Kombucha is a fermented tea that is supposed to provide your gut flora with healthy bacteria (pro-biotics). I have been drinking kombucha for about a year now and decided it was time to try my hand at making it homemade.
I am in the experimentation phase.
I ordered a SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast) online.
Scooter likes to eat sugar in brewed tea and produces the good bacteria as a byproduct. Scooter also likes pina coladas and long walks on the beach. If he had legs.
My first attempt at brewing and bottling was okay. The tea turned out pretty sweet (even after 14 days), but I have a new batch going and will let it ferment longer, to hopefully cut down on the sweetness.
Each time a new batch is brewed, Scooter will make a SCOBY baby. So if anyone is interested in trying Kombucha themselves, let me know and you can adopt one of Scooter's babies!
