High Season: what’s brewing in your cabinet?

26 Jun

As we sweat through another midsummer, fermentations thrive! Here’s what I have in my cabinet today. A few are alcohol infusions, most are ferments.



I have some writing to do about these, I guess! Stay tuned.

    I see in your picture that you have three different ferments going at once in the same place. Now, I make yogurt and sourdough (that I made from scratch no less with just flour and water–this is where my fermenting journey began). I will be starting my own kombucha as soon as tomorrow even and vegetable lacto-ferment next weekend. I hope to also start my own jun ferment as well (though people in this area don’t seem to know of it–or at least not the ones I know do). Do you ferment yours in a separate area?

    Common wisdom says keep them separate to prevent cross contamination. However, some sources say it doesn’t matter. What’s your opinion on the subject as someone who has more experience in these matters?

      I have my kombucha and jun fermenting side by side, have done it like that for years, and I’ve never had a problem.
