June 24 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
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. 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.
Optional tastings are included.
In this 2 hour class you’ll learn the basics AND can take home a complimentary organic scoby ($15 value right there!) – you’ll leave ready to brew your own!
What You’ll Learn:
Materials and ingredients needed to brew
Basics of brewing and timelines
Flavoring in the second fermentation
Creating a sco-tel (scoby hotel)
Other uses for scoby
Participants should bring a container to take a scoby home with you (glass is recommended, 2 cups or larger)
