What we're about

Do you see fermentation as an art form, science and little bit of magic? Does transformation of simple foods to super foods awe inspiring for you? Does your pantry look like a science lab? Are you passionate about the super Ks.. Kefir, Kombucha, Kvass, Kimchi? Do you enjoy fermenting your own sodas, beer, make your own wine? Does the crackling sound of your ginger bug excites you? Is your fridge always stocked with pickles, sauerkrauts, yogurt, sour cream and cheeses? Is your gut flora thriving and in love with how well you take care of it? Well, if you said yes to any of that, we would like you to be part of this fun group! In this group, we share recipes, learnings, Scooby’s, grains, bugs and lots of laughs! This is not a group to promote business or sell you anything! We meet as friends, have a good time and grow in our knowledge of the art of fermentation! Look forward to seeing you soon.. happy fermenting!

Home Brewing - Step 2 Ginger beer and hard ciders!

Needs a location

In the last, super fun meetup, we got the ginger beer ferment going! In this meetup, we will reap the reward of our hard work.
In this happy hour meetup we will enjoy the ginger beer that we fermented... sparkling, chilled and by itself or as part of epic cocktails.. Moscow mule and dark and stormy! So come to have fun, bring friends or make some like minded friends in this meetup!

We will also discuss the next set of steps and skills that you will need to take your home brewing game to next level. We will discuss and understand Yeast, discuss Lees, Why, How and When of Racking and Degassing and how to do that? Also, we will start our next brew.. Hard Cider!

This is an inperson meetup and a happy hour meetup :). So come prepared to have a great time! Please RSVP only if you intend to come.. it helps with the arrangements.

Cheers,

Fun Cabbage Ferments - Kimchi and Sauerkraut

Needs a location

Kimchi is made by fermentation of napa cabbage, veggies and seasonings including onion, ginger, garlic and hot chilli pepper! This holds a strong significance in Korean culture. This food is rich in Vitamins, including vitamin C and D.. plus, minerals. Ofcourse it is loaded with probiotics and supports your digestive system. Sauerkraut is a close cousin of kimchi, dill pickles and other forms of fermented vegetables. It is simple to make, but there are so many variations! It has the same benefits as Kimchi and is equally delicious.

Kimchi and Sauerkraut are evidence that the magic of fermentation can convert simple ingredients into delicious, super foods! This will be a hands on meetup. We will make sauerkraut and kimchi. You are welcome to make both or just one! The list of ingredients will be provided to folks who RSVP, closer to the event.

This is a happy hour meetup, so please feel free to bring in your favorite German or Korean brew :).. Also, bring along your friends and/or make some new like minded friends at the meetup!

Cheers,
Gagan
