Yeh, now we're talking, hunt kambutcha. Are they native to the U.P.? I'll give the beast a fighting chance. I'l only use my lethal hands.

Just be careful, I hear komboucha is also hunted by vegans.


Eat anything you want, but make it yourself.

Not sure if they'll take a nicely hand tied lure, Chief.

Aren't we just a silly bunch! Reminds me of when we had the DC HotTub, and the shenanigans of past years. Are you listening, Mudbug? The ladies had the hot tub, and the guys camped on the other side of the virtual lake, and would sneek over in the evening to cause friendly mischief.

Well, I bought a bottle of it at the grocery store today ($3.49). We shared it over ice and it had a strange, hard to describe slightly fizzy yeasty taste. It was interesting and not unpleasant, but we wouldn't go out of our way to purchase it again, and certainly not go through the trouble of making it. Besides, after reading more about making it, I wouldn't take the chances of unsafe contamination.

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