Making Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB)

I gathered the rice water after the wife was washing it for consumption, got 400mL in the jar with the paper towels and now just need to wait for a few days to pour the milk. Gonna try and get “still warm” milk from a cow farm nearby.

Will do good sir, i didn’t forget. Will remove the cream, it gathers by itself at the top anyway, it’s easy.

Step two.

Fermenting the milk with the rice bacteria gathered and wait for the yellow substance to come out! Is it ok to strain it @lotus710?

Rice wash will seperate into 3 layers. You siphon middle layer and mix with milk. fill jar 3/4 full max. Yours may possibly over flow. Right through your valve. Then the milk will seperate and form a curd ontop. Once the curd is formed (about 3 days) you can strain.

If you leave the rice wash a bit longer you will notice red green white and other colored bacteria. These are nitrogen fixing bacteria. Thus creating a “veg” LABS

Gonna go drain a little bit to prevent overflowing… Thanks Sensei.

EDIT: Done, drained the glass to 3/4 capacity. Done and done!

i used no fat milk u get less curd & more whey ( what u really want ) per gallon of milk , the end product was the same as when i used whole milk , the curd seems easier to strain as well thru cheese cloth

Thanks for the tip @fastslappy. Gonna put it to good use.

If i were you id use as whole as possible. You want as much food as possible and you want it fucked with as less as possible. Like your still warm milk… thatll fucking be incredible. No fat milk sounds like youve done some process to the milk like when you take the fats out of honeyoilXD

I’m gonna make it cow milk next time around. From an actual cow at a cow farm…
