I Wanna Make Home-brew Shoyu. Am I Nuts?

ricepad | Jan 14, 2009 07:14 AM

Every now and then, I get the urge to do something out of the ordinary...sometimes WAY out of the ordinary. The latest urge is to make shoyu (soy sauce) at home. I know the basic ingredients (soy beans, wheat, salt, water) and *general* brewing methods, but nothing about quantities or ratios or temperatures. Do I absolutely need Aspergillus mold? Anybody got any wisdom or advice for me?
