The Kombucha Home Brew Master Videos Series is Finally Here… and it’s HUGE!

I HATE when “previews” have nothing to do with the actual movie. You get all excited about the 37 second over edited and produced clip that it becomes such a let down when you realize you spent your cash on something you were not expecting.

This video is NOT a Preview, It is THE ACTUAL WALK THRU of our Brand SPANKIN’ New KOMBUCHA DVD.

This was you can decide for yourself that this is something you want.

The difference between buying kombucha in the store and brewing your own kombucha February 3, 2009

I can break down the difference between store bought kombucha and brewing your own kombucha pretty easily:

PRICE
Probably the biggest thing is price. I’ll put it this way, if you buy a bottle a day, let’s say you have 30 bottles a month, 360-365 bottles a year at 5 bucks a bottle. That comes out to 1,825 dollars a year on kombucha tea alone! So much for that new computer you were planning on buying…BUT if you brew your own bottles it comes out to literally pennies per serving, there is the money that goes into buying a kombucha brewing system but after a month of not buying kombucha bottles at the store it has literally paid for itself.

CONTROL THE SUGAR, (kombucha good for diabetics)
You can control the amount of sugar your kombucha has. Most commercially brewed kombucha you buy at the store is loaded with sugar so unfortunately diabetics can’t enjoy the other benefits of kombucha. To control the amount of sugar simply brew longer and your kombucha will “digest the sugar” if you will. This process also allows you to control the fizzyness, some people like it super fizzy, some don’t, simply let it ferment longer for more fizzy kombucha.

CHOOSE YOUR OWN CAFFEINE LEVEL
Some people are really sensitive to caffeine so the idea of store bought kombucha isnt really a good idea. BUT!!! When your brew your own kombucha you can use non caffeinated tea such as honeybush and rooibos for kombucha brewing.

Bottle It! October 30, 2007

Hey guys! Sorry for the brief delay. I’ve been pondering my next steps…. the kombucha turned into a MONSTER! It’s big like a jelly fish. And it’s HUNGRY! Every day I taste the k-tea it gets less and less sweet. I was freaking out because I wasn’t sure what to do next… bottle it? Feed it? I talked to Dave, and it eased my mind. He told me to bottle it (in clean glass) and to put in 80% of the k-tea, so I’d have enough left over for the continuous brewing. I was worried about the whole precentage thing– but LUCKILY the tap is at the 20% point! So I was able to just pour it into a bottle until it didn’t pour quickly. Now, Wednesday when I see dave, I’ll pick up more dry tea, and make the kombucha a fresh batch to nibble on. My little Scoby’s so cute. Jodie. Sigh.

TIP!

make sure, as your scoby grows that it’s not popping out of the k-tea. Use a wooden spoon or a clean finger to make sure she’s a little bit submerged.

We don’t want our darlings to choke!
