Soy tempeh perfect. Fermentation was 30 hours at 31C. The perfection is apparent since one cannot identify the individual beans meaning the mycelium has permeated.

Thank you so much for all your posts Durgan, they are very helpful.
What ratio starter/beans did you use (Raprima or Indopol)? I started to experiment with these starters, am still trying to figure out the best ratio.
Thank you!

I ordered stater from Indonesia and keep it sealed in the refrigerator and some in the freezer. At first I used it sparingly now I use about a quarter of a teaspoonful. The amount doesn't appear to be critical.
Soy and chickpea are simple to make, lentil can be a bit touchy mostly overcooking.

I always make 500 ml, about two cups of dried beans to fit my molds. If I have too much I simply freeze it until needed.
