Kombucha SCOBY

Kombucha culture is used to make a healthy probiotic beverage which is good for your digestion. Based on experience and confirmed by variety of research, it also supports your immunity system and lowers risks of variety of cancers and allergy reactions. You will learn how to brew your kombucha so you can do so at home or your local hackerspace and you will take with you manual and of course the life culture.

Brewing your kombucha is fun and you will all learn how to make it "easy peasy Japanesey!" I'll show you simple way how to make kombucha beverage using black tea, light brown sugar and stable and long living kombucha biofilm culture - SCOBY. Manuals will be handed out, electronic form is already available here. You will learn how to take care about your culture from A to Z. Basics but strong and lasting. We will also chat about various alternative usages like making kombucha vinegar and possible applications for micro-cellulose fiber produced by this culture (hopefully with some samples). We will share the culture of course, you will receive the result of our "long term breeding hack" Kombucha cosmopolita, started already a while ago consisting from SCOBY's gathered from all around the world and regrown together! Of course there will be various tastings as always, we will see who brings which. The workshop is donation based, no one turned away for lack of funds. If you can chip in €5, that would cover it, €10 and more would give us some extra funds so we can do more projects, the funds are truly needed, thanks!
