Preparing Bokashi Flakes at Home


  • 20kg (44lb) wheat bran
  • 185 ml (3/4 cup) molasses
  • 20 liters (5 gallons) of liquid
  • 100 L storage box
  • Liquid or rice-based microbe culture

Prepare Bacteria/Nutrient Fluid

Fill a 5 gallon bucket with water (preferably non-chlorinated or let the bucket sit overnight so chlorine evaporates). Add 3/4 cup of molasses to water. Stir to dissolve. Add liquid bacterial culture and stir, and/or crumble rice based culture into liquid.

Add Fluid to Bran

Pour a 3 inch layer of bran into the plastic box. Pour liquid into the box and mix by hand. Continue adding liquid until the bran holds its form after being squeezed. The bran should hold together but not drip liquid when squeezed. Add layers
