Reduce Odors and Speed Up Decomposition
In a kitchen compost bucket, crock or pail, sprinkle All Seasons Bokashi directly on top of kitchen food waste and close the lid. It is very important to cover the entire surface of food waste with All Seasons Bokashi. When added, All Seasons Bokashi will prepare food waste to become high quality compost. Repeat the process, until the bucket is full. The sweet, pungent aroma of the treated food waste is a good sign that the composting process has begun.
Reduce Litter Box Smells - Naturally
All Seasons Bokashi is an all-natural odor controller that is safe for use around pets. Just sprinkle 1/2 cup of Bokashi over the existing litter to keep your cat box fresh. Repeat as needed.
Revive Indoor & Outdoor Plants
Adding All Seasons Bokashi to lawns, gardens and container planters will deliver nutrients and improve soil texture.

I struggled to get my compost going in the past, so I am very grateful for this. We are not all all precise about the balance of green to brown or the moisture levels, and the compost is still beautiful come spring. Easy to use, reduces trash, and helps my garden.
It wasn't terribly long after getting my first Bokashi composting pail that I realized one wasn't going to be enough. The main thing about using Bokashi is that you can put anything food in it, so that means more gets composted than for the other methods I tried, and winter time isn't good for burying the compost. I also wouldn't want to have to deal with the second phase of the process based on having the pail be full (I want to be able to pick a time when I feel like doing that major chore). I find one pail lasts 1-2 months, but it might last only 1-2 days if doing some heavy-duty canning. I've also held treated scraps in another pail that allows drainage, and there are plenty of options if I need more space. While it took a great deal of work to build, I also have a rat-proof container I use for the final composting of the treated scraps. It is mostly buried and right next to my leaf composter; shredded leaves make a great odor barrier (avoiding rats again) as well as contribute to the overall completed compost. Having several pails means I only have to even think about dealing with the labor intensive part every 3-4 months. Having the rat-proof screened container for the final composting makes it easy to check to see if the previously buried compost is ready to be screened when I'm dumping in another batch. Some of the bigger items such as bones take a few cycles to completely decompose, so screening is important. I use the 1/4 inch hardware cloth lid to my rat-proof container for screening purposes.
As far as the indoor component, I have a separate scraps container, so I treat and put in the Bokashi pail only every few days. Having the smaller container means I can easily assess just how much Bokashi to use. I had some problems at first, had to supplement dose hard to recover one container, but haven't had any issues this last year.
I'll end by saying I tried someone else's Bokashi formula once, and I won't go there again. It had a powdery component that ended up in my face during use. SCD Probiotics' product is granular so it distributes smoothly where you put it. It's very consistent. One package lasts me about 2 months, so maybe saving $1-2 just isn't worth 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.
