Are you interested in brewing kombucha, but feel overwhelmed by the process? Not sure where to start? Need a visual on how to make it work?
Well…we’ve just released a video on how to brew your own kombucha! I walk you through the process, showing you all of the equipment, the process of starting your brew, cautions about what could go wrong (and how to prevent that), and how to bottle your kombucha in the double fermentation method. I demonstrate how to create pineapple and (my favorite) strawberry lemonade flavors.
I know when I first started brewing, it took me several batches to figure it out, and I was very intimidated by the process. I read directions over and over and over on various blogs, trying to make sure I understood how to do it. More recently, I looked at various kombucha videos, because I know many of you are visual learners (me too), and I was a bit disappointed with them. Many just did not go into detail about the process or actually do it, they just showed the equipment and briefly talked about how one would do the steps. Not very helpful.
So, I created my own video on how to brew your own kombucha. You can view it right here:
Some of you (also like me) love the visual, but also want more information about kombucha. What are the health benefits and why should you brew it? What are other flavors? What is the probiotic content? How to troubleshoot your brew? and so on.
It’s not really feasible to discuss all that in a short video, plus it would be hard to remember! Instead, I’ve created an accompanying ebook all about kombucha.
This book is free, all you have to do is subscribe. (If you prefer not to subscribe, you can buy it here for $3.95. Subscribers receive a code to get the book free.)
