Make It Grain Competition

Get ready to Make it Grain in the month of August for the chance to win big!

Calling all junior scientists, schools and home brewing enthusiasts: in celebration of National Science Week, 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.

There are prizes up for grabs for members of the community and schools 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 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 Street Science’s tried and tested brewing process to get your kefir growing and reproducing as much as possible by the end of the month. If you’re new to fermentation and can’t tell your kefir from your kombucha, this video breaks it down for you.

How to Enter

  1. Take photos – one of your first kefir weighing, and a second one of your final kefir weighing to show the increase in weight over the month.
  2. Post the two photos in ONE post in either the Make it Grain Facebook event, or on the Street Science Facebook page or on Instagram by 11:59pm AEST Tuesday 31 August, 2021.
