How To Make Soju

This is a comprehensive how-to video showing you the step-by-step process to make your own soju at home. We use a traditional recipe that starts with brewing makgeolli using chapssal and nuruk, fermenting in an onggi, and then distilling the cheongju to create soju.

If you already know how to make makgeolli, then you can skip to ~19:15 where the takju and cheongju has separated.

This is my first video, so please leave any feedback or questions in the comments!
