I’m so excited about sharing this Post!
The wanderer and I have been Brewing Kombucha and it’s Amazingly Rewarding.
SO WHAT IS KOMBUCHA YOU ASK??
The 1st thing you need to get Brewing is a SCOBY. A SCOBY or MOTHER is the most ugliest pancake looking live culture that I have ever seen!! You can see them here floating at the top!
You can order them ONLINE, or make your own using starter tea, and a bottle of Raw Kombucha from your local store.
Or you can go to a cool Kombucha brewery like we did!!!
Another awesome incorporation to Science, Health, and Math for the kiddos.
It took us a bit to get this train rolling as we only started with One fermentation. But now we have 4 going!!!
Basically you allow your tea to ferment twice! 1st ferment is creating tea into kombucha. 2nd you get to flavor it and more carbonation occurs. Our 2nd fermentation was flavored with Concord grape juice, super yum! And orange juice, not so yum, we won’t do that again.
The other 2 we filtered and were able to get 3 jars out of them.
You can flavor it more naturally with fruit pieces and fresh squeezed juice. But this was a simple quick and efficient way to get yummy kombucha.
Now we can use these names and it just makes them that much cooler.
Hey Ma, can I have some tropical twist kombucha???
Hope you join us on this Kombucha journey. Just one more step to a Healthy life!
Best part – we do it all together. Projects like these connect our family from the inside out.
