What weight/volume starter to 1 kg flour, half white bread half wholewheat?
What should the consistency of the starter be, firm or liquid?
I have just made my first batch of yoghurt roughly 500 ml
I used Soy milk
Am I correct in assuming it will last 7 days
Then I need to save 2Ts to make more
Do I need to heat milk and follow the same process as before
Enjoyed my 1st Kiefer produce from Crafty Cultures, awesome thank you Nadine.
Made my own Mozarella today! Im so chuffed! Thanks for the easy to follow recipe and great service!

Good day. Can you perhaps tell me if I have a 300 liter stainless steel insulated tank that used to be used for milk, if I can use that for fermenting beer?
These people know the Mooplehog launch date. Shhhh we're keeping it quiet, just told a few people on West Street and hoping they don't let on to anyone else. (That may be a big fat lie and an unashamed excuse for a promotional gimmick).
Thank you for joining in to Miller Town & Country, Crafty Cultures, The Museum of Dartmoor Life E-clips Okehampton and Alicia Jane Gift Ideas and Florist.
Very exciting workshop. Keep it up !!

Beet Kvass Recipe


1) 1 Large organic beet or 2 small ones
2) Fine sea salt / Himalayan salt 3) Filtered water


1) Peel and cut up 1 large beet or 2 small ones into 1cm cubes and place in your 1 litre fermentation vessel.
2) Make a 2% brine solution (add 20g salt to 1 litre water).
3) Fill the vessel with your brine solution, leaving roughly 3cm of head space at the top.
4) Cover your vessel with a Pickle Pipe or an Airlock and b**g. If you are using a glass jar that is not fitted with one of these, just close it as per normal but remember to burp it daily (!NB!) and do place it on a dish for if it starts to bubble over!
5) Leave your vessel to ferment in a cool, dark place for 1 to 2 weeks.
6) Strain out the beets and refrigerate the fermented Beet Kvass. WVALA! ENJOY!

Beet Kvass has delicious salty-sweet, earthy undertones and a lot of people choose to drink a shot of it as a health tonic.

Side notes:
1) If your vessel is not fitted with an airlock and b**g or something similar, remember to burp it daily and do place it on a dish then for if it starts to bubble over!


Good things comes to those who ferment!

What better way to kickstart new healthy habits than to try your hand at fermenting refreshing, probiotic rich beverages.

Your options? We recommend Water kefir, Kombucha or Beet Kvass for those trying their hand for the first time!!


Kindly note that our shop will be open from 12 in the afternoons on the 14th and 15th of December.
We will be closed on the 16th for the public holiday.

Make your yoghurt culture go a little further by using this handy method!

You can “stretch” your culture by spooning 2/3 tablespoons out of a freshly made yoghurt batch (this is called making a daughter culture) and keeping it separately in the refrigerator.

When you make a new batch of yoghurt, instead of adding new culture, just add this daughter culture. Remember to make a fresh batch of yoghurt at least every 7 days to keep your daughter cultures strong.

Remember to save this tip for later.
Happy yoghurt-making🍓

Carike & The Crafty Cultures Team


Last week we had an epic Instagram Live with @tummiesfulloflove for their collaboration with @babywombworlds and the series of introducing solids to your baby. We were quite overwhelmed with the response we got. People want to start introducing fermented foods into their diets but they just don't know HOW!

Would you like to try out a specific fermented food at home? Which one? Drop us a comment below 👇👇👇and we'll use this info to make a "how to video" for you mid next week! 📽🎬



Business Sabbatical around he corner!!💥💫❤

Remember to place your orders asap! Asof 1 June we will not be taking any new orders for quite a while!

Remember that rest and time-out is important when focusing of gut health! Without sufficient rest intestinal permeability issues can creep in (leaky gut) so that food and toxins are then able to pass through the intestine and into the bloodstream.

This in turn can cause havoc in your gut from inflammatory stomach pains to food sensitivities.

Take that vacation y'all!!!

We'll see you real soon!!!xoxo😘
