Anchovy soy sauce was fermented at ambient temperature in 20 L new Onggi, used Onggi, stainless steel, and plastic containers, and sauce quality was analyzed. Microporous insulated Onggi containers were found to promote fermentative microbial growth, thus creating desirable conditions for the preparation of good-quality anchovy soy sauce. The use of used Onggi containers yielded an anchovy soy sauce with high contents of total nitrogen and free amino acids, which afforded good sensory qualities with respect to odor, taste, and overall acceptability.
