18 Reasons and Shana Astrachan want to show you how to have your own kombucha at home!
Kombucha is a fermented drink of a sweetened tea that has been brewed using a macroscopic solid mass of microorganisms. It's said to contain essential nutrients like viable probiotics, amino acids, antioxidants, polyphenols and active enzymes, and have many health benefits!
In this workshop we provide you with an alternative to commercially produced Kombucha by teaching how to brew your own, saving you lots of money and getting unique flavors. Shana Astrachan will show how to safely brew a supply at home. Plus, each participant will go home with their very own S.C.O.B.Y. baby, the 'symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast'.
