24 January 2019 Tempeh (Soy)

One of three loaves was removed from the fermenter set at 31C after 24 hours. The soy beans were wrapped in a cotton cloth which is used again after microwaving to sterilize. The cloth gets stained heavily. I usually extend the fermenting period to 36 hours, but the tempeh is now ready for use. The metal molds are perfect for fermenting. Five hundred ml of beans are processed in a batch.

Thanks for posting this thread BriceFrance, searching for a non-plastic method was how I found this forum.

Finished a batch of tempeh in foil covered Pyrex glass dish, and very happy with the results! :)

30 March 2019 Tempeh (New mold)

Sometime the mycelium would not permeate the body of soy. It was thought that insufficient ventilation was present during the fermenting. New molds were made by burning holes all around a plastic container. Two molds were processed with soy tempeh and they turned out perfect after 24 hours of fermenting at 31C. The mycelium reached all parts. Picture show the result. Each container is about 400 grams.
