About the event
Kombucha, also known as tea mushroom, is a fermented, lightly effervescent, sweetened green or black tea. Thought to have originated in China, or in Russia or Eastern Europe, kombucha is commonly consumed for its supposed health benefits. It is produced by fermenting a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast, referred to as a SCOBY. The living bacteria inside kombucha is said to be probiotic, which may account for why so many health benefits have been attributed to the drink.
Learn to brew your own kombucha at home! We’ll cover the basic history of kombucha, and give an overview of its production, from brewing to sweetening, fermenting, flavoring, bottling and storage. Reid Emmerich of Root Wild Kombucha will instruct. Various flavors of kombucha, and homebrewing kits, will be available for sampling and purchase.
