1st floor 「Map of Ferment

 

Fermentation brings culinary delight: it is a work of art brewed by history and culture. With the development and progress of technology, more functional uses can be created from fermentation. Let’s begin by exploring this all-encompassing “vinegar map.”

2nd Floor: Traditional method of making vinegar

 

The Japanese Edo painting mirrors Taiwan’s traditional method of making vinegar. About 200 Hinoki barrels were used for aging and fermentation during the early years of Kong Yen Food Co. The size and capacity of the Hinoki barrel is the same as the model you see in the picture.

<pstyle=”text-align: center;color: #333333;”>您所看到的浮世繪是描述潭酵天地的家族,早期在台灣的釀醋工法,圖內所用的靜置醱酵桶皆以台灣檜木製做。在創辦人許嘉彬先生的祖父和爸爸的年代裡像這樣的檜木桶多達200個,實際尺寸就如同左邊的橡木桶一樣。

2nd floor 「Model of Vinegar Production Process」

 

Hsu’s Legend adheres to the traditional three step fermentation process and uses modern day fermentation tanks to ensure quality. The window exhibition provides full transparency of our production process. Three Step Fermentation Process:
1st Stage: Break down of complex carbohydrates into simple sugars
After rice is cooked and steamed into a mushy texture, koji (aspergillus oryzae) is added into the tank to ferment for 48 hours.
2nd Stage: Making Alcohol
Yeast is added into sugar to create alcohol. During this stage, alcohol goes through a filtration press machine. The filtered material is extracted into rice peptide to make our skincare products.
3rd Stage: Making Vinegar
Acetate bacteria is added into alcohol to make vinegar.

2ND Stage: Making Alcohol
Yeast is added into sugar to make alcohol. (The quality of alcohol will determine if the vinegar becomes high quality or low quality) This stage is also used to make alcohol as well as rice peptides used in skincare products.
3rd Stage: Making Vinegar
A pressing machine filters alcohol into a vinegar fermentation tank where acetate bacteria is added to ferment into vinegar.
