Makgeolli is an alcoholic beverage made of hard-boiled rice and dry cereal cake just like fermented yeast.
As this beverage goes through the fermenting process, it contains high levels of lactic acid bacteria, protein, essential amino acids. The milky, off-white and lightly sparkling rice wine has a slight viscosity with tastes of slightly sweet and tangy.
You'll taste five kinds of this traditional liquor as well as "draft" Makgeolli that you make. You can also take hard-boiled rice and dry cereal cake so that you can do fermentation at home.
