The #1 reason your ferments aren’t working is because they aren’t warm enough.
Each week I aim to inspire my posse of fellow fermenters to step out of the box and try new recipes but this week I felt that I needed to go back to Old Faithful.
BUT…Keeping the brews warm is the biggest stumbling block in the cooler months.
*remember that the first few ferments may not be very fermented because the grains are trying to get acclimatized to your specific water. Don't dump the liquid down the drain. *always do the second ferment and use pineapple juice to get your fizz going.
Here are 10 stealthy warming tips that that people have used and passed onto me. 🙂
Old Faithful Apple Ginger Water Kefir Soda
1/4 cup pressed apple juice
5-10 cubes candied or fresh ginger
Seal up the bottle and leave it in a warm place for 24 hours for the second ferment.
The water kefir eats up the natural sugars from the apples and the ginger and makes a super tasty, gut loving soda.
Your body will reap the benefits of 30 billion probiotics, enzymes, electrolytes, B12 B6 B1, magnesium and folate. As and added bonus, apples are full of vitamin C and the ginger provides gut healing relief.
It’s actually our #1 selling drink!
