Still 3 bottles left of my rice brew. Ingredients: about half a jar, or 10.5 ounces, of Sweet Dreams brown rice syrup; about a tbsp of caraway seeds; and half a packet of bread yeast in a 1-gallon carboy (Carlo Rossi bottle). Top up with water. Ferment about a week, bottle condition with 1/2 tsp sugar each for another week. This stage clarifies the cloudy brew, and what's left is a crystal-clear rice ale with caraway seeds floating in it. Pleasant taste but not much character. Quite drinkable all the same.

Got to find something to bitter my next batch, made with malt syrup this time. Maybe dandelion.
