  • Sounds a bit pricey to me. No thanks.

  • I thought the same. Will wait for the county fair to see all the same vendors.

  • Wow, way to expensive….pass

  • As a long-time producer of fermented food and beverage products this event sounded like an fine opportunity to talk shop and to share information regarding my specialized interest in producing amazake, sweet potato sake, umeboshi, and traditional squid and fish sauces — that is — until the event started to sound like a high-priced potluck.

    • Like your name @BluntsReef. Yeah, I got excited because I make ferments as well, but $35 times 2 for me and my wife and chances are my son will want to go, $105 is a bit much. With that said, it is a fundraiser.

      • If it is desired for an event like this to pave the way for future successful opportunities to showcase the art and chemistry of fermentation science — then it would be wise to make the gathering affordable.

        This said if one is really interested in learning about the the fermentation of food and beverage products they would probably better serve themselves by purchasing — the Art of Fermentation — by Sandor Katz. (AMAZON PRIME: ~$26.00)

  • i really wanted to go, but not at those prices. i can see a fee for overhead and permits, but just too expensive 🙁
