Kombucha has been hailed as an ‘elixir of life‘. This tea-based, naturally fermented beverage is the product of a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (aka SCOBY). The fermentation process creates beneficial nutrients, enzymes and acids that improve digestion, increase energy and boost immunity.
Not only is making your own Kombucha fun, but it is significantly cheaper than buying it from the health store and you can be more confident in the therapeutic properties of your own brew.
During the workshop we’ll discuss the health benefits of kombucha, we’ll do some taste-testing of various flavours and we’ll do a full brewing demonstration, including a double ferment process that adds flavours to brews.
Participants receive their own SCOBY, starter liquid and a handout with brewing instructions to take home. We also offer full follow-up support via phone or email to ensure your brewing success!
We have been brewing this incredible, fermented drink for years and are so happy to share our know-how with you!
For those eager to brew right away, a complete kit is available for an additional $25 with everything you need for your first brew (6 L glass brewing vessel, cloth napkin, tea, sugar). Please order your kit in advance (send us an email), you can pay for it at the workshop by cash, cheque or credit card.
