Steam the soybeans until they're soft. Once cooled, mix the beans with the wheat flour to form a dough. Shape this mixture into small cakes and let them ferment for 2 days in a warm, humid environment.
Mix the cakes with water to create a mash. Allow this mixture to ferment for a week.
Strain the mash through cheesecloth or a fine mesh strainer, collecting the liquid. Heat the liquid, dissolving sea salt to create a brine. Let this brine cool before returning it to the mash. Allow this mix to age for around 6 months.
Strain the final mixture once more, removing any solids. Bottle it up, and let it age for a few more months before enjoying it.
