Wondering if anyone has made it with brown rice or basmati rice. Thinking of giving it a whirl with wild rice (which isn't a rice). And, does one really have to soak the rice for that long?
Never made it, but my guess is that soaking the rice that long allows some of the starch released to be broken down into sugar so that it can be metabolized by the yeast.
For that reason, I don't know if wild or brown rice would work the same way, since some of the starch is bound up inside the kernel. That's just a guess, though. I would think basmati would work fine.
