HomeMade KOMBUCHA Tutorial


If you have known me for even a week, you know that I have to have my Kombucha!


So here's the deal. 4 years ago this last April my husband and I stopped drinking Alcohol. Before that my husband would brew beer at home, and it was so cool to have something to drink that was homemade. It just tasted better.


Since we don't drink soda, or alcohol, or anything artificially sweetened, I did have a craving for something bubbly and tasty. Coincidentally, shortly after, I developed pretty sever acid reflux that was affecting my singing voice. Being the crunchy chick that I am, I wanted the most natural remedy possible. So, besides my regimen of supplements and probiotics, Kombucha seemed like a great addition! But let me tell you, it can get expensive! I had to figure out how to maintain my Kombucha addiction without breaking our bank! I always wanted to make it myself at home, but Marc was skeptical.

Luckily our good friend Kristina started her own homemade booch brew, and we were able to taste it. Ps. It was delicious! Then for Christmas last year Marc hooked me up with all the supplies I needed. Kristina supplied me with our first S.C.O.B.Y.


What the heck is a S.C.O.B.Y?


S-ymbiotic

C-ulture

O-f

B-acteria and

Y-east


Think of the scoby as like the coral reef for Yeast and Bacteria. Sounds gnarly right? But instead of gross yeast and bacteria, this is filled with amazing probiotics and digestive benefits. It creates natural carbonation and flavor!
