The changes in taste components of kanjang made with barley bran during fermentation time were examined. The pH was gradually decreased and total nitrogen content reached to 0.7% at 90 days fermentation. Five kinds of free sugars, three kinds of volatile organic acid, and eight kinds of non-volatile organic acid were detected. Lactic acid known as abundant component in kanjang was not detected in kanjang made with barley bran. The content of free amino acid was $422.9{\sim}803.6\;mg%$. Glutamic acid was most abundant component among the amino acids, followed by proline and phenylalanine. Essential amino acid content was revealed $34.3{\sim}37.3%$. Based on result of sensory evaluation, it was most comfortable to eat sample of fermentation $45{\sim}60$ days.
