Description

Kombucha is a refreshing way to use up leftover fruit produce from your garden or fruit basket*… It is a fruity, fizzy, refreshing drink that’s a great alternative to wine and beer. At the same time, there is some evidence that kombucha’s natural pre- and probiotics support the gut and other systems. So, it’s refreshing AND good for you! Win. 

The key to a good kombucha is, of course, a good mother plant or scoby. Scoby stands for Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast. We supply a proven mother to start off your brew. If cared for your mother will produce other mothers that you can store in a Scoby ‘hotel’ or give away to friends. Don’t worry – we’ll include directions in our comprehensive direction leaflet. 

Your Scoby will arrive in a 1 litre Consol preserve jar, together with a portion of starter. Although the jar will be sealed just before dispatch, it’s important to open up the Scoby as soon as you get it so that the organisms can breathe. You don’t want to leave your Scoby airless. That’s just cruel. To let your Scoby breathe, and to keep out the fruit flies that just love kombucha, we enclose a small square of cotton muslin that you can fit using the Consol ring (as per the image). 

* Use fruit that’s past its prime, or cut out the damaged parts and use the reminder. Your kombucha scoby doesn’t judge. 

In the box: 

  • Scoby and a portion of kombucha starter
  • 1 litre Consol preserving jar with lid and ring, and a square of cotton muslin
  • Instruction leaflet with recipes
