The quality characteristics of rice wine seed mash and rice wine made with different lactic acid concentrations were investigated. The pH decreased along with the lactic acid concentration. The total titratable acid content of the rice wine seed mash was lowest when 0.5% lactic acid was added, and the ethanol contents of the mash samples were not significant. The results of the measurement of the microorganism number, C (cell numbers of the total bacteria and the lactic acid bacteria), decreased along with the lactic acid concentrations of the mash samples. The yeast cell numbers of the rice wine seed mash samples according to the lactic acid concentrations were high (0.5, 0.3, 1.0, control, and 0.7%, respectively). The pH and total titratable acid levels of rice wine according to the lactic acid concentration were stable during fermentation, according to the increase in the amount of lactic acid. The organic acids in the rice wines were highest in the lactic acid. The rice wines to which lactic acid had been added had lower acetic acid contents than the control. Also, the acetic acid contents decreased along with the lactic acid concentrations, except in the rice wine treated with 1.0% lactic acid. The ethanol contents of the tested rice wines were not significant. All in all, in the sensory evaluation, the rice wines treated with 0.5 and 0.7% lactic acid scored higher than the other treatments.
