Hi, I am using Ano Phyo's wonderful recipe to make kimchi but could still use some advice. Mine has been fermenting for one day and I want to do this right!

This is a really good thread about fermenting kimchi and sauerkraut or any veggie! No whey needed, just real sea salt! Huh, never heard of using oyster sauce or MSG in fermenting!!! the thread above gives a really good blog & video of fermenting veggies. I hope it is helpful!

Hi, new to fermenting and looking for a great vegan kimchi recipe or perhaps sauerkraut. amazed at the awful selections of online Kimchi recipes. One included oyster sauce (I'm allergic to shellfish and vegan) and another urged adding LOTS of MSG. Augh!

That would be great!

I'm really excited to get started, and my kids think it looks great. They like watching the time lapse videos on youtube already. :)

Sean, I'm sure we have a few members out there in Texas- if you'd like me to put out an appeal in the Christmas newsletter, just let me know!

If you want to start easy, kefir is by far the simplest food to ferment, in my opinion- you plop the grains into fresh milk, wait up to 24 hours, strain the grains out, plop them into milk, then use the drained kefir. Simple!

A good browse through our archived threads will show you the extent of our passions.

Oh, I think ginger beer is actually extremely easy! And I have failed at several other fermenting "projects." check out my post about it and give it a try. You don't need any starters to get started.

I'm new to fermenting as in I haven't done anything myself yet. I just finished reading Wild Fermentation and loved it, but I'm looking at getting started slowly. I'd like to start with Kombucha as I love it on the rare treat I have had to try it, but I can't find anyone local in Texas with it available and online purchases are really expensive for a college student with a family. I've started putting together a collection of large glass jars and crocks though, and hopefully will have enough saved up by christmas to start! I came across a jar of Bubbies pickles that my kids love and my wife and I both love sauerkraut so I can't wait for those as well. I honestly got interested because one of my favorite drinks is Ginger Beer, but it looks quite a bit more difficult to do, so that will wait until I'm a bit more comfortable with everything else.
