I am excited to be using Bierkashi/ Bokashi compost system and can't wait to see the results.
This is fantastic. I keep it in the house and as I get my scraps, left overs or when I clean out the frig it all goes into the bucket, found something that was freezer burned it goes into the bucket. Sometimes when I have to open the bucket I see white mold starting. Sounds silly but I got so excited because that means it's working.
I have already ordered another air tight lid so I can keep going.
This system is amazing!! Everything was white and fluffy after two weeks. I add it in my worm bin after. My veggies are loving it!
Items arrived quickly and well packaged. They look to be good quality. I have almost filled up my first bucket. I'm eager to do my part to reduce waste while creating compost for my garden.
High quality product. I love the addition of fpj in the bierkashi. Excited to get all this biology incorporated into my beds!
Great stuff!!! This bokashi took my compost to the next level, temps above 150f and the ability to compost just about anything
I’m new this is my 1st batch. It’s going pretty good, so far. I’m now waiting for the 3 weeks to pass before moving it to the soil factory!
I inadvertently stumbled onto this system while watching a garden U TUBE video with Wendi Phan, so I decided to try
Ì bought 2 systems, just started on the second bucket. First bucket is still fermenting
This system is very easy and manageable as compared to other systems that I have tried. No unpleasant smells or odors. I like the fact that I can use the system in my house instead of having to run outside every day to my outside composter
Most importantly the customer service is excellent! I had problems with one of my systems and Andrew sent a replacement within a week, no questions asked.
So far I’m very happy with this product. I’m very anxious to start my garden
to see how my vegetables grow.

I love this system as a way to use my kitchen scraps to improve the health of my soil! This is my third year using a bokashi system. I first started with SD Microbes but switched to a different brand mid-year. I was very disappointed with the quality of the product. So now I'm back! And I will not switch to a different brand again!
So easy - as a single person took a while to acquire enough food bits to fill the bucket.
Just finishing the first fermentation cycle and the smell is like visiting a brewery!
I always include a couple of buckets of bokashi in the bottom of my raised beds when creating them. I love doing something useful with my food scraps!
My Bierkashi compost does not always get a lot of fungal bloom, but the fermentation still does wonders!! Just 1 week in the hot compost after fermenting and things have broken down a lot already! The air scape lid and bucket without spigot make the system super easy to use!
Initially placing adapter was difficult since my arms are weak, but it’s working fine.
Placed indoors able to compost kitchen ware without any fear of bad odor
Love the fact that food scraps can go back into the soil food web. It’s nice to feel like you’re not wasting food.
These have treated me very well! They don't take long to fill up and the fermenting happens quickly when you can keep it in a 65+ degree ambient temp.
This is my 4th system! I've been using these buckets for about a year now and they work wonders on fermenting the waste food and foliage.
So far it’s working great! There really is no smell. This will replace our current compost set up of two countertop buckets. I love this system.
I’m a beginner gardener and so unsure about a lot of things. I saw bigcitygardener from Houston Texas has a SD microbes bucket. That’s where I’m from so I decided to try it. Well when I got it still unsure what I was doing. I sent email to co. Heard right back from Andrew about some concerns I had. He was so very courteous polite and very helpful. I think I will have some success. So bucket not completely full but with Andrew advice I feel I will be successful in my garden. Can’t wait to see❣️
I got my shipment very fast and after reading more about the bokashi I ordered 10 more pounds. So far my winter garden loves it.
Have been enjoying using the bokashi compost system. Being a newbie, I ran into an issue but received help right away. Much appreciated!
Top quality products that's why I keep going back. And ya may even get a little with your order gotta give the business to find out
I've ordered two of these kits and they're wonderful! No smell at all. I did have an issue with my 2nd kit where the bottom got cracked. I emailed Andrew and he had a new system on its way within 5 minutes with apologies for any mess created.
Great product and even better customer support. Will encourage others to buy kits whenever I can!
This stuff really works. Got so tired of the rats eating my compost! Now I have the enclosed buckets (6). I use one every week and by the time I come back to the first one, it is ready to go in the compost bin, and is too much like dirt to be eaten by rats ! Every victory in my garden is a major help to my life, so thank you so much for developing this awesome product. Also no more stink of any kind near my kitchen compost area, even though it is now a 5 gallon bucket! Everyone loves the beerkashi. Its great for the plants in the garden too.
SD Microbes' single-bucket system is a game-changer. My homemade 2-bucket system (see photo in my review of "Bierkashi Bokashi Blend") had me draining putrid leachate every few days. I'd ferment for 3 weeks, still draining leachate that was so rank-smelling I overheard my neighbor say it "smelled like poop" in his yard. Then, as the weather warmed, I discovered my Leaktite lid was *not* maggot-tight. Ugh.
I ordered the SD Microbes' bucket with Gamma Seal lid and tested them in the August heat. No leachate to drain, no foul smell, and after 2 weeks of fermenting, no maggots. I feel like I've earned my bokashi black belt.
Love all my products!! I feel like a scientist and my garden is doing well.
I don’t know how you guys are making it, but this is super active bokashi. This bucket was full to the top and had meat, bones; all of my food scraps. Your BierKashi chewed through almost all of it in 2 weeks. Thank you for the quick order fulfillment and I love the biodegradable burlap packaging! I’m going to add what’s left of the food scraps and the burlap sack to my garden! So excited!
I absolutely love this system! I bought two to keep things moving. It’s so easy and has allowed me to eliminate the use of a plastic garbage bag in my kitchen garbage because you can compost meat as well. I highly recommend!
Always love receiving my bierkashi! I use it to compost almost all my food and I do this all in my own kitchen! There is no foul odor AT ALL! When it's done I bury it in my 80 gallon soil factory! I used to toss my used soil but I've found a way to take that dry depleted soil and give it new life! I also incorporated red wriggler compost worms to the soil factory and top feed with organic scraps. This is just one way to use it.......its versatile! It's all kinds of microbial goodness and your plants will thank you. SD microbes is the .
So I’m no master composter BUT MAN this is some amazing stuff !
Literally I put all my vegetables (onions,tomatoes,apples,lemon,limes,orange all the antibacterial stuff i always heard not to and coffee grinds and it broke it down in 30 days I couldn’t tell what was what !
I love this product I 100% will recommend and purchase again
Great product, Easy to use and best of all, it eliminates all of my food waste!!
Amazing product!!! I just moved into a Townhouse and I love composting and was wondering how I was gonna do it in my new living situation and then I found you guys and I love it!!! The Gamma Seal lid is Awesome too!!!
