Fermenters -- Day 2

Day 2 How did these attempts to harvest wild yeast actually do? Continuing from Fermenters Day 1 and Wild Yeast Harvesting, covering the results from day 1 to day 10, and the conclusions. The story so far: #3, kahm-covered leaves, has already begun to ferment on Day 1.

1. Kefir grains in apple juice. I added some real apple juice to the kefir grains. There were a few tiny specks of foam at the top. Not enough to consider it fermentation and award it second place, but enough to hope that it will begin fermenting soon.

2. Raisins, apple peel and lemon wedge, now just lemon juice. Fermentation had begun, so it gets second place, but mold was forming on the lemon wedge. I altered the instructions on the website, which had said to use a lemon wedge. It now says to add a few drops of lemon juice from a used wedge of lemon, instead, even though the lemon wedge is still in the picture. I removed the mold and the lemon wedge and put the jar back. It should be OK.

3. Kahm covered leaves. Fermenting continues same as yesterday.

4.Potato water. Same as yesterday, still no fermentation.

5. Kvass. A little more white stuff on top but no fermentation.

6. The malt extract was increasing in foam at the top, so I put some of it into warm water in a plastic soda pop bottle with screw-on cap to use for this test, and put the remaninder into the fridge. The bottle I have made here will make a bottle of small beer (a beer with little alcohol) in a few days. Research is tough :-).
