Tempeh Spores

“To be honest, this is the best strain of tempeh I’ve yet tried, super luxurious growth and great taste.” – David Zilber, NOMA

10 g of Tempeh spores. For each kg of cooked soybeans, you will need 1-2 g of starter. So with this pack you will be able to make 5-10 kg of Tempeh. If you are just starting out, use 2 g per kg.

These spores are mixed with rice flour. These are the Raprima brand spores from Indonesia.

Best stored in the fridge. Can be frozen for long term storage.

If you buy these spores and they pass the best before date, they just become a bit less vital, they don’t become dangerous or anything. Just use closer to 3 g of starter per kg.

Did you know? We now offer dehulled, organic soybeans. They are perfect for making Tempeh! No more manual dehulling required :)

    These spores are doing their job nicely. I had them grown on regular substrates and few unorthodox as well and all went well. Moreover the taste is more complex comparing to all the starters I had the chance to buy in Europe. In fact they remind me of the ones i was using when i lived in Timor Leste and was using wild ragi found on leaves. Great investement. I use 1g per kilo and it works like magic

    Ordered it last Weekend – Super fast delivery by the way – and made Tempeh with it this week. I grew the spores on Chickpeas and it went great. I was first a bit unsure about the doneness of the beans, because I feel like getting the moisture-content of the substrate is the hardest part with Tempeh (and Koji… :)) But it grew perfectly in my Incubator at 30 degrees. And after 12 hours i removed the heat source and let it sit in the insulated box for another roughly 20 hours, it went so fast and it tastes very complex and interesting – best Tempeh I made to date! I used 2g per kilo, just to be on the safe side :)

    Very good product. I used them on organic soy and my tempeh was a success. Delivery is fast for Switzerland (a few days), price is cheap and the team is very friendly. Highly recommended !

    Fantastic white growth! Smell and taste is awesome. Also it‘s extremely fast. My last strain needed almost 2 days. This one is done after one day!

    Very fast delivery just in a few days I received my order. As an incubator I used a horizontal dryer at 30° and I grew the white spores on millet. really pleasant nutty smell and taste. Truly satisfy

    Very good products. The spores are super active with super white mycelium, it also works with chickpeas, cannellini beans, sweet lupine or Okara mixed with grains.
    I let my Tempeh ferment for 30 hours at 31 degrees C.
    Thank you for a great product.

    Works really well!
    I’m new to tempeh making, don’t have any special equipment and I was still able to make tempeh only in 30h to 33h.
    Can’t wait to buy more when the new batch is available.

    I have made several batches of tempeh with those spores and soy beans (works also with non dehulled beans) or chick peas in my Brod & Taylor proofer at 31°C. The tempeh tastes very delicious and is ready after only 24-26 h. After 24 h it starts to sporulate quickly and dark spots appear, but that doesnt influence the taste.

  10. Mattia (verified owner)

    The spores arrived very quickly after ordering them. Given the very modest cost of shipment, this was a very nice surprise! They are moreover of the highest quality. I have already made several batches (using soy beans, chickpeas and lentils, etc.). They behave as expected, and give great tasting ending products. I am 100% satisfied and can only recommend fermentationculture.eu to anyone interested in making homemade Tempeh. I am curious to explore new products from this great team! Thank you!
