Product Description

Koji-kin Spore Starter, 20g spores for making 15kg Kome-Koji Rice

This packet contains 20g of Koji-kin spores (Aspergillus oryzae) for making 15kg kome-koji rice. This strain of spores can 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.
