Bread kvass with honey and raisins
And starter for this brew. Doing this brew for more than 15 years. First starter I had a mother-in-law she told me as making the brew itself. But I empirically deduced slightly different proportions and technology. And brew began to be tastier than hers. And the mother-in-law I have learned to do it. And then I starter to do adapted. The brew comes out moderately sweet and similar to the brew barrel, which was sold at the Union. Now purchase the brew I drink at all can't. Some of it is too sweet and unreal. By the way, for those who follow the figure. Calorie content of this brew approximately 25 Kcal per 100 grams. So 2-3 cups a day, it is possible to afford! Well, take a bottle on a picnic - he told God!

First brew seems too sweet, but then the sweetness goes away and it turns out - it. If it's cool, the brew, alas, will not work : (
That's almost the finished product.
Remove the top "whole" pieces of bread, put in a quart jar and put into the fridge. This is a starter for the next batch of kvass.
Brew filtered through gauze. Pour it into plastic bottles or in glass jars. Out on average about 9 liters of kvass.
And sent to day in the refrigerator. During this time the sediment will settle. Brew will ripen and gain sharpness. Generally comes in glass jars taste better than in plastic. But three banks do not always find space in the refrigerator.
The next time the yeast does not need. Pour the yeast on the bottom of the pan.
Fill the breadcrumbs and then all the text...
