Making kombucha is easy, but understanding why and how this fermentation process works will give you the tools to have fun with booch experiments (while being totally safe) in your own kitchen. Ever had a question about the health of the SCOBY (or wonder what a SCOBY is in the first place?). Come on by to learn tips, tricks and techniques for making your best booch!

We’ll cover:
•Myths about kombucha and health
•SCOBY health
•Continuous brew
•Single batch brew
•Flavorings/secondary fermentation
•Fizz
•Fermentation basics

Everyone will go home with a bottle of kombucha flavored in class and their own jar of kombucha to ferment, complete with a SCOBY. Kombucha samples will be provided by Easton Farmers’ Market vendor, Don DeVault of Pheasant Hill Farm.
