  1. I have a problem....
    I cannot find malt powder everywhere in my place...
    I live in Indonesia....
    all I found is something called "ragi"
    it's from rice flour that mixed with a little water and shaped into small cakes and then left overnight so some kind of micro fungi was present there....
    I think the work is same...
    changing starch to sugar...
    but it contain microbacteria...
    can it be a substitute?
    or anyone have a hint for me?
    please answer mee...
    I really want to make that Sikhye...
    :'(

  2. Check out some Koreaan grocery stores in Indonesia. http://www.maangchi.com/shopping/indonesia I hope one of those is near your area.
    You need barley malt powder or crushed barley malt to make shikhye. http://www.maangchi.com/ingredients/barley-malt-powder
