DIY Kombucha Class: the Mighty Booch

How to make kombucha



2 hours 1 to 20 (public classes), 12 to 40 label $70


Curb that expensive store-bought kombucha habit by learning how to brew your very own. This inexpensive and all-natural carbonated drink is great for your body, mind and soul. Join the Fermented Mumma as she details the process and benefits of fermentation, the problems with pre-packaged kombucha, and the endless flavour combinations for your custom booch.

The Fermented Mumma will introduce you to a SCOBY (which stands for symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast), the low-pH “mother” from which your kombucha will spring. First, black tea and sugar are brewed together to make the starter tea. This is then poured over the SCOBY, covered in a cheesecloth, and left to ferment. The yeast consumes the sugar, excreting alcohol, which is processed by the bacteria into vinegar, providing a natural carbonation and tangy zing. New SCOBY babies form in the process, and you’ll be taught how to love and care for your gelatinous new friends.

You’ll leave with a 3.4-litre jar of your very own kombucha ready to ferment, along with hard- and soft-copy materials to help you on your way to becoming a future kombucha producer.

 

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class

I have made kombucha before, but never really knew what I was doing. When I booked the class I was worried that I wouldn't receive enough information to satisfy the price, but I was mistaken. Jess was full of so much information. I learnt so much about why and how the process of fermenting works. I came out of the lesson so enthusiastic to start kombucha-ing again! And confident that everything will go smooth.

The Fermented Mumma was a great host; warm, friendly and very approachable. Would definitely consider taking one of her classes again.
