      Foil packets are a problem

      I love the starter but it is hard to get all of the powder out of the foil packets.

      So easy!

      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”.

      Success the first time

      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.

      Prep is awful

      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.
