Kairyou Choukaku-Kin Starter, 20g Spores/15kg Amasake Koji - Aspergillus Sojae
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.
