Want to learn how to make your own sauerkraut, brew your own kombucha and improve your gut health? Great, because that’s what we do around here.
Launched in the summer of 2016, The Wild Gut is a place where people interested in the benefits of fermented food and drinks can learn how to make them at home.
Hi, we’re Matt and Alana and we found our love for the world of fermentation while traveling around the world.
In 2014, we put our careers on hold and traveled the world for 18 months. At the end of our trip, we found ourselves overweight, out of shape and just plain tired. We purposely chose to spend the last five weeks in a small Guatemalan village on the banks of beautiful Lake Atitlán. It was here that we focused on getting our health back on track. Our daily schedule included hikes, yoga, reading and plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. On a whim, we signed up for class that taught us the basics of wild fermentation. We quickly fell in love with sauerkraut and kombucha and couldn’t believe how easy it was to make it on our own.
Now we’re back home and experimenting with fermentation in our own kitchen!
