Fermentation Fest Day 1


Good food, great exchange of knowledge, new friends, and some vaguely familiar faces.  

Takeaway points:
1). Organic peanut butter might give you cancer.  Don't you wish you didn't know that?
2). For best kraut flavor, chop your veggies, add salt, and press well to create a brine.  Add brine from a previous batch or some lemon juice if you need more liquid; try to avoid adding just salt water.
3). Slip into a groove, visit those common spots, and don't be afraid to say hi to that dude from that class when you see him later at the coffeeshop.  Culture culture.

Reedsburg feels strangely like home.
