Full Disclosure


Hi - I'm Hannah Crum, The Kombucha Mamma and I sell Kombucha cultures and brewing supplies online at www.KombuchaKamp.com  No other companies are permitted to sell their wares to the KommUnity.  You are welcome to share your extra cultures in the SCOBY Exchange Forum, but may not charge more than the cost of postage. 


HOWEVER, if you teach a fermentation class and would like to promote it here, by all means, please do so, even if you charge a fee.  I'd like others to set up their own Kombucha Klatches in their own communities so that we continue to spread the word about Kombucha tea and its many wonderful health benefits.

Kombucha without a scoby?

Last summer I attended a fermentation event in Santa Rosa, California. One of the speakers was the owner of House Kombucha in San Francisco. Her talk was titled "Kombucha Without a Scoby." She said that you could brew kombucha with just the starter liquid - no scoby neccesary. She said, "We just skim it off and throw it away." I started a test batch without a scoby yesterday. I'll let you know how it turns out!See More
