This rejuvelac is a drink containing plant-based lactobacillus that has a high survival rate in the intestines, and is effective against preventing intestinal cancer. The mild taste makes it easy to drink; you can also use it to make homemade yogurt or cheese.
Put germinated brown rice (refer to recipe) and water in a clean container, cover, then let it sit for 24 hours at room temperature.
Small bubbles will start to form, and when it starts to produce a subtle smell like the water used to rinse rice, it's ready. Strain the water into another container, and store in the refrigerator.
Drink the rejuvelac within 24 hours, add 1 liter of water to the container with the germinated brown rice, then let it sit for 24 hours at room temperature to ferment.
Story Behind this Recipe
This rejuvelac (grain-based fermented drink) is made with germinated brown rice and is easy to drink, since it doesn't have a strong taste. You can also use it to make homemade cheese or yogurt.
Each morning, I transfer the fermented rejuvelac to a container and store it in the refrigerator, then fill the container with the germinated brown rice with water, and allow it to ferment. During the hot seasons, store in a cool place to prevent it from spoiling. After reusing the brown rice over 4 days, refresh with new rice grains.
