It seems to my completely alcholol illiterate mind that rice wine is a misnomer and should be a rice beer as it is fermented from grain but not distilled to something stronger.

Anyone know what's up with this naming?

Parallel fermentation in a single ferment. So it's really it's own thing entirely and the wine name is a western appellation for something similar. Got it.

Wonder what the rice process would produce with wheat or barley?
