Well I don't make exactly "bokashi " per se. but I do make a homemade version of it with kitchen waste. Then when I build a compost pile with leaves grass clipping or ramial wood chips I layer it with the saved up coffee cans of my homemade version of bokashi. A layer of leaves, a can of bokashi, a layer of ramial wood chips, a can of bokashi, etc..

I also use horse manure between layers when available.

Yes it does make your compost pile kick off and heat up much easier, and break down faster.

But keep in mind, I am not using real bokashi, as I never paid for the original culture inoculant. I honestly don't see what the difference could be, but your mileage may vary.
