DIY Fermentation for Beginners

Step by Step Guide to Fermenting Various Foods & Beverages

Food fermentation is a hobby my grandfather started first, then my father got involved, and when I was about ten years old, I started getting fascinated by it. So it has been in our family for three generations. I am not a scientist, nor a guy with Ph.D. in Chemistry. I just love the food this process can produce and some of the true health benefits it offers. I have done quite a bit of research to find out the chemistry part of fermentation out of curiosity and found out what my family has been practicing for three generations now are actually safe and healthy.

I always wanted to write about the fermentation and interworking of this process along with what food and drinks it can offer us; I am happy that I was finally able to put together this book and share the amazing fun and benefits of fermenting various foods.
