What is Koji? Koji is a kind of mold that has an enzyme to convert starch to sugar.
Koji is used for making Sake (Japanese rice wine), Miso (soy-bean paste), Shoyu (soy-sauce), etc.
As a mashing step is necessary to convert starch to sugar in beer brewing, the function of Koji is
indispensable to make sake. In the case of beer brewing, fermentation takes place after starch conversion has finished. In making sake, on the other hand, starch conversion by Koji and fermentation by Sake yeast proceed in the same fermenter at the same time.
