Sikhye, nice taste and you should try ^^

Sikhye식혜 is a traditional Korean rice drink made by pouring malt water onto cooked rice. It tastes sweet and you can feel ginger flavour also. Sihkye always served as a dessert.
The malt water steeps in the rice at typically 150 degrees Fahrenheit until grains of rice appear on the surface. The liquid is then carefully poured out, leaving the rougher parts, and boiled with sugar. Ginger or jujube are often added for additional flavor. It is served chilled.
In South Korea and in Korean grocery stores wherever Korean communities are found, sikhye is readily available in cans or plastic bottles.
One of the largest South Korean producers of sikhye is the Vilac company of Busan. Atypical of most canned beverages, each can has a residue of cooked rice at the bottom.
Homemade sikhye is often served after a meal in a Korean restaurant. There are several regional variations of sikhye. These include Andong sikhye and yeonyeop sikhye or yeonyeopju, a variety of sikhye made in Gangwon province. Andong sikhye differs in that it also includes radishes, carrots, and powdered red pepper. Also, it is fermented for several days as opposed to one. It is important to note that the crunchy texture of the radish is kept despite the longer fermentation process, since a soft texture would indicate an inferior product. Andong sikhye is appreciated as a digestive aid and sikhye also helps in digestion because Lactobacillus bacteria yeast.
