“Readers who have little knowledge [of Bulgarian bacillus in kephir] may be surprised by recommendations to absorb large quantities of microbes, as the general belief is microbes are all harmful. This belief, however, is erroneous. P. 181, Prolongation of life

I was intrigued by the whey-method although I kept thinking, "This really can't work. It sounds like a bad idea." I had my undergrad class check out whey-ferment vs no-whey, using the German crocks. Wow. I should have listened to my original thinking. Bad idea! Don't use whey! Not only is it low-count, but the flavor is awful and the texture even worse! Love your Pickl-It! Great tool for teaching!
