Product Description

All Seasons Bokashi is made by fermenting wheat bran with molasses and SCD Probiotics. Bokashi has traditionally been used by Japanese farmers as a soil amendment to increase the nutrient level and microbial diversity of the soil. Bokashi is a Japanese word that means "fermented organic matter." It can be used as a soil amendment to increase the nutrient level and microbial diversity of the soil for planting. All Seasons Bokashi is used as: Compost starter in home composting efforts; Compost starter in large-scale composting operations; Fermentation starter; Soil conditioner; and Beneficial microbial inoculate. All Seasons Bokashi can be used as a microbial inoculant in situations where a liquid inoculant would be less effective such as in composting food waste and in compost toilets. All Seasons Bokashi is for use in organic production of recycled food waste. It also helps to cultivate the beneficial microorganisms as food decomposes, speeding the process of fermentation and reducing foul odors.

I'm new to bokashi and have just filled my first 5-gallon bucket. The trash smells great (if trash can smell great), and I'm getting a regular supply of bokashi tea. I dilute the tea and water my plants with it.

My intent is to make my own bokashi mix, but in the meanwhile I'm very satisfied with my purchase from SCD Probiotics. It was shipped in a timely fashion and it performs as it should.

Until I make my own batch, which has to sit for 2 weeks before it's usable, I'm ordering another bag from SCD Probiotics. For the reviewer that gave them 1 star, I believe it was because the product wasn't used as it should. Bokashi mix is for bokashi fermenting, not for traditional composting.

I haven't buried my fermented organic matter yet, and hope I remember to come back and post an update. In the meanwhile, I'm thrilled with bokashi fermenting and this bokashi mix does what it is supposed to do.

May 9, 2012 - An update:

My bokashi works as it should so I ordered another bag from SCD. I don't have a complaint about the bokashi bran, but I do have a complaint about the weight.

According to their label I purchased 1kg or 2.2 pounds of bokashi bran. However, when I put the bag on the scale (properly calibrated postal scale), the actual weight is 857 grams or 1.88 pounds. I didn't expect it to weigh exactly 1 kg, but I think 857 grams is a bit far from 1 kg.

The bag is unopened and in the same condition as when I ordered it. I still had bokashi mix left from my earlier purchase so there was no need to open it.

I'm curious to understand how SCD measures and weighs its bran.

I have to admit, I was skeptical of all the praise heaped on this bokashi business. However, I took a chance and ordered this product. Although many containers for this process are sold, I opted to use a 5 gallon plastic bucket already on hand. In a two week period 5 gallons of kitchen scraps such as tea bags, coffee grounds, banana peels and pizza crust were added, sprinkled and stirred. When it was sufficiently decomposed the whole contents were added to the outdoor compost bin. There were no foul odors at any stage of decomposition. Easy, peasy.

This is the second bag of this mix I'm purchasing. I've been using a much smaller amount of what is specified on the package and I'm really happy with the results. I'm about 3/4 of the way through my first bag and I've treated a little over 10 gallons of waste. I add fruit/veg scraps and peels, meat/fish/eggs/bones/skin, oil/grease, grain/bread/pasta, milk/cheese/yogurt, spiced mix ingredient entrees, receipts, kleenex/toilet paper/dryer lint, houseplant trimmings. I put in a good 2-6 inch layer of waste and then lightly sprinkle the bran on top. I will say that some of my scraps are anaerobically fermented products (yogurt, kefir cheese, sour kraut, etc) and that my be boosting the ability of this product to work in such small amounts. I find that as long as I have some coverage over the surface that I don't get mold. Every few days I'll use a potato masher to push everything down and at that point I'll drain some liquid from the spout. I'm pretty hit and miss on whether or not I chop things or throw them in whole.

When my smaller counter top receptacle (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001DYJ9ZO/ref=oh_details_o01_s01_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) is full I dump it into a 5 gallon bucket with screw top lid and sprinkle the top with the bran. When the 5 gallon bucket is full I let it sit for 2 weeks. I added 2.5 gallons from the first bucket to my indoor worm bin and mixed it through. I waited 3 weeks and I'd say its finished. Almost all of it was completely consumed and unrecognizable as anything. I also add old potting soil to my worm bin so the vermicompost automatically gets incorporated. There were a couple of clumps that it looks like the worms did not eat. They were somewhat powdery and grainy looking and broke apart to be flaky and dry.

So far so good, my bucket rigth now is 40% full, white mold is forming now.
Hope to complete the cycle as supossed to.
I made the bucket for less than $5 USD, including spout for draining the liquids.
If this works out well, I'm planning on doing my own bokashi, shipping to Mexico makes it a lot expensive.
I recommend you to start now and save some money making the bucket by yourself ;)
Make the plannet a favor !

about to buy my 3rd bag, this is the only brand ive ever bought. i built my own buckets and have filled/buried a few over the course of this year. i only use 3.5 gallon buckets but a bag fills far more then one bucket as reference. seems potent enough for me!

When I wanted to start bokashi, I bought this probiotic mix from amazon. Since then I have bought this product two more times. Its a great product and works exactly as it is supposed to be. However the bokashi smell is not at all sweet rather is smells like shit (especially the tea). But the end product is great for plants and while the composting is going on and the lid is snug you will not smell anything. But be prepared for the smell when you are going to take out the compost to bury it under ground.
