I started reading Sandor Katz’s book The Art of Fermentation to give me some insight into future hobby General Fermentation. My first batched of ginger ale were based on internet scouring and compilation of recipes. But Katz likes the do things a little more authentically, using ginger bug from the wild yeasts on the ginger skins. I’m pretty curious how that will turn out and will keep it in mind for Batch #4.
The Art will also advise me on endeavors such as vinegar-making. I’ve got a bottle of Charles Shaw’s finest ready to be converted to acetic acid.
