Koji Barley Spore Starter, 20g Spores/15kg, Mugi Miso
This strain of spores are the best for those who wish to make Mugi miso (12 to 18 months), or Amakuchi Mugi Miso, mellow barley (1 to 2 months), even Nattoh Miso and Hishio condiments. A mellow barley 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.
