What is Second Fermentation?
Second fermentation is an additional fermentation step to add excitement to your brew. Sugars are converted to acid and carbon dioxide gas.
You can experiment with a range of different juices, whole fruit pieces, herbs, spices, honey and superfoods to create an endless range of different flavour and nutritional combinations. The fermentation helps to unlock nutritional compounds in your foods, making them more bioavailable but most appealing is it creates the most delicious probiotic milk kefir, low in lactose and much more economical and probiotic rich than store bought products.
How to Second Ferment Milk Kefir
- Once you've fermented your milk kefir, mix in a jug, milk kefir + honey + fruit pieces + any spices and superfood like turmeric, acai, spirulina, maca, matcha chia seeds etc + any herbs like mint, basil, nuts etc. We recommend starting with a small piece of lemon or orange peel or a couple of fresh berries. You can even make a savoury version using garlic, pepper and herbs. The flavour combinations are endless. So have a play. There are lots of recipes ideas in our free NourishmeOrganics VIP Group here
