I started to get curious about this chinese wine...and also chinese vinegar.
Chinese wine is of course made from rice or millet. Also known as yellow wine or Shao Hsing/Shao Xing (given that since ancient times, the best and most famous rice wines have come from Shaoxing in the Zheijang province). It is made by a fermentation process involving yeast that transforms the sugars from glutinous rice into alcohol.
