Since the taste of sake is much better if it ferments longer, try the rice to cook longer because it will contribute to a longer fermentation due to the hardening of the walls of beans.
After the rice has cooled, move it either in a jar or bottle, depending on where you have to wander to the future of sake — smooth as you can. However, before this action, the future capacity that will wander you receive the product should be properly sterilized, because the more precisely from its purity depends on the taste and quality of your sake.
