Sure you could, but you run the risk of wetting the sugar and decreasing its osmotic drawing power. You want the sugar to be dry. Also, adding liquid is generally discouraged when making any of the sugar based solutions UNTILL AFTER fermentation is complete and you’re ready to apply it. Simply, the recipe doesn’t call for water because it doesn’t need it. True, if the LAB has been supersaturated with sugar already the risk would be less. If your knfFood material hasn’t been washed tho, lactobacillus microbes should be present on its surface already, so no need add anything extra. Cheers 🙂
