  • The recipes I saw left the switchel out on the counter for 24 36 hours.The reason I like this idea is there are probably more probiotics in it this way, don’t you think?

  • Kombucha all the way. Wondering though in most of the recipes I looked at the switchel is left on counter overnight to start fermenting.. Why aren’t you?

  • Nice video content! Excuse me for the intrusion, I would love your initial thoughts. Have you considered Millawdon Reality Building Trick (probably on Google)?
