Fermenting Adventures: Kombucha 101 (Video)

Not too long ago I stumbled upon this Kombucha video. If you’ve read this site recently, you already know that I’m on a natural soda kick and you already know that I’ve shared a few Kombucha videos. But I haven’t shared one quite like this… This video is the longest kombucha videofeatured on this site, […]

Fermenting Adventures: Honey Garlic & Kombucha Tea

Well… look at my ferments! I’m so happy. I now have three SCOBY’s! I guess I should have posted a picture all of them below, however in the first picture you only see one. As I mentioned in a prior posts, I want my SCOBY discs a bit thicker and so I’ve added them to […]
