First time buying directly from SD. Love this brand.
First time user but it has been working in my compost / food scrap bin.
I'm new in composting after researching the different methods I decided to go with bokashi after I watched a video (Wendi Phan). I have a bokashi bucket in my kitchen, I don't smell anything out of them (only when I open it to add more food scrap, it smells slightly like vinegar, but it's a good smell). I'm very happy with the BierKashi product.
I have been using Bokashi from SD microbes for a little over a year now. I had no idea what I was really doing at first. But, I got two stainless steel containers from Behrens which are made in USA and do not contain lead (very concerned about using plastics and other chemicals around things I will eventually eat or go into the soil). They are very difficult to get the lid off at times because it is on there tightly, but that is what you want with Bokashi. I also use an in home compost pail and really start the process there. I put a little bokashi in the bottom and then every time I add scraps, which I cut up because they break down faster, I add another layer of Bokashi on top. When I take the pail out to the garage to empty it, I do not need to add more Bokashi. It has been working out very well for us. We are an average family but eat mostly fresh foods. Outdoor compost was not working out well for us. It was time consuming and we don’t have access to large leaves. I do find with the Bokashi, that it doesn’t break paper down well so I open up my teabags and empty the contents into my bin. When the scraps have fermented properly, they go into our garden.
SD Microbes lineup of garden inputs is top tier
I love this stuff - I use it in all of my soil blends (including seed starting!) whenever I have it on hand. It’s like hammer-starting an engine: as long as there’s organic materials and/or a food source in your soil mix, bokashi will get the rest of the cycle cranking! Seedlings consistently emerge more resilient, and I’ve had almost no damping off since I added it to my protocol. Occupy your soil real estate with the good guys! ✨
I'm new to Bokashi and really like how it works. Just started my second bucket while the first one is fermenting. Also added some to my house plants. TY!!
Excellent product and quick delivery
We've been using bierkashi now for well over a year and it's been working wonderfully. We compost all of our kitchen scraps using the bokashi first before taking it outside to the compost piles. The 50 lbs bag lasts us quite awhile. I've also used it for inoculating our new garden beds and chicken runs.
These guys are awesome sent me 2 bags for 1 for a long wait. Woll definitely purchase from them again.
I use bierkashi to ferment all my food scraps and spent coffee that I collect from various convenience stores. No matter the food scraps (meat dairy, pasta etc) bierkashi helps to keep my compost makings from smelling up the kitchen and garage until I have collected enough to add to my many composting systems. I also use it when I top dress my garden beds to help add biology to my soil. Great stuff!
The beer kashi is great, I use it on my compost bin, i also mix it with my soil. Definitely some good stuff.
Excellent product. I have purchased several times.
Great product as always!
Nice, compact eco-friendly packging.
The bokashi composting process is perfect for our household. It completely breaks down food scraps, even things that are taboo for aerobic composting. I don't have to turn a compost pile. My cured compost bucket can be incorporated right into my garden beds. I do have a cold aerobic compost pile that contains yard and garden waste. I can place the bokashi compost into that pile during the winter months if the ground is frozen. This composting process does not emit any greenhouse gases as does the traditional aerobic composting process. One thing I would like to see changed would be the plastic biodegradable bag containing the bokashi. You should use a number 4 plastic bag which is readily recyclable. PRS, Richmond, Ky
This is the 3rd time I bought Beerkashi I love it. It really helps with decomposing our compost fast without a smell. I've never composted but watching the videos really helped to understand how the process.
This is great stuff. I've been doing bokashi, and experimenting with several different brands of bokashi "flakes". Sometimes we fill our bokashi bucket really fast, and other times (when several of us are traveling, etc.), it takes quite a while to finish filling it. Bierkashi has done the best job of keeping our bucket tidy and smell free, even when it's been filling up slowly and over a long period of time.
Love that bokashi
It is so easy to use and makes a great addition to my garden soil
Second time ordering. Great product. Even have other family members using it. Thank you
Great stuff at a great price. I mainly use for bokashi composting, but also add a handful along with any top dressing in the garden. Great results with both!
SD Microbes BierKashi has worked great in my compost bin, love it!
I love this stuff! I've been using it almost 2 years, and can't imagine composting without it.
It contains, ferments and enriches my kitchen scraps so I never worry about attracting critters to my outdoor pile.
My redworms go crazy for it, and the population exploded when I started adding it to the worm farm. Oh- and the burlap sack makes a great insulator-- while the worms completely decompose it!
Plus, there's the compost tea for spoiling for my houseplants.
Not many products made and delivered with such integrity, doing only good for the planet.
What's not to LOVE???!
Been using this product for almost 5 years and it is a must have in my garden you will not be disappointed
This stuff works great. Have two potted pepper plants side by side, one which I forgot to put some bierkashi in and just look at the difference!
Ok, this product rocks, this company rocks. I am located so close to them that I may pick up my next bag in person, if possible. I need to keep this stocked in my household because it's really that good. Plenty of great uses for it.
I just completed my first batch of kitchen scraps with bokashi today. It shows the white stuffs. So I m happy. I buried in the garden. Hopefully the kitchen scraps will turn to compost soon.
Premium quality bokashi. Cannot be compared to any other brand!!! 100% FACTS
Never an issue your products, customer service and fast turn around keep me coming back
I use this to break down vegetable scraps and it works amazingly.
Just got my Bokashi yesterday. I look forward to seeing it in action.
This will always be my favorite thing to spend my money on. Hands down best bokashi on the market. Andrew and his team produces the best microbes in the country. Much love to the crew!
It has felt very rewarding to use leftovers for the future good of my veggie garden. I’m a first timer n love doing it so far.
Good product. We’re very satisfied !
Great product. We got rid of our gnat problem thanks to Bierkashi. The garden has never looked better as we lowered our waste.
I am a beginner at composting. I learned about composting using the bokashi method, by watching the video. It's very easy to do and this stuff really works well. We put all scraps even fish and chicken bones in it. Using the beerkoshi, helps to breakdown the scraps. After about a month we put it in the soil. The plants love it.
Love this stuff !! Great edition to the grow ! And great way to add some Labs to the mix
Great bokashi bran and quick delivery.
This stuff is amazing!
Awesome! Our garden grows crazy with this stuff. Thank you!!
SD Microbes "BierKashi Bokashi" is an excellent product. My kitchen scraps grow white mold (a good thing, and safe!) when in the compost bin. While it ages in the basement, I draw off the compost tea from the bottom and add a teaspoon to each 3L of water for my house plants as a fertilizer. Before I found SD Microbes, I bought bokashi from a large on-line store, and the compost rotted. Flies were everywhere when I added it to my garden, not to mention the smell in the neighborhood which was embarrassing! I am pretty sure it came from China. I thought this was typical for bokashi, until I switched to SD Microbes!
This is my 3rd order, and I plan to always make Bokashi. Since S.D. Microbes is the best company making the best product, this will be a lasting relationship!

So far so good. Seems to be keeping the buckets going well. Excellent service!
This is my third order. We do bokish composting and also add it to my chicken bedding. This product works well for me and will continue to order as long as it works.
Been using this product for over a year and it feels good to know I’m not wasting any food and that it’s recycled back into a closed loop system.
I love using beirkashi when mixing new soil, top dressing and for composting kitchen scraps in a sealed bucket! Great stuff that goes a long way!
Love using Bokashi! Has cut done on waste (food scraps) and I’m now adding the broken down food to my garden beds (I added in the fall). The soil is looking great and having increased activity of worms! Can’t wait to see how well the veggies grow.
The kitchen waste composting is doing great. The chicken coop deep litter is rocking and no more smell. I can’t wait to add it to my compost pile after it thaws out from winter in New England. Once my 25lb bag is done I will be buying more.
This is amazing stuff if your having troubles to heat up your compost, haven’t been able to hold consistent heat, but since I started to use bierkashi bokashi, let me tell you it definitely works, and the enhancement of microbial activity is awesome! Haven’t even used for chickens yet and I’ll tell this, subscription is mandatory! :) <3
I have found this easy to use so far, I am hoping to add a lot of organic matter and fertility back into my yard
My bokashi just got here and Im looking forward to doing some more composting! There was a small delay in getting the order to me, but Andrew was very helpful in getting it squared away.
I was using another brand bokashi until SDmicrobes sent me a sample of his Bierkashi. Since then I’ve recommended it to so many friends because I believe in how much better it works for both composting, soil amendments and in compost teas. Plus it ships to my door and the prices are great.
The SD Bokashi grain looks and smells so good! Over the last 2 months been layering Bokashi grains with food waste, tamping it all down inside a 5 gallon bucket with an airscape lid. Plan to add this compost into an outdoor compost pile for decomposition.
Loving the bokashi so far! Half way up a bucket I’m filling and already got some liquid out! Thanks!
I love supporting family owned small business. Especially local ones. This product is great for the garden in so many ways. I use it to compost food, mix it into my soil, and top dress my fruit trees. Will continue to support.
This stuff is amazing! Works so good with anything, but especially good with the biovast compost
Arrived sooner than expected, nicely packaged in compostable materials. They even used paper tape in box packaging - fully recyclable.
A beautiful bokashi, used as a top dressing along with cover crop seeds. Hyphae everywhere, especially around old woody stems underneath. Thank you Andrew!
This beirkashi just explodes with mycelium just one day after application. I've never seen so much life so fast come from other bokashi brands. On top of all that, I really like that they use organic spent grains that would otherwise be thrown away. Awesome company and great people!!!
Loving this! I have two buckets going, one "good" for my veggies and other edibles, and the other with dog poop and chocolate doughnuts and other not-so-good things for my plants and flowers. Will also be using in my chicken coop when I get chickens next spring.
I love this stuff! I’ve been using it a little over 6 months now, am on my 3rd bag of bierkashi and am still enthralled with the process. I got a second bucket because the one that came with the starter kit doesn’t have a spigot to drain the compost tea- a hugely important “by-product” that my flowering plants loved! I keep both buckets going in 2-week rotation.
My photo attempts to show start-to-finish - 2 full weeks fermenting: I include pet food leftovers, meat, bones, yogurt, cheese, etc - in addition to the regularly composted materials. Layering, per instructions and suggestions from you folks. I add the “final” Bokashi to my compost barrel and it does seem to speed the composting there. Never stinky!
Finally, each barrel is dumped into my “soil making” pile, where I layer compost with native soil rotated out of the veggie beds.
Adding this live soil and compost tea last summer was totally worth the effort. My partner’s pot plants, spindly and disappointing the previous summer, were robust jungle plants this summer, and my tomato plants were vigorous and the fruit so big and plentiful, I had enough to share with friends & neighbors for the first time :-)
Adding to the quality of product are super- fast shipping, that nice burlap bag and the sustainable & honest product it packages. You are making very happy composers!
I’m pretty new to bokashi, but I have 4 buckets going presently, 2 each at 2 different households. Thank you SD Microbes and Kevin at Epic Gardening. Now when I don’t manage to cook, eat, or preserve everything I grow or buy, I don’t feel like I’m wasting it, but putting it back into my garden. I even clear out the fridge at work when we can’t use all the boss’ leftover CSA produce. And my coworkers are pretty sick of hearing about my bokashi buckets this-and-that, so I’ve got that going for me. Bokashi forever!
Got some beautiful compost after about 3 weeks. Still scared to add meat.
Compost was moist, not smelly.
I was recommended sdmicrobes bokashi by a friend and have to say i have only seen positive changes while using it as a soil activator, controlling odor in the kitty boxes, and jump starting our compost. To top it off Andy provides killer customer service and is full of tons of info. Sd microbes is a staple in our house and garden.
I use this product for composting and it works great, especially if you are composting in a 5 gallon bucket.
I use this stuff on every flowering run and I see a big difference in the nutrient uptake of the plants. This stuff boosts your soil life tremendously.
Great quality Bokashi bran that really helps process my compost! I really appreciated how they reused boxes and try to make more sustainable packaging! Will be purchasing again!
It goes in all my raw compost buckets and I love to see the mycelium spreading when they get opened up to dump in the big pit!
Works like a charm. We use SD microbes bierkashi to preferment all of our food scraps before they go into our compost tumbler. The faint fermentation smell is much preferred to the smells that would otherwise emanate from having five gallons of food scraps in the house. This allows us to add the food scraps to the composter en masse when we have enough carbon rich yard waste and such with which to process it. Heats up and churns out black, biologically rich compost much quicker than before.
Second bag of Bokashi grains. Seems to work well and once ordered really quick delivery.
Wonderful product and great service! Highly recommend SD Microbes!
Sd microbes beirkashi does numbers
I’ve been using SD Microbes Bierkashi for about a year and it’s made all the difference in my garden- the plants are greener, stronger and more vibrant than ever! Soil life is also buzzing compared areas where I haven’t added bokashi. Thank you!
Haven't tried bokashi bran from anywhere else so can't compare effectiveness, but this bran seems to be doing the job. I have not noticed any issues with my bokashi, and once I add the fermented food to the compost pile, it breaks down quickly. Maybe I could get cheaper bran elsewhere but I doubt I will since this is a good bran from a trustworthy small business. Definitely recommend!
I love this product. Really accelerates composting
Best decomposed ever!!
I’ve tried different bokashi but SD Microbesis the best. Thank you for a superior product
Great product! Used for organic cannabis soil beds couldnt be happier.
As always SD microbes bokashi is fresh and active. My plants, chickens and compost love it. Thanks for making great products and caring about the planet we live on. It means a lot to me. Thanks
I use this to pre compost my produce before it goes into a thermo compost pile. Gets the beneficial faculative microbes going in the produce, which both kick starts the compost process in a positive direction, and cuts down on pest pressures. As a Soil Food Web School graduate and current consultant in training I take my soil microbes very seriously. This product has become a staple at my developing homestead and will be a vital component of my consulting practice moving forward.
This product is remarkable. I never get a bad batch of fermented compost using the this product in layers. It smells great and goes a long way. To top it off, the customer service is awesome.
Absolute explosion of fungal growth within 48hrs in my living soil raised beds. Soil tests show amazing nutrient availability and plants are dialed.
Forgot to take a picture but got incredible white mycelium on my first try!
Interesting way to compost. I’m on my 3rd batch!
Best value for my composting needs!
You have always been on time with your orders and always a great product. Thank you for all the quality control as I have always received the best products from you.
This product is easy to use and it takes away the bad smell from food waste products and makes composting a pleasure!
Love the bran so far! Using it for bokashi bin in my house. Havent got to use the compost in the garden yet but will soon!
I absolutely love the Bierkashi, it makes perfect sense to use all the recycled material you can, and why not use it for the Bokashi? Fast delivery, great communication. I will absolutely be buying again.
Smelled so vital and alive, I can’t wait to see the results!
I really do not know how it is supposed to work but from what I have seen in my compost, everything is breaking down faster than usual. So, I supposed that is a good thing. Can you give me more info on how it is suppose to work or let me know if what I see is what it is supposed to be doing. Thank you.
Best product on the market!!
Been using SD products for awhile...and safe to say I'll be continuing for years to come.
Top notch quality, keep it up! Big fan
Professionals use Bierkashi, posers use Homegrown Bokashi! Prove me wrong!
I order 25lb satchels every few months and let me tell y’all something true and tested. This shit works. My soil has been the same for two years over five harvests and I get bigger and stickier flower every harvest. When I break the pots up after each reap, the medium is so loamy and fresh smelling, you can’t find one trace of the cups of Bierkashi that had been added at intervals throughout the veg & flower cycles. The terps on each plant are pronounced far more then Ive had when using any other form of amending or feeding. I use zero nutrients just Bierkashi and un ph’d well water magnetized and fed through a taurus spigot which structures the water before flowing into the medium. Im dialed the F in. Thanks for all your help and keeping this shit affordable for the kings.
