I "make" my kimchi using as a starter a jar of the kimchi I buy at my farmer's market. I add veggies of many kinds and then turmeric, sea salt, pepper. Let ferment for a few days to perhaps ten. I develops a yeast which I mediate in some way - clear it etc. It does "burp" bubbles. And it becomes a slimy condition Which I just mix up and eat - with no apparent affect on me. What is this slime?
Also sometimes - not regularly I add some raw milk or congealed curds produced by letting raw milk sit unrefrigerated for a week or two. BTW, I've been using raw milk for more than ten years and never had a problem. I use 6 or 8 ounces of milk in my daily smoothie; and very often use the separated milk whey in the smoothie. The curds of milk I use as a condiment.
I'm happy to post photos of the separated milk and the kimchi if any of you would think it to be helpful. Thanks
