Fermenting Workshops

We’re finished with our fermentation workshops schedule for 2018.  Watch this space to see the 2019 schedule.  You could also follow us on facebook or instagram to find immediately when the new schedule is available.



This is our all-rounder ferment workshop that has been packed with aspiring fermenters since its conception in 2012. These Workshops are four hours long (or longer if you want a brewery tour) and great for those who want to get a handle on a range of fermentation techniques and recipes including ginger bug, kombucha, water and milk kefir, fire cider, sauerkraut, and fermented vegetables (we also might throw in a cultured dessert).

This workshop also includes a nutrition and gut health presentation, recipe booklet, instruction, and loads of fermented food sampling. Participants also have the opportunity to purchase cultures, fermentation vessels, and fermented products that we make at our brewery on the day of the workshop.
You’re lucky, many of the Buchi Brew Co. and Gutsy Ferments gang attend these workshops so your instruction is from some of the best in the industry.

Participants will have the opportunity to purchase fermenting starter kits, mother cultures, assorted ferments and supplies at the workshop.

The cost of the workshop is $100 and includes a nutrition and gut health presentation, hands on fermentation techniques, recipe booklet, fermented food sampling.




Our Wild Thing workshops are specialised workshops where you get to go deep and learn about a specific ferment, get your hands messy and bring home a jar of your own work. These workshops are limited to small class sizes and designed to allow you experience the joy of crafting your ferment under the guidance of experienced fermenters. They are mainly facilitated by Director of GUTSY Ferments Wei’er Higgs and Director of Buchi Brew Co Dr Sarah Lantz. Other fermenters may be brought in when deemed necessary. We take our fermenting seriously!
