Second in our series of online tastings and lectures, led by our Director and Sake Specialist Oliver Hilton-Johnson, is this video all about the medieval yeast starter technique, Bodaimoto.
When and where did Bodaimoto originate? Why is it still used and by whom? Who re-discovered it after years of it not being used? What is the theory behind it and how does it help in sake production? How does it differ from other yeast starter methods?
