The veg needs to be completely submerged. Anything sticking out will rot, not ferment. Your set-up needs to breath. No air-tight containers while it is fermenting. Once you transfer it to the fridge, air-tight containers are fine. My kitchen... (more)

My homemade yoghurt is never as thick as the store bought. Gelatin works to thicken it, just make sure you buy quality gelatin. Let it sit in the coconut water to bloom, then heat.

Well basically it is not paleo because it is a grain, but many people choose to eat it. Really what most people suggest around here, and I agree, is that if you are able to eat it and have no negative side effects, go ahead. I personally am fairly... (more)

Try some! You can buy GT's kombucha in most Whole Foods, Food Co-ops and health food stores. Try the "original" to keep the carbs low and get an idea of what home-brewed would taste like. If you don't like it, you are only out 3 bucks. (more)
