- Basic+ understanding of how fermentation works
- Fun vegetable ferments to taste (aka snacks!)
- The science behind basic vegetable fermentation
- All the info you could ever want on the safety of vegetable fermentation

Yogurt 2 Ways || Saturday, October 14 || 12pm || $50 || A Culture Factory, Phoenixville, PA || BUY TICKETS HERE ||
One bite of tangy and probiotic homemade yogurt and it’s not hard to figure out why humans have been making it for thousands of years. In this class, we’ll cover the basics of making yogurt with incubation (thermophilic) with and without special equipment, and yogurt that sets at room temperature on your countertop (mesophilic)!
Everyone will leave with a thermophilic starter and a jar of mesophilic yogurt-in-the-making to ferment at home.
Snacks and fermented treats will be on hand for the sipping and chomping and samples of a wide variety of fermented dairy will be available for tasting.
