Can you use too much bokashi?Updated 4 months ago

Yes, using too much Bokashi bran can lead to issues in the composting process. 

While Bokashi bran is essential for fermenting kitchen scraps effectively, an excessive amount can absorb too much moisture, leading to a drier mix that might not ferment as efficiently. 

The key to successful Bokashi composting is maintaining a balance; enough bran to cover each layer of waste and ensure proper fermentation, but not so much that the mix becomes too dry or the process becomes cost-inefficient. 

It's generally recommended to use approximately one tablespoon of Bokashi bran for every inch layer of food waste or adjust based on the moisture content of the waste materials.
