Let's get right to the crux of the matter, shall we? This is a book about kombucha which falls short of being worthwhile in so many ways. First and foremost, I gotta ask...do words mean anything anymore or are books just thrown together with little or no proofing or editing? Case in point: the author is touting the benefits of using kombucha by calling it "infamous" and "notorious". Neither of these two words are correct, as both mean about the same thing and it isn't "good" it's "bad". I just can't look at a book like this and deem it credible when it is swimming in errors which are so blatantly obvious you couldn't miss them if you tried; and yet there they are, emblazoned on the pages like love bugs on a windshield. Misspelled words, words used incorrectly, errors, omissions, contradictions and the list goes on and on. What a mess!
Additionally, while the book does include some good information, it leaves out important information as well. You might have questions such as: "What is the preferred temperature range for brewing kombucha?" or "What does SCOBY stand for?" or "How do I test for PH?" or "Okay, you mentioned some names of acids and cultures found in the tea, what are they good for???" Don't hold your breath waiting for the answers to questions like these (or the many others you might come up with) because you won't find them in this book.
The title and some text of the book (location 199 for example) are misleading in that they imply/state that the book contains RECIPES (plural meaning more than one) for making kombucha. WRONG! There is only one recipe for making kombucha in this book, all the other recipes use kombucha in the mix. Tsk, tsk, tsk.
Sorry, but when you add it all up, there just isn't enough to like in this little ditty to give it any more than two stars. Better books on the subject of making and using kombucha are readily available.
