What live foods do you culture?

Right now I have nothing going on. I used to make kombucha and vegan yogurts. I am interested in making some vegan keifer with maybe coconut water... I also want to learn more about pickling and fermenting veggies like making kimchi and saurkraut.

I was reading the traditional foods vs veggies thread and it made me think of how many vegetarian foods are also traditional foods and how it'd be nice to have a few ferments around...

We've been making lots of fermented pickles - okra, kale, lemon cucumbers, radishes and turnip kimchi.  Yum!  My kids and I love them, but my sweetie won't even try them.


We also make sourdough bread in the cold months. 


I really want to try making some cultured soy products next - tempeh and yogurt.

I have a couple of jars of lacto fermented pickles in the fridge. Not sure if that is the right term - I didn't use whey to ferment, just salt.
