Welcome To "Fermented Dairy 101"! This class is a basic introduction to fermenting dairy. Not only are these ferments tasty, but they are full of probiotics to give your gut microbiome a boost! By the end of this class you will be ready to make your own:

  • Kefir (including primary and secondary fermentation techniques)
  • Yogurt (including how to make Greek yogurt)
  • Buttermilk
  • Creme Fraiche
  • Buttermilk ranch dressing and kefir sourdough bread

In addition, we'll be covering some basic terminology around pasteurization, how to tweak these ferments to minimize lactose levels, and how to troubleshoot some common problems. Hope you join us for this class. It should be a lot of fun!
