Abstract : Production of Tannase by Bacillus licheniformis KBR6 has been done through solid state fermentation. Different materials like rice bran, saw dust, rice straw and sugar cane baggage were used as substrates for solid state fermentation. Rice bran with moisture ratio (1:4) at pH 5.0, incubation period of 168hr. and temperature 35°C was found most suitable for enzyme production.
