"If I didn't want to use nuruk (I'm allergic to wheat), can I use koji instead? Would it be a 1:1 substitution (ie. 1-1/2 cups of koji)? I tried looking for rice-based nuruk but couldn't find any."

"That recipe you linked to is more of a sauce than the chunjang paste, which should only contain water, flour, caramel, soybeans, alcohol, and salt. There should not be soy sauce or garlic or sesame oil or anything like that. If only I could find out the ratios for these simple ingredients, and how long to ferment it, it seems like it would be easy enough. But I have scoured the internet and there is literally NO recipe for this anywhere. It is a mystery."
