Deep Dive into Vinegar Making

The Most Comprehensive Collection of Vinegar Making Know How

Can't decide which vinegar course to take? We understand! We couldn't choose either, so Jori and Kirsten decided to offer all three classes for one low price.  

They each have different approaches to the process. You will learn a myriad of techniques--from wild fermentation and native yeasts to using cultivated yeast or starting from wine and other alcohol. 

This is your opportunity to nerd out on all things acid alchemy. The best part is once you buy it, you will own access to all the content. In addition, there is no expiration date.

Hi, I'm Kirsten and I ferment things. I began fermenting on our 40-acres small holding of wooded hillside on unceded Takelma territory over 2 decades ago. I didn't have the language to say that was what I was doing, I just taught myself to preserve everything that we grew. I didn't have a clue or the internet but I had plenty of passion and idealism to figure out how it was done "old school" and maybe, most importantly, I had nobody that told me I couldn't do this. My passion for food systems has been with me for over 3 decades and at some point, the two collided and as my responsibilities to raising children waned. I found myself sharing the passion and joy of working with microbes to create delicious healthy food first locally then globally. In this desire to see everyone have access to fermentation I've co-written (with my husband Christopher) the books Fermented Vegetables, Fiery Ferments, Miso, Tempeh, Natto and Other Tasty Ferments, The Big Book of Cidermaking and Homebrewed Vinegar. I have a lot of great fails. I think working with tempeh has given me the most humility as I've learned to push it past soy beans. The most expensive fail was the 30 gallons of sauerkraut that was fine in all ways except the texture--which was spreadable like butter. There is no market for spreadable kraut--yet. I am delighted to be able to share what I know with you here. Feel free to reach out through this platform or at kirsten@ferment.works.
