Shio Koji – Day 2: Goopy

The koji and salt have sopped up all the water and the mixture looks rather thick and inert. The smells are wonderful though, and certainly lively.

Koji has a quintessential chestnut scent and I can definitely smell that lovely fragrance coming out of the jar.

I used the mason lid to cover the mixture, but am not going to use the ring to tighten.
Some people say you can just use a paper towel to cover your container too–just something to limit the bacteria or dust that may fall into the jar.
