I’ve had a couple emails asking if I do anything besides radio? Over the next couple months I’ll trickle in a few posts in the “Non-Radio” category sharing some of my other passions.
The first one is Brewing Kombucha. Briefly Kombucha is a biological fermentation of sweetened tea that ends up a non-alcoholic, non-caffeinated, effervescent sweet & sour drink.
Here is the bottling from a May 23rd 2020 batch – Root Beer, Dandelion & Burdock, and Elderberry:
The Root Beer was flavored with Homemade Syrup made from Sarsaparilla, Sassafras, Wintergreen, Vanilla and brown sugar. The syrup added to sparkling water works well served on a hot sunny day.
Dandelion & Burdock is a traditional UK drink, which I am trying a direct flavoring by adding both to the bottles.
Elderberry is one I have made many times, and I use dried elderberries. I’ve also used Elderberries with added Ginger or added Lemon.
In all three flavors I am adding flavor after the main fermentation, rather than adding to the ferment itself.
If you are interested in knowing more, let me know.
