IF YOU CAN MAKE SWEET TEA, YOU CAN BREW KOMBUCHA
Brewing kombucha is as easy as:
- Make sweet tea (sugar+water+tea)
- Add kombucha SCOBY
WHAT IS KOMBUCHA?
Kombucha, simply put, is fermented sweet tea. It is made by adding a kombucha culture to a batch of sweet tea and allowing it to ferment at room temperature. Fermenting the sweet tea transforms it into a massively flavorful, tart, effervescent, and healthy beverage that we know as kombucha. The culture used to ferment kombucha is called a S.C.O.BY. During the fermentation, the SCOBY converts sugar into alcohol, which further breaks down into vitamins & enzymes. The resulting beverage is packed with probiotics, vitamins, enzymes, plus the added health benefits from the tea.
WHAT IS A SCOBY?
SCOBY is an acronym that stands for Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast and is the living force behind kombucha. While the SCOBY is most notably known as the cellulose disk that grows on the surface of the brew, the term refers to all of the living microbes throughout the liquid as well. When you purchase a SCOBY, you want to make sure that it comes with plenty of mature liquid kombucha, called starter tea. The starter tea lowers the initial pH of your brew and adds a high concentration of microbes to start the fermentation process. Our cultures come with 12 fl oz of mature starter tea which is the perfect ratio to brew a strong 1-gallon batch.
