Contemporary Vegetarian Japanese restaurant Wabi Sabi Salon in Melbourne, in collaboration with Yuka “Discobeans” Mikayama – progenitor of local health-food-oriented cafe Disco Beans, is hosting a special homebrew sake workshop and lunch on Sunday the 24th of February.

Participants will be guided through the process of how to brew their own sake at home – the so-called doburoku:

What is ‘doburoku’?
Doburoku is an unfiltered, unpasteurised sake made by fermenting rice and the koji strain of fungus. This results in an alcoholic version of amazake (sweet sake made from fermented rice sugars) which has a lower alcohol percentage than filtered sake.
Doburoku is full of probiotics and amino acids, and like amazake, also contains the naturally-occuring amino acids, Vitamin B, and sugars from rice.
Historically, doburoku was an essential presence in the Japanese household, acting as an energy drink to revitalise farmers during their long days in the fields.

All ingredients and supplies involve in the doburoku production will be supplied at the workshop, but participants are instructed to bring their own glass jars for storage. Glass jars can also be purchased at the workshop, if necessary.

The event commences on February 24 at 11:30AM sharp, finishing at 2:00PM with time for a complimentary lunch in between.

Tickets are $85 per person. Due to limited seats, it is recommended that you make a reservation ahead of time with the provided email addresses/phone number.

More information about the event, as well as about the benefits and ingredients of doburoku sake can be found on the event’s Facebook page.
