Fermenters -- Day 9
http://windintheroses.googlepages.com/fermenters_day9.jpgDay 9

1. Kefir grains in apple juice
Fermented on day 6, put in a bottle to carbonate, coming along

2. Apple peel and raisins
Fermented on day 2, put in a bottle to carbonate, coming along.

3. Kahm covered oak leaves. 

Fizzy, but not much head. This isn't really a taste test so much as a test to see if it successfully creates a yeast starter from wild yeast, which it has done. It tasted of sauerkraut from when it came. I threw most of it away and used a small amount as an inocculant for the next brew, labelled kahm 2.

4a. Potato water, cooked and 4b. potato water, raw
I threw away the cooked potato water, which had turned pink. I peeled and chopped a small potato and put it in the blender with water for a minute. I then divided that in half, cooked one half and put the other in the lineup raw.

5. Kvass
still nothing

7. Peaches
These are fermenting fully. So peaches have taken 6 days (since I began them on day 3) to produce a strong wild yeast fermentation. Even though this isn't a taste test and it's just to see if it would ferment, which it has, I put the bottle in the fridge to chill to see what it tastes like. Peach ale, peach beer?

8. Moldy hay
Seemed to have lost strength since I diluted them, so I added some more sugar syrup.

9. Dandelions
Are showing some signs of life. When I shake the jar to get the dandelions, which float at the top, to mix back into the jar, there is a show of fizzyness.

10. Earth
I filtered out the dirt part and added some more water and sugar syrup.
