Each lesson will answer three basic and essential questions:
What? – What is this food and/or technique? What ingredients do I need? Why? – Why should we eat a certain food or prepare it a certain way? How? – How is the technique carried out or how is this food prepared?
Each lesson will come with one or more “Fact Sheets,” which are one-page (more or less) documents that quickly summarize an important topic. You might call them Cliff Notes. Plus an eCourse forum membership, a place to have all your questions answered while attending the course. Access the lessons on your time schedule.

I bet that e-course will be really awesome. If it didn't overlap with the other course I'd consider it.
A lady gave me some kefir grains once and I fed it honey water (maybe that's what the water kefir is like?). It tasted like kombucha! Amazing. I added heavy cream to it once and it turned into this thick disgusting mass and I had to compost the whole lot.
I'm completely convinced that modern day "soda pop" is an imitation of ancient fermented beverages: kvass, kombucha, kefir, beer.....it's an old habit for people to consume bubbly drinks. I've made a fermented drink from shredded sweet potatoes in honey water that apparently orginiated in africa - "sweet potato fly" (recipe is in Wild Fermentation) ....it's amazing. Convinces even people/children who "hate" fermented things that they can be really tasty.
I wish I could get some more kefir grains, there was a really quick turn around time (24-48 hours) with them. Where'd you get yours tamo42? What'd you kill yours with?
