Welcome to Get Fermented! the Art and the Alchemy of fermenting in the tropics.

The reason I started this blog was because I searched high and low to find recipes and information about tropical fermenting and couldn't find very much. The site is a bit clunky and sometimes has hissy fits (a bit like fermenting actually) but it serves its purpose. If you have a great recipe you would like to share or would like to guest blog, email and we'll do our best to get back to you within a reasonable time frame.

If you have any questions about any of my topics or why I  do what I do make sure you leave a comment or email me ok?

Alternatively, if you would like to know more about my professional work, and what else I do to help people change their lives, check out

    Hi Browyn came across your blog when I have been searching for Tumut Clee’s and thought I would drop you a quick line to see if you might be interested

    I am the 3rd great grand daughter of William Clee (1838 – 1925) who was a pioneer of the Tumut District. Sadly on a recent visit to the Tumut Pioneer Cemetery I discovered there is no visible headstone or memorial of his existence in the cemetery where he is buried. His descendants are joining together to correct this. I am trying to contact any interested descendants who would like to be included in the creation of a Memorial to William Clee and his descendants to be erected in the Tumut Pioneer Cemetery. Please contact me via Facebook or through my email address if you are interested in being included. Wiliam and his wife Annie had 14 children and it would be wonderful to have a representative from each of these lines involved in the Memorial.
    Thanks for taking the time to read my post.

      How lovely to hear from you Di! We’ve just returned from a week in Tumut for Steve’s father’s funeral. Not sure if you knew Ashley John Clee? I will email you as suggested and look forward to finding out more about this project.
      kind regards

    Hi Bronwyn
    Love your writing and your passion for fermented foods and more. I have just made my first batch of Kvass and about to do a couple of jars a veg to replenish the supplies. I am trying to get hold if a kombucha scoobi to have a go at KT and am wondering if you can help. Greenies had them but are currently out.
    Light and love

      Jan thank you so much for your beautiful feedback!
      I’m so sorry for this late reply – I’ve had dreadful tech issues and have only just now been able to log in after months of being shut out.
      Did you source a SCOBY? Are you still making Kvass? Have you made mango kvass?? I’m running a workshop here next month at Rawgasm if you’re interested?
      lots of love

    Hi Bron, I stumbled onto your blog while searching for coconut kefir grains. I have moved from Melb to Darwin and finding it hard to source kefir. And of course things don’t keep very well in this tropical heat. Your story is similar to mine, hence gut healing is first on my agenda. Please let me now if you’re selling kefir grains. Regards Veena.
