For example, I have already planned the place for rinsing sprouts under the sink.
So I also want to take fermenting into account.
People stop sprouting when it is not quick and easy.
Same with fermenting?
I may not think about all the precise questions to ask, so this is opened.
I think that LF veggies needs nothing special, and they keep easy and long.
But many more things can be fermented.
I have a question about temperatures. I have read that this is an obvious issue.
So I think that 2 places are needed. What temperature are needed as warm and as cold?
Someone spoke about the need of a "sitter" when going away during cold weather. The visit in Japan mention that temperature is maintained thanks to the koji fermenting process...
Well, I have no oven! An insulated little room?
When the food is fermented, then you need a fresher place to slow down the process!
Well... I try to leave with no fridge... I can get a constant 16°C in a cave.
then, is humidity to be watched when you do thinks like tempeh, miso...?
Miso needs 1 year, where do you keep it and with what regular temperature?
Ever thought about conceiving a home kitchen that helps to be comfortable at making all this regularly?
Yes, it should be comfortable when you have to be regular for new batches.

Thanks, very good information! I want koji, miso and tempeh.
Does tempeh need the same?
Greens too, but there is no problem for this. Normal kitchen + cave or cellar seem enough.
Then I want to age and ferment normal raw goat cheese. (I have made a specific post about it, as I have started to experiment, and the result is "strong"!).
Meat will come later... I would like to stay off-fridge...
In my kitchen, I can easily close one part and transform it into a little warm room, if 165cm x 90cm is enough.
