Book Description

It seemed like everyone was talking about it. I kept hearing about this “fermented” drink that was so good for health. As time went on I knew I was going to have to try it, although it sounded kind of nasty or, at the very least, strange. One day, a health-minded client invited to take me out to lunch. In the refrigerated case were many varieties of kombucha. She got one for herself and asked me if I had tried it. “No, I haven’t tried it yet.” I was feeling a bit nervous that I wouldn’t like it and have to drink the whole bottle. I decided to go for it anyway. Did I love it from the first sip? No! However, I was able to get most of it down that day. Ravings about it from many people continued. I tried it a few more times and found it began to grow on me. Now, I really like it. As a matter of fact, I think I may be addicted! I wrote this book because I found that store bought kombucha becomes a very expensive habit and wanted to still indulge regularly without breaking the bank. I now make kombucha that tastes as good as or better than the stuff I used to get at the store. Follow the steps and heed the information in this book and you can easily make your own too!

I've been reading a lot of books lately as I prepare to make my first batch of Kombucha. I found this book easy to understand without all the fluff. I'd recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick read to get them started brewing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good information, easy to understand July 24, 2013

Except she says to put the scoby (Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast. Also known as your pancake of bacterial cellulose that actually does the fermenting) in the fridge if you won't be using it right away. That's a good way to cause all kinds of problems with your scoby, like depressing it's immune system and causing it to get moldy, and also it goes dormant and can take weeks to "wake up" if it does at all.

A better way is to make a scoby hotel and store the scoby at room temperature in a couple cups of plain kombucha in a mason jar and store at room temp in a dark place. When it runs out of sugar to consume, it will go dormant and happily sleep for quite a while. However, unlike when put in the fridge, it wakes up quickly when fresh sweetened tea is added and starts producing kombucha again immediately.

Otherwise it's a good beginner guide to brewing kombucha.

3.0 out of 5 stars Gives you the bare minimum July 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
While I appreciate the brevity in this little "how too" offering, I found it to be a bit short on the "how" and long on the "why". Yes, you will find information on creating your own SCOBY and ultimately producing your home brewed Kombucha, but if you are looking for recipes or myriad ideas...this book isn't going to be your cup of "tea". Not the best and certainly not the worst, so it gets three stars from me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to understand - maybe a little too simple July 24, 2013
By Sharen
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very clear and easy to understand instructions, but lacking details and complete ideas. For a very basic explanation of the DIY process, the book is okay,but the author fails to come back around and flush out details discussed early on, such as the process for adding fruit in the second fermentation or basic guidelines for doing so. In general, a good introduction to the subject, but a very underdeveloped guide for someone wanting to know more about making their own Kombucha.

3.0 out of 5 stars Buchi for Beginners August 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A primer for anyone exploring making kombucha. There is info on the history and health benefits of kombucha along with the brewing process. This book needs more information on how to make different flavours of buchi and photographs of scobys would be helpful. Overall, an introductory look at the brewing/fermenting world

I loved the easiness of reading and following the directions and advice in this book. It has seriously saved me a bunch of money.i was paying 4:00$ to 5:00$ a bottle for my kombucha to keep myself somewhat healthier three or four times a day.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.. Oh my husband thanks you as well!

Good step by step instructions. Turns out I don't care for Kombucha. It's like drinking vinegar. No thanks. Healthy or not, I'd like to keep the enamel on my teeth.

5.0 out of 5 stars great, but short,
I would call this a "paper" not a book. It's short. I read the entire thing in 10 minutes. However, the information is spot on and reliable.
