Another book that I have been looking at lately is Wild Fermentation by Sandor Ellix Katz. This book is great for hippies. My fiancee sometimes accuses me of "turning into a hippy", which is completely unfair. Just because I spend a lot of time thinking about composting and sustainablility doesn't mean I'm a hippy. Or maybe it does ....

Anyway, the book is about using naturally occuring (wild) yeasts and bacteria to make foods and beverages. This includes breads, cheeses, krauts, and of course beer and wines. My personal favorite recipe is for "Hooch", which is a type of alcohol favored by prison inmates. I'm not going to go into details, but it involves fruit cocktail and a 55 gallon garbage bag. Yummy!
