Learn how to make naturally fermented probiotic drinks  with The Fumbally fermenter Ailbhe Walshe.

  • ginger bug
  • kombucha
  • kefir

For over four years now we have been making all our own naturally fermented and carbonated drinks in the Fumbally cafe. This workshop is an introduction to these processes, their health benefits and how to care for your starter cultures or ‘mothers’. We will taste each one of the ferments together and learn about the love and care needed for each one, storage, natural carbonation methods and flavour combinations. You will also get to make and take home a ginger bug starter.

a jar (approx 200ml) for your new ginger bug to get you started at home
