Fermup The Fermented Food Podcast

Episode 10: To Starter or Not to Starter Culture

This week we discuss all things starter cultures; when to use them and when you might not want to. We toss around personal opinion (no whey) and research on the effects of backslopping in commercial sauerkraut production.

We finish up with a fumbling attempt at sharing an update on Branden’s “almost” koumiss attempts.
