Raise a Glass to Fermentation: Homemade Kombucha and More - 90 min
What will I learn in the Workshop?
Get ready to raise a glass to the art of fermentation! In this class, our expert instructor, Mark, will guide you through the process of making delicious homemade fermented drinks. We'll focus on the core ferment of Kombucha, as it can be used as the mother for many other ferments. But we won't stop there - we'll also explore a variety of traditional fermented drinks from around the world, including kvas, tepache, shrubs, root beers, ginger beers, sodas, mead, and even flavored vinegars.
You'll learn about:
- Explore the history and general process of fermentation and discover the role of microorganisms in the process
- Master the basics of pH and acidity in fermentation and how to maintain the perfect balance for successful ferments
- Dive into the world of SCOBYs (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast) and learn how to start and maintain your own kombucha batch
- Get tips on kitchen habits and ingredients, as well as key equipment and resources for further learning
- Learn how to troubleshoot common issues such as mold, lack of growth, and off odors, and become a fermentation pro in no time!
