    At my local mega food store yesterday I saw they had Kikko rice wine
    vinegar for 50 cents per bottle with a little coupon on the bottle. Keep
    an eye out. If you make Thai sweet chili sauce; it's the shizzle. Gotta
    use RW vinegar, though. I've tried it with several different vinegars
    and , you need rice wine vinegar to make it.

    Related but not the same. Mirin is a wine. Rice wine vinegar is a vinegar.

    Mirin is not rice wine vinegar. It's more like sake... drinkable.

    I usually buy the least expensive one I can find because I don't use
    it often and end up replacing the bottle when I want to use it again.
    AFAIK, it's not fortified and goes bad... just like any other wine.

    Mirin is the wine, this stuff would be the vinegar obtained from "rice
    wine gone bad" as any vinegar is. Easy as heck to make your own
    vinegars. My knowledge of Asian goodies is limited. I just use this
    stuff for Thai sweet chili sauce.

    Unfortunately, I've had a batch of wine go bad once; and I ended up with
    5 gallons of vinegar. Great vinegar, though.

    Kikkoman is made in Walworth, WI; so I wouldn't use the stuff for much
    beyond what I use it for. 50 centavos a bottle is the attraction, here.


    10 oz bottle , it says distributed in San Fran (if your "SF" denotes
    your geography.) There will be a coupon on the neck of the bottle for
    $1.50.

    My real name is Greg, by the way. Greg"orio", ya know? I go by Gorio in
    the Spanish speaking world.

    Sorry if I rubbed you the wrong way. Sheldon just needed the response he
    wnated. I don't use a ton of EVOO, since I've curtailed my Italian
    cooking. My latest fave is unfiltered sunflower oil. MMM.

    I guess you wouldn't buy a Honda because it's made in Marysville, Ohio.
    Kikkoman is a Japanese company that has roots going back more than 4
    centuries. However they do not do all their production in Japan.

    Wow! I wasn't aware that Kikko had such a history. I just know they brew
    their soy sauce (at least in the USA) in Walworth, WI. I like the soy
    and have slready used the rice vinegar, and it is very neutral compared
    to other vinegars. The rice wine bottle just says "distributed by:". I
    hate that. Tell me where the heck the stuff was made. You get this same
    shady citation/reference with olive oils.

    Either way, the rice vinegar is good for the purpose of Thai sweet. All
    I care about at this stage.

    i think it would be a mistake to think of it as 'sweet wine.' it has a
    pretty viscous consistency:

    History of Mirin:
    The use of mirin is said to have begun over 400 years ago. Although it was
    used for drinking in the beginning, it has been used for only cooking since
    it was made to be thicker and sweeter.

    <http://japanesefood.about.com/od/saucecondiment/p/mirinprofile.htm>

    i don't think drinking even a small glass would be appealing. it provides
    a nice glaze for broiled meats, and is used in making teriaki sauce.

    there's a little more dope here:

    <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mirin>

    but the predominant taste is sweet, with a little alcohol note at the end,
    so it will be very different than a rice vinegar.

    kikkoman products are perfectly respectable (if expensive) in my opinion.
    (i have come to prefer soy sauce from china, like pearl river bridge, but
    that's a different style.) as far as i know, they use the same processes
    and apply the same quality control as kikkoman in japan.

    I became an accidental but complete convert to rice flour

    Sooo...ill give the rice wine (mirrin) a try, i dont like the Chinese
    rice wine, but i have heard so many good things about the mirrin that im
    curious to try it. I often use Japanese sake instead of the Chinese
    rice wine.
