Kombucha Starter Culture


Our Dehydrated Kombucha Starter Culture is the perfect way for the "Laid back brewer" to experience Kombucha fermentation at home.

The live cultures are shipped in a dehydrated state, so it can stay on your shelf until you are ready to get started! Rehydrating the SCOBY takes about 4 weeks, and allows those new to kombucha brewing get the process underway. The rehydration process is fun to watch and a great way to learn about fermentation! After rehydrating the SCOBY, simply add it to sweet tea and ferment away to make a healthy, soda-like kombucha with all the tart zing you want.

Making Kombucha at home is not only a great way to save money, but it also allows you to control the ingredients and make a healthier tea!
