The Host

Simon began his journey into fermentation when he found some old demi-johns in a shed of the Walthamstow garden flat. First came country wine, followed by full-mash beer brewing then sourdough bread, lactic fermentation and more. In 2013 he founded the Fermentarium, an independent organisation dedicated to promoting the small-scale production of real fermented food and drink.
