Basic Whey
Basic whey used in lacto-fermentation.
  1. Put 2 cups of yogurt in a cheese cloth or stocking (my method) and hang it somewhere to drip into a glass.
  2. Let it drip for about 24 hours.
  3. You will be left with about 1 cup of whey. Transfer to a jar and store in the fridge until you're ready to use it.
Recipe Notes

Whey will last several weeks in the fridge and several months in the freezer.

  1. My daughter-in-law is allergic to I think the protein contained in dairy products (I’m checking further), she gets 2-3 day long migraines from just the slightest amount of dairy. Do you have any information that may indicate that using your basic whey and other products that have been fermented may not affect her

    1. That’s definitely a good question. I know that many people who are sensitive to dairy are able to eat fermented dairy because the lactose is converted to lactase during the fermentation process. But because I don’t know exactly what your daughter in law is having a reaction too, I can’t say for certain that this would be safe for her to drink. If she is in fact interested in making her own fermented sodas, you can always go the “ginger bug” route. Recipe here:

      Thanks for you question, Anne 🙂
