Kombucha Brewing & Knot Tying: Crafting Health and Functionality

June 19 @ 5:00 pm 8:00 pm

Unleash your creativity and practicality in this dynamic three-hour class that combines the ancient art of knot tying with the science of brewing kombucha!  Enjoy an evening of hands-on exploration into two diverse yet complementary crafts. Fun nite out for friends, a date nite, or to treat yourself!
Brewing kombucha at home is a fun project that  produces a fizzy sweet-and-sour tea beverage.  Kombucha contains B vitamins, antioxidants and  probiotics -nice health benefits from a yummy drink!  

It’s a simple process and can save kombucha fans quite a bit of money (a gallon for $1). Even better, you can experiment with it in a variety of ways, from the type of tea to the amount of carbonation, and add an array of flavors. Kombucha relies on fermentation, sweet and strong tea, and an amazing organism called a scoby. The scoby—an acronym for “symbiotic culture of bacteria  and yeast”— is essential for brewing kombucha.

Tastings with flavor discussions are included. You’ll leave ready to brew your own! 

We’ll have several organic scobies with strong tea ($15 value right there!) to give away by lottery, if you’re a lucky winner you’ll have everything you need!

We’ll break up the science and recipes with hands-on knot tying skill building! You’ll learn essential knots such as the Figure 8, Bowline, Reef and Truckers Hitch, gaining practical skills applicable to various scenarios, from outdoor adventures to everyday tasks.
