WOW, I am truly impressed!!! In all the years I have been eating tempeh, I have never thought to make it on my own. That is amazing. I can't wait to hear how it turns out. Although, I think that is one of those things that I will probably just buy because it is so cheap. I can get 8 oz. for $1.69 and it usually makes about 2-4 servings depending on what I make. Besides, I am still trying to work on breads...uuuggghhhh. Don't know if I will ever make a bread as beautiful as yours!!!! emoticon

Ok, it's over. It was not a complete failure but not anywhere near a success... only part of the tempeh was set. I removed the bags of tempeh from my incubator and let them cool a bit. Cut out the white part (where mycelium was formed) and saved them in the fridge. I will try to cook that little bit tomorrow to see if it's good enough for food. If that little bit tastes good, I will send in a full order for tempeh starter and try it again. For now, I am glad that I finally turned off my heating pad. I will make yogurt tomorrow.

Think I have a failed batch. It's almost 34 hours and the loose beans are still yellow and now they look very soft. There's no more white stuff forming. The part that had formed previously had become soft; even the one in the bamboo leafs is now looking soft. I will let you know by the end of the day.

It's 36 hours. I checked the bags of beans last night and only the beans on top began to ferment. It has a very nice and thick white color to it. But on the underside, the beans were still yellow and loose so I turned the bags over, hoping those loose bean would get fermented as well. I used Ziploc bags for the beans but I also wrapped a small portion of beans with some bamboo leafs just to see if it would make a difference. So far the beans in the bamboo leafs look very good (I opened it for a quick check). I will let the beans sit up to 48 hours then take them out. I know I will have one small one (the one in bamboo leafs) for sure but I am hoping the rest of them will turn out as well. Will keep you posted.

Have you tried to make your own tofu?

After tasting the store bought tempeh, I decided to make some at home to see if I could produce something better. The soy beans have been sitting there for over 24 hours but not yet set. It's going to be interesting.
