This is a practical, efficient guide in a small package. I have made both kefir and ginger beer at home before and it is just this simple. --Wendy Palmer
Nice book! A few years ago, I attended a sauerkraut making demonstration by Sandor Katz. Since then, I have made my own sauerkraut and cultured pickles a few times. I'm excited to try my own cultured root beer and apple cider. -J. DeLong, Chicago
From the Author
According to Sally Fallon Morell, President of the Weston A. Price Foundation, humans have been enjoying fermented drinks for so long that both our soda and alcohol cravings may stem from a need for probiotic, fermented drinks. Fermented foods, including fermented drinks, are important aspects of a raw food diet. These were the beverages of choice for our Paleo Diet ancestors.
If you enjoy eating yogurt as part of a healthy diet, then consider trying some probiotic drinks as well. You will love the taste and health benefits of milk kefir, kombucha, ginger beer, yogurt smoothies, and naturally fermented ciders and sodas. Each of these drinks is quite simple to make using the same beneficial probiotic cultures that our ancestors have used for thousands of years.
Research has shown that naturally fermented probiotic foods and drinks carry important benefits for health, including the possibility of improved digestion and enhanced immunity. In my case, I definitely feel more energetic and vigorous from drinking some kefir or kombucha. I wrote this book to help other people discover these health benefits and save money over the cost of buying these beverages at a health food store or smoothie shop. I hope you enjoy this simple guide. Cheers! -R.J.

This book is best suited to someone who is going to be culturing their first batches of probiotic drinks. I found that I used it as a guide when making my first batch of kefir and kombucha, and didn't need to use it after that.
Now, I am going to try the kefir recipe using coconut milk. This book has inspired me.

This is a short book, almost a booklet, really. The book has a very folksy feel to the writing, but the information is good, and helpful for those new to fermenting.Published 7 months ago by Becky Rider
