Everything Tastes Better Fermented

LANCASTER FERMENTS is an initiative of Lancaster Homebrew. Our mission is to expand our community’s awareness of the joys and benefits of fermentation. We have deep roots in the traditions of beer and winemaking, but take a holistic approach to home fermentation. Join us as we explore a wider view.

Discover the Art of Food Fermentation!

Are you curious about the magic of fermentation? Whether you’re a foodie, a health enthusiast, or just someone looking for a fun and educational experience, our upcoming workshop is perfect for you!

“To ferment your own food is to lodge a small but eloquent protest – on behalf of the senses and the microbes – against the homogenization of flavors and food experiences now rolling like a great, undifferentiated lawn across the globe. It is also a declaration of independence from an economy that would much prefer we remain passive consumers of its standardized commodities, rather than creators of idiosyncratic products expressive of ourselves and of the places where we live, because your pale ale or sourdough bread or kimchi is going to taste nothing like mine or anyone else’s.”

― Michael Pollan, Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation

Why Ferment?

Flavor: Fermentation transforms ordinary vegetables into tangy, zesty, and flavorful delights.
Health Benefits: Fermented foods are rich in probiotics, which support gut health and boost your immune system.
Sustainability: Preserve your harvest and reduce food waste by turning surplus produce into long-lasting fermented goodies.
