Make Your Own Kombucha
February 19, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Since around 70% of the human immune system is found in the gut, healthy bacteria and probiotics are essential for optimal health. Kombucha, a traditional fermented drink, has an abundance of both! Join the founder of Oly-Cultures when she demonstrates how to make effervescent kombucha at home for pennies on the dollar. After exploring which teas and sugars lend themselves to kombucha, students will create their first batch for fermentation. As the brew develops and the second fermentation begins, Julie will discuss the best bottles for fermented kombucha, how to store the Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast (SCOBY), offer tips for customizing kombucha with natural flavors, and share a number of different blends with students.
