Book Description

28 Sep 2012
This short book is a guide to making your own fermented, probiotic drinks. Using beneficial cultures, like the good bacteria in yogurt, you will learn how to create healthy, delicious drinks that benefit your body. For thousands of years, long before sugary soft drinks were invented, our ancestors enjoyed the whole food goodness of fermented drinks such as kefir, kombucha, and naturally fermented ciders and sodas. If delicious raw food smoothies were not around 5,000 years ago, it is only because our Stone Age ancestors did not have good blenders. Fermented drinks are tasty, easy to prepare, and incredibly healthy. Yogurt, kefir, kombucha, and other probiotic drinks are made by adding cultures to base ingredients such as milk, sweet tea, or fruit juice. The cultures consist of beneficial microorganisms, such as Lactobacillus acidophilus, which add live enzymes, B vitamins, and protein to your food. Contents Include: 1. Probiotic Foods for Better Health Improve Digestion and Strengthen Your Immune System 2. The Benefits of Fermented Beverages Lose Weight, Nourish Your Body, and Boost Energy Levels 3. Drinkable Yogurt It’s Easy, Quick to Make, and Tastes Great 4. Rejuvelac The Goodness of Sprouted Grains in a Glass 5. SCOBIES: Ancient and Modern The World’s Most Natural, Complex Probiotic Cultures 6. Alcoholic Content of Fermented Beverages Booze Content is Usually Less Than 1%, But Be Careful 7. Kefir: Milk and Water-Based Versions The Secret to Longer Life? 8. Kombucha Delicious and Healthful Beverage 9. Ginger Beer Naturally Brewed With a Unique Culture 10. Home Brewed Ciders and Sodas Bottle Your Own Naturally Effervescent Sodas in Any Flavor 11. Probiotic Smoothies Drink Your Food…Delicious and Nutritious 12. Additional Recipes Wait till you try some of these!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful 19 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very useful introduction to probiotic drinks. I've been using water me for for some time now and still learned a thing or two. The book explains some of the background which I found interesting and suggests recipes which is nice. The second are clearly laid out so you can easily just read the boss you are interested in. If fermentation is brand new to you, learning about the different options available is very useful too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for Beginners 19 Feb 2013
By B. Hanni - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This has great information for learning how to make healthy probiotic drinks. It discusses each drink and the specific health benefits that it provides. It is pretty basic, though, and wouldn't give much additional information to someone who has already started culturing probiotic foods. For example, the section on kefir has basic information that one would usually receive when purchasing kefir grains. It would be helpful for someone who got some extra grains from a friend and had never tried to make it themselves.

This book is best suited to someone who is going to be culturing their first batches of probiotic drinks. I found that I used it as a guide when making my first batch of kefir and kombucha, and didn't need to use it after that.

This ebook is a great high level resource on making your own probiotic drinks. For only a dollar, I was very pleasantly surprised. It provides good straightforward DIY info to make yogurt, kefir, kombucha, ginger beer, and rejuvelac.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just In Time! 23 May 2013
By WrittenWordLover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had made a batch of kombucha (certainly not my first, I'd made it several times in the past) and got this the day I was to test my batch. It was as if my kombucha never took off. It was just week-old sweet tea! I was so disappointed. After reading this guide I learned that the kombucha needs a slightly acidic environment to develop. Well, I had used alkaline water to make that batch so there was no way it was going to develop. Without this book i wouldn't have known that and probably would've thrown my $20 scoby in the compost bin. I tried again, this time using purified water with a mid-range pH level. 12 days later, I have gorgeous kombucha!

Now, I am going to try the kefir recipe using coconut milk. This book has inspired me.

This was a pretty good book. It gave some history and how to. The only thing it was missing was a beet kvass recipe.
