How much did you pay for your last bottle of kombucha? Well, no more! This class will guide you through the different layers of fermenting kombucha at home, starting with the different teas, sugars and water. What to look for during your 1st fermentation period, how long to ferment, the best locations in your house to ferment, how to store your live cultures when taking a break, how to identify issues or concerns when they arise and so much more. In the 2nd fermenting stage you will learn how to flavor your raw kombucha with herbs, vegetables, fruit or combinations. You will also learn what bottles work best, the best temperatures for fermentation, how long to ferment, and how to achieve the desired and popular fizz naturally vs using forced carbonation. Numerous flavors of kombucha will be available to sample.
