I will be the first person to admit the sometimes my idea of a healthy lifestyle conflicts with the reality of my lifestyle…make sense? Maybe not, so I’ll come out and say it, I like to drink sometimes. The worst part about drinking is the hangovers. I can remember two times specifically when I was so hung over and dehydrated that I could literally not move, I would drink water and throw it up. I was trying every remedy my weak mind could think of until my girlfriend came to the rescue with some kombucha. Kombucha tea for hangovers! I had heard about this but was in no state to actually remember, and no it was not an instant cure but oh my god did I ever feel a lot better after drinking kombucha. Since then every time I drink heavily which is really not that often, I drink kombucha before I go to bed and I hardly ever get hang overs. I use it as more of a preventative measure (don’t forget to drink lots of water while drinking too!). What made me think of the idea for this post was that last weekend I actually made a vodka and kombucha! This is genius people!
Trouble Shooting: Spewin Brewer November 21, 2007
So, sometimes you may have little difficulties. It’s natural, just like Kombucha. So, when I first got my GORGEOUS new brewer, i did everything jusssst as I should have, but when I got up the next day, i noticed leaking. LOTS of it.
What did I do? I called Dave. Guess what? I didn’t need too.
9.99 times out of 10, a leaky brewer is due to owner malfunction, not product malfunction. You must must must must MUSSSST put the spigot and washers on as TIGHT as possible. When you have it that tight, tighten it some more. it’s much better to tighten the heck out of it before you brew, or as I did, you’ll end up with:
1. a big ol’ mess
2. troubleshooting/blame session, and
3. a very wet hand.
