Yeah, I think I'd rather just have yogurt

Good article, thanks.

I mean come on friends, this is about the same level of dealing with bacteria and yeasts that we get from dealing with Sourdough.

Still interested in experimenting with it.

I made it for a few months. I didn't see any health benefits and taking care of it is the same as having a sourdough starter.

We cook sourdough and I think that's a big differentiator from komboucha.

I did quit making it because I had a skin breakout that couldn't be attributed to anything else. I haven't had anything like it before or since.

I think the health benefits, or lack thereof, depend on your specific space.


Eat anything you want, but make it yourself.

You can buy Kombucha at Stop and Shop and pretty much every regular grocery store around here.

I love it.

Never made it but I do make my own water kefir which is very similar (and tastier)

There are tons of recipes/how-to's on line. I also have the book "The Art of Fermentation" which is one of the more fantastic food books Ive read.

Please do and let us know how it compares to commercially available stuff. I've never had either but I'm quite curious. The only thing I've ever made that involves a starter is yogurt that I make from the raw milk from my own dairy goats. My milk had a high butterfat content so my yogurt was head and shoulders better than store bought.

well I certainly don't want to pay $5 a bottle for it.

That is right out.

If I ever see it, I'll buy some. I sure wouldn't go through the trouble of making it without knowing what it tastes like.

I've never seen a kombucha. When are they in season? Is it legal to hunt them?
