    I just completed a test using two separate amounts of leachate and I was able to produce successful ferments in both cases. On the left (wide mouth) 1 tsp of leachate, on the right 2 tbsp. Both filled with approximately 500-700ml of 2% milk. Left ferment finished approximately 12-16h after the right ferment which finished in ~36h @ approximately 20 deg C ambient.

    My leachate was obtained from a Hungry Bin after pouring some water in the top of the bin and getting fresh leachate out the bottom.

    In my experience even with rice wash you do not need very much to start. I’ve successfully fermented 4L of milk with 1 cup of rice wash (72h).
