Dansul (단술) or gamju (감주; 甘酒), translated as sweet wine, is a milky (or cloudy) rice wine made with rice, glutinous rice, and nuruk (fermentation starter).[1][2][3][4] Due to the incomplete fermentation of the rice, the wine has relatively low alcohol content (2‒3% ABV) and sweet and slightly tangy notes.[5]

Preparation[edit]

Steamed rice and/or glutinous rice is mixed with nuruk (fermentation starter), lightly pounded, and heated in water until the temperature reaches 60 °C (140 °F).[1] It is left to ferment for several hours at 60 °C (140 °F), and sieved before served.[1]
