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.

20 L 부피의 발효용기에서 어간장을 발효하면서 용기의 내부 온도 변화와 염도, pH, 산도, 총질소, 유리아미노산, 미생물 변화를 분석하였고 4개월 발효후의 어간장의 관능적 품질을 평가하였다. 발효용기로는 새 옹기와 재사용한 옹기, 스테인레스, 플라스틱 용기를 사용하였고 발효숙성은 외기조건에서 이루어졌다. 옹기가 가지는 통기성 및 보온성으로 인하여 발효 중 관여하는 미생물의 생육환경을 적절하게 조성하여 여러 가지 품질에 긍정적인 영향을 미치는 것을 확인할 수 있었다. 특히 옹기는 새 것보다는 재사용한 옹기에서 제품의 발효에 좋은 영향을 미쳐서, 높은 총질소, 유리아미노산함량, 향, 맛 전체적인 수용도의 관능적 품질을 보여주었다.
