~ Specialized Koji Kin Spore Starter for Making Amazake, 20g fresh spores for making 15kg Kome-Koji ~
This packet is specially isolated strain for making amazake. Contains 20g of Koji-kin spores (Aspergillus oryzae) for making 15kg kome-koji rice. This strain of spores can also be used for home-brewing Japanese ferments such as sake, Miso, Shoyu(Soy-Sauce), Shio-Koji, etc.
This strain finishes with a much more mild taste over the traditional koji spores.
This is a nice packet of fresh koji spores for the price. You can make one large batch or split and make smaller amounts or a little of each recipe type. Just started getting these direct from Japan and they sell very well. We thank our Japanese friends in providing such great products.
