"I learned to love Korean food, when I was stationed in Korea years ago. I still eat Kimchi and have both Betchu and Mu-kimchi in my fridge, as I write. I also enjoy Kaktu-gi kimchi, when I can get it. I frequent a local Korean Food Store and get many "Eye-goo's" when I go to buy freshly made Betchu Kimchi! I get to talk with the Koreans present about my days in Dong-du-Chon and Taegu! One day, a Korean man in the store, asked me if I ever had drank Makgeoli in Korea. Of course I had and that was how I found out that the store had Nuruk! But, it was YOUR website with Makgeoli recipe that got me making my own! Thank you so much. Not only for the Makgeoli recipe, but other yummie foods that I ate in Korea and still enjoy to this day! Yaki-Mandu, is of course an all time favorite! I still remember my Hangul and can read Korean after many years! That's the key, for Americans to learn Korean. Learn the alphabet first! Then, pronunciation of the words is much easier, whey you know how the letters sound! I love your website! Ko Map Sumnida!"

"I first learned to enjoy Makgeoli years ago, during my military service in Korea. I used to go to a "Makgeoli House" in the town where I was stationed. Some ROK soldiers took me as their guest and I LOVED the Makgeoli! We ate hot peppers and drank Makgeoli! Now, I am making it at home. The recipe at your website is a good one. My Makgeoli comes out good, everytime. Thank you. My latest effort is brewing now. I made a mistake when I mixed in the Nuruk and Yeast by adding too much water! But, it seems not to make any difference. The mixture is bubbling and "talking" to me. I can hear it "cooking" when I put my ear close to the mixture. It smells great and although it's still working, already tastes like Makgeoli! I'll wait until it stops working, then strain and bottle. I use old root beer plastic bottles that are 1/2 liter in portion. This is great for friends and family. Makgeoli goes great with Kimchi, Bulgokki and other tasty Korean dishes. But, I still like to eat peppers when I drink Makgeoli, like I did as a young man in Korea, so long ago."
