Indeed, as Ernst Nolte proposed, Maurassian ideology of "aristocratic revolt against egalitarian-utopian 'transcendence'" (transcendence being Nolte's term for the ontological absence of theodic center justifying modern "emancipation culture"), the interrelation between Nietzschean ideology and proto-fascism offer extensive space for criticism and the Nietzschean ambiance pervading French ideological fermentation of extremism in time birthing formal Fascism, is unavoidable.
It can be made in 2 to 3 days through fermentation of boiled soybeans, adding "Bacillus subtilis", which is usually contained in the air or in the rice straw at about 40 °C without adding salt, compared with the much longer fermentation period required for "doenjang", another, less pungent variety of Korean soybean paste.
It does not ferment sucrose or lactose, using glucose in this pathway instead; glucose fermentation creates gas.
Maceration continues during the fermentation period, and can last well past the point when the yeast has converted all sugars into alcohol.
