Koji Trays

Hand made by Anthony from Remaek fame -we have built a friendship over years now - starting with a rice paddle, then to Kraut pounders, to trays and even an incubator - all based on our love for beautiful and functional pieces with respect for tradition. These are beautiful, the aroma coming from the boxes is divine. I have treasured mine for over a year now and am loving them more with every batch. 

These boxes are beautifully handcrafted and made in Melbourne in the traditional style of Japanese koji trays. Not only hand made but from sustainable Australian timber including Western Red Cedar and Celery Top Pine. Constructed without glue or nails (!!) for longevity and to ensure that the Koji is only in contact with the timber.

Timber helps to keep the Koji stable, moist and prevent drying. Koji mould will also inoculate the timber which will strengthen your culture over time.

 User instructions

A light rinse or short soak is also recommended before you put your rice & Koji Kin into the tray for the first time, this will help keep some moisture in and around the Koji. The Koji can be placed inside a cloth or straight into the tray. Depending on your method and environment you may need to cover or wrap the tray & its contents to keep it moist & warm. A light clean after is fine, some Koji will stay on the timber, this is good. Dry the tray before storing, don't dry it in the sun, this can warp the timber.

Small (350 x 200 x 60h) > Fits: 500-750g rice

Medium (380 x 280 x 60h) > Fits: 750g-1kg rice

Large  (450 x 300 x 60h) > Fits 1-1.5kg rice

so all in all - treat like Gremlins, keep dry, keep out of sunlight, no dishwasher and never feed after midnight. (unless your schedule dictates it then this would work just fine).
