    I LOVE MISO.. I currently have one thats almost 2 years old, aging at room temp in the fermentation station! It smells like chocolate in a way. whats your favorite thing to do with miso???

      How does it stay at room temp for a year and not go bad? Salt is the preservative but it can hold for that long? And afterwards last almost forever?

                                          Question about the salt - 1 tbsp can be very different amount soft salt depending on the type. For example, 1 tbsp of table salt is almost double the mass of 1 tbsp of finishing salt, because table salt can pack WAY tighter. Can you give the grams of salt instead?
