    I know but my attic get to like 90 in summer, and my ginger beer loves it. It would be ready in 24 hrs. Now it takes twice as long.

    I tried a seedling mat under the sourdough loaf today and it was just enough to promote a good rise (chilly here today). Would work for most ferments, I'd think.

    Ah, right...I remember reading that in Eastern Europe, there are vendors that sell it from a big vat - and there are big pieces of bread in it. I would definitely try it.

    It's always exciting when there's a lot of carbonation...I once opened a flip-top bottle and the pressure blew the top open out of my hands and sheared off a piece of the glass rim. I don't tell this story to people new to fermenting. lol

    Trying something a bit different. Apples, carrots, grapes, cucumbers, and raw honey. I'll let it set for three days and see what happens. After one night it smells yummy.

    FFN, I am just starting to look in to lacto fermenting. Any particular pitfalls one should consider? Where would I get the best info?

    Thanks :)
