Well-written with great recipes

Overall, I found Fermentation for Beginners to be helpful and insightful. This book would serve both the novice and the experienced alike. I’ve always thought fermenting fruits and vegetables would be difficult, but the book makes this process seem far easier than I’d believed. For those interested in learning the craft, the book offers background information on fermenting as well as easy to follow recipes.

So Great for a Newbie to Fermentation

I bought this book because I wanted to make cheese, but this has so much more to it than that. I love that it explains everything and gives me pointers throughout. Definitely worth buying if you want to learn about fermentation

I only recently versed myself in the science of fermentation. With this knowledge in mind i'm well on my my way to a kitchen scientist learned in the ancient traditions of my ancestors. Straight forward is the key that drakes press took upon the path of writing this text. I will adhere and practice these fermenting methods for alcohol in the near future as well as other recipes that i've read in this work.
