Event Description

Kefir is a probiotic rich drink that comes in the form or milk kefir, water kefir or coconut water kefir. All are different and all are full of beneficial bacteria that support your gut health. Learn about the different varieties of kefir and how to include them in your health routine in this demonstration by Kerris from Fermented Betty.

The History of Kefir

Kefir or kephir, alternatively milk kefir, or búlgaros, is a fermented milk drink that originated in the Caucasus Mountains made with kefir "grains", a yeast/bacterial fermentation starter. It is prepared by inoculating cow, goat, or sheep milk with kefir grains. Traditional kefir was made in goatskin bags that were hung near a doorway; the bag would be knocked by anyone passing through to help keep the milk and kefir grains well mixed.

About Fermented Betty

Kerris is an avid fermenter and a local Redcliffe resident. She has many years of experience in fermenting food and drink and is keen to pass on her knowledge to you, so that you may also reap the benefits of fermented foods.

Kerris is an educator who believes that we can all easily access these ferments without paying ridiculously high prices from health food stores. She believes that once the apprehension is taken away from this age-old practice, you will feel confident to tackle fermenting in your own home.

Kerris is a practical mum/wife at heart and grew up with a very budget conscious mother, so she knew that she could make these ferments at home saving herself a lot of money. She embarked on a journey of self-discovery and is delighted with where it has taken her today.

Kerris has been teaching fermenting workshops since 2014 and speaks at local community groups and local libraries, sharing her love of all things fermented. She cannot wait to pass on her knowledge of fermenting to you!
