I love the starter but it is hard to get all of the powder out of the foil packets.
I used my instantpot to make this - ive heard that tempeh can be tricky, but it worked perfectly! On mine, the “low” yogurt setting was just right, and I put my black beans mixed with the starter culture on a ... I’m not sure the term exactly, but a disposable steamer liner, it’s like a super thin nonwoven fabric that comes in maybe 15 or 24 packs. No sticking at all. I did some in a baggie as well, lots of holes poked in, and it seemed to grow even a little faster than the “open-air” beans. So easy. I really thought it would be harder. Turned out delicious, too - I smoked it then vacuum-packed it with maple, salt, and black pepper to use as “bacon”.
Following the site’s info on how to, I was able to make a gross looking but yummy batch. I used garbanzo, stacking silicone bake wares with lots of holes punched in (In lieu of a plastic bag), sat on a glass ware with holes, weighed down with another (thrift store purchase), digital thermometer in oven, start bake for 2-3 sec from time to time. Done in 2 days. Good spore starter.
loved the quality and how easy it is to make your own tempeh at home. keep it up!
It took me three hours to get the skins of the beans. I'm just now waiting for them to get to room temp so I can culture them. I don't think I would ever do this again. Waaay too much hassle.
