Junior Scientists, schools and home brewing enthusiasts, get ready to Make it Grain in the month of August for the chance to win big! In celebration of National Science Week 2021, Street Science has teamed up with food technology innovators Earlee Products to challenge you to make the heaviest batch of water kefir by the end of August. And if you’re feeling extra ambitious, you can get creative with your kefir brew to make your own unique, delicious flavour profile!
Street Science has fabulous prizes up for grabs for schools and members of the community who are keen to have a lot of fun with their fermentation. School entries will go in the running to win the grand prize of a Street Science incursion to the value of $700. For our families at home, the winning community entries will receive scintillating science hampers packed full of goodies for your junior scientist’s home lab, valued at up to $200!
Bring your kefir grains to life at the beginning of August, then challenge yourself with our tried and tested brewing process – found here – to get your kefir growing and reproducing as much as possible by the end of the month!
To enter, simply post two photos – one photo of your first kefir weighing, and then a second photo of your final kefir weighing to show the increase in weight over the month – in ONE post in either the Make it Grain Facebook event, or on the Street Science Facebook page or on Instagram by 11:59pm Tuesday 31st August, 2021. Make sure both photos show the kefir being weighed on a set of scales so that the weight is clearly visible, and calculate the increase in value over the month and include this in the post. You’ll also need to tag Street Science and include the competition hashtag #makeitgrain in your post to be eligible. Bonus points if you go one step further and include a photo of your second kefir ferment with your chosen additional flavour ingredients! See T’s and C’s below for more information.
There’s no better way to embrace the Future of Foods than by putting your home brewing skills to the test to concoct the ultimate fermented beverage. But if you’re new to fermentation and can’t tell your kefir from your kombucha, this video breaks it down for you.
