[Mountain View] Brew Your Own Kombucha

from 75.00

Kombucha is a lightly effervescent fermented drink of sweetened black and/or green tea that is used as a functional food. It is produced by fermenting the tea using a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast, or "SCOBY".

Before teaching students how to brew Kombucha and putting them to work, I first pour them samples of various Kombucha flavors, which we enjoy with a loaf of my sourdough bread. We'll also taste my other recent fermented creations. While students brew their tea, I discuss the history, benefits and process of fermentation. Each student goes home at the end of the night with a fresh young brew they made themselves and one of my highly coveted SCOBYs to transform that tea into delicious Kombucha.

What students get:

  • Samples of differenct Kombucha flavors
  • A taste of my latest cultured foods, including sourdough bread
  • A jar of fresh Kombucha that you to nurture at home
  • A lively SCOBY that transforms your tea into delicious Kombucha
  • A thin, breathable cloth to cover your jar during brewing
  • The skill and confidence to brew on your own at home

What students learn:

  • Why fermentation is so safe
  • What a SCOBY is
  • A brief history of Kombucha and fermentation
  • Which supplies and ingredients you need—and which you don’t
  • The basic brewing method
  • How to flavor your Kombucha
  • Tips and advice for successful brewing
  • Your questions answered in a small class of 6 students maximum
